I stopped in for lunch and ordered the chicken salad sandwich based on the reviews I read and wasn't disappointed. It's a cute place with a nice menu, so I definitely plan on returning.

This is a cute little place right next to Pucketts in downtown Franklin. Excellent bakery goods available to carry out as well. Very busy though.

We were visiting family/friends over my husband's birthday. To celebrate, I gathered some sweet treats from several downtown Franklin bakeries. Merridee's had the best scones and the cookies were tasty and top notch, too! Definitely will review in the future!! Mmmm ...

We love this unique bakery/coffee shop/diner located in historic Franklin, TN. It's always busy, so have someone in your party grab a table when you see one open. The breads, pastries and food are always fresh and delicious.
