We really enjoyed our lunch here of homemade chicken salad on homemade bread. They have a lot of breads and sandwiches and desserts to choose from. It was very busy while we were there. We would eat here again. It is basically wait on yourself restaurant.

We had the monti cristo (great) the club sandwich ( good too) and the portobello sandwich (excellent). You order at the counter so having a small line actually gives you time to ponder your options. The pies and pastries look fabulous but unfortunately, I opted to have the sandwich first and then determined I was too full to order pie!... More

It's great to hear that our sandwiches were a satisfying lunch for everyone. It is too bad, though, that you missed out on pie. Maybe next time you can drop in later in the day for a sweet treat and coffee. Thanks for visiting downtown Franklin! More

We came because of the Trip Advisor rating; it's #1 in Franklin. The rating is spot on and I wish they had a 6 for "better than expected!" It's like walking into a small town market/bakery/deli for lunch... We both got the sampler plate and I ate the best chicken salad, the best tuna salad and the best egg salad... More

We ate dinner there on Friday night. Nice variety of sandwiches and extras. The apple, bacon panini was delicious. My husband enjoyed the Philly Cheesesteak as well. Friendly service and live music that was a nice touch. Huge selection of breads and baked goods available for take out. Back door entrance was accessible.

When we are visiting somewhere my wife and I will split a meal. We do this ao we can try more places. This was one of my favorite place I have stopped at. We split a Monte Cristo sandwich and a Cinnamon Roll. Both were delicious. Before we left Franklin for Nashville we went back for some of their fresh... More

Thanks so much for stopping in for lunch. Sharing is always a good idea, especially when it means you'll have room for dessert! The Monte Cristo is a great lunch choice, and you can't go wrong with an Old Fashioned Cinnamon Roll any time of day. Thanks for visiting, and we hope you'll come back again soon. More

I have eaten at Merridee's Breadbasket quite often and it has always been a very good experience. Their food is homemade daily there on the spot and so anything you order is very fresh. Their menu changes daily so that you will get a variety of meals, but perhaps not what you were really desiring when you walked in the... More

Taking the time to make everything fresh each day – including baking all our breads, pies, pastries, and other sweet treats – is just a part of what makes Merridee's such a special place. The other part is our customers, who are some of the best people around. Thanks for such a nice review! We hope to see you again... More

A wild array of breakfast sandwiches, pastries and coffees. All are homemade and served in a quaint, country store setting in downtown Franklin, TN. Delicious and reasonably priced, this restaurant is in the heart of Franklin and connects with other stores for shopping convenience. Great for light or hearty appetites.

We love Merridees! Locals, tourists, meetings, meet-ups. Friendly service, great variety of fresh pastries and breakfast and lunch menus. In the middle of town, across from the courthouse and parking garage, next door to Pucketts. How southern is that?
