My first stop when visiting Franklin from out of a state for the past 20 years is Meridee's. You can't beat their delicious eggs and pastries for breakfast. I always buy a fudge or chess pie to take home. Best iced latte I've ever had. Super fast and friendly service in the middle of cool downtown Franklin.

What a great small town restaurant. We stopped for lunch. I chose not to eat gluten so was little nervous with the name breadbasket, but I had the best salad! Fun atmosphere and very friendly staff. Enjoy!!

Stopped in for lunch. Had house special chicken salad sandwich, very good. Excellent bread! Finished the meal off with French Silk pie, wonderful! Smooth with a delicate crust.

This is an amazing place for lunch. Check out the chicken salad and pimento cheese and the homemade bread. Also, don't miss the great cookies and cakes.

One of our family favorites! Everything is wonderful - from pastries to soup and salad; from healthy to not-so-healthy!

This place is just fun in spite of the fact they do a very busy lunch. Always something to see while you are nestled at your table waiting for your delightful order to be prepared. We love their curry chicken salad sandwich which you can order as a combo meal with chips and a slice of their old fashioned homemade... More

My wife and I stopped in for lunch based on TA reviews. We were in town visiting some of the local historical sites. I ordered a wrap and my wife ordered a plate that contained chicken salad, a fruit salad, and cinnamon bread. It was all very good. However (as others have commented) the wrap comes with no sides.
