Freshly prepared; not a place if you are in a hurry. Sandwiches have an abundance of meats and cheese. Is a definite place to visit again.

I had the roast beef sandwich that was toasted with a side salad. The "side" salad was fantastic and so was the sandwich. I like that it has healthy sides since travelers often "junk out". The store did close 15 minutes earlier then their posted times.

We ate both a lunch and breakfast here. The selection was good at both meals and the prices were reasonable. The food is brought out quickly. The breakfast croissant was wonderful

Although the food is nothing to RAVE about, it's a good little lunch spot when you're in Franklin. I always enjoy the atmosphere and they have great fruit tea! I'm not sure if they always do dinner, but their dinner is good! They also have some delicious chocolate mousse type cake that is amazing, but I hardly ever see it... More

We booked the entire restaurant for my son's wedding rehersal dinner. My wife discovered this spot so we booked it. I estimate we had about 60 people there, and I would say the size was perfect. The owner and his staff were so nice and took care of everything. They served us meat and chicken along with several vegetables. After... More

I went here last month and I love it! Me and my boyfriend ordered a sandwich to share and it was worth every dime.

My wife and I are both very happy with our lunches at the Mercantile Deli, it was one of the better lunches we had on our 10 day trip to Kentucky and Tennessee. My sandwich was loaded with meat, cheese and veggies. The chili was great!

The mercantile deli is a staple in downtown franklin. It is a bit teeny and can get busy around lunch time but I always try to snag one of the outside tables on the sidewalk. All of their sandwiches come with a side and they serve a hefty portion of meat on those sandwiches too. I can never finish the... More
