“Delicious Baked Goods & Sandwiches”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

We stopped in for a snack, and found delicious, fresh baked goods, and good coffee. They serve breakfast and lunch for sure; not sure about dinner. It is clean, has several tables to sit down and have a very informal snack or meal. I had a Cheese Bear Claw which was fluffy, light & tasted delicious. My wife ordered an apple turnover with the same results. The staff are friendly, accommodating, and the place seemed clean. The menu included eggs & omelets, and Cuban sandwiches, barbecue, and all kinds of other wonderful baked goods. They also sell a variety of local gift items. We were very satisfied.

“Best Cookies ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

This place is a must if you are in Franklin! Their chocolate chip cookies are delish...scones too. The bread is a great accompaniment to dinner. We love it with chili or pasta. Like to stop before hiking and get some goodies. I have not tried the coffee but it certainly smells good. Highly recommend it.

Great bakery and the meal menu is very good. Comfortable location and very friendly. I highly recommend this location for an afternoon coffee and baked goods or sweet fare to take back to your dwelling

“Very good baked goods; the food is inconsistent”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

All of the bakery items we've tried have been very good. However, our lunches have have varied from a little below average to a little above average. For example, the pork BBQ sandwich was very good and the Reuben sandwich was good, but the Crab Alfredo and the Broccoli Cheddar soup were disappointing. The staff is small and it can take quite a while to get your food. Overall, we like lunch at Life's Bounty enough to go back occasionally when we're in Franklin. I definitely recommend the bakery items.

“Downtown Bakery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012

Life's Bounty Bakery is conveniently located in downtown Franklin. It offers lunch or dinner meals, although I haven't tried them. It has an ice cream counter and yummy, fresh-baked breads and pastries. It's a fun place to stop for coffee and sweets while shopping. I always get a loaf of their freshly made multigrain bread which is both delicious and a great value. All prices are very reasonable and service is always very friendly.
