“The BEST pies!”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

All of Merridee's offerings are tasty, but the pies are simply THE BEST! Each day they feature 2 different pies that are made fresh that day. If you're in town on a Wednesday definitely pop by for a piece of cherry (and take a whole pie home with you!)! I believe they also make the pecan pie that day, which is also delicious! Also had the key lime pie & chocolate silk while we were in town during our visit--both were scrumptious! (Seriously, we absolutely love their pies!) Chicken salad is also great...that happens to be the house special, which you can get with chips and a piece of pie for a nominal price (like $8)...it's a deal! If you're in Franklin, go to Merridee's!

“Homemade baked goods are insane!”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

Just off the main road downtown, this is a great place to stop for coffee any time of the day. They have a variety of coffee drinks, hot and cold, and they have fresh bakery goods (and free samples!) Our favorite was the sugar cookie, but they have pies, bars, muffins, etc. Nice and cool inside on a hot day, good place to stop by if you're shopping downtown. Comfortable place to just sit and visit while sipping a drink. Employees were really nice and friendly.

“Don't go if you are hungry!”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

We love the taste of the food, ... but the portion size are ridiculously small. We ordered the chicken salad sandwich and all we saw was 1 small (and I do mean small) portion of chicken salad. We did ask for more chicken salad and we were placated. However, it was a small portion.

The only good thing was the day old bread that you could buy for $1.50. That's the only bargain at this place.

Thank you for coming to visit and taking the time for a review. We are sorry you were unhappy with the amount of food you were served. I don't think anyone can ever get enough of that chicken salad, but we'll definitely take your comments into consideration. We hope to see you again, even if it's just for the day old bread!

“Delicious”
Reviewed June 7, 2013

Their curried chicken salad on viking bread is well worth the trip. The atmosphere is kind of hectic sometimes because it's so crowded, but it's still worth it for lunch. Delicious baked good of all kinds!
