We've had breakfast here a few times (not nearly enough) and it has been truly outstanding every time. The place is clean, setting is funky but cool, service excellent and food superb. You are treated warmly when you enter, attention is paid to you throughout your meal, and you feel great when you leave! What a way to start a... More

This place is not very obvious, but it was recommended by a gas station attendant. The place is wonderful, serves a wide variety of breakfast and lunch items. The staff is so helpful. And they didn't mind us coming in wearing bike clothes. Smelly lol

Just what Franklin needs. A good downtown place to eat. R&J was very good. Reuben was one of the best I have ever had. Even without the Russian. The mild mustard sauce was tasty. The sandwich is almost to big. Wife had the rancho huvero's. Just really liked them. Please stick around R&J.

This place is a new favorite in the area. They just renovated expanding into the space next door as well. They pancakes and corned beef hash are some of the best I have ever had. Pancakes super fluffy and delicious served with real maple syrup standard. The corned beef hash is to die for. This place is a true hidden... More

Just thinking about Ralph & Jo's pulled pork makes my mouth water. Once you are inside this small restaurant you aren't quite sure where you are on the planet - NYC or NH. The food and ambience are excellent. The food is home made and freshly served - from baked goods to outstanding sandwiches. There is a variety of locally... More

We had a Sunday breakfast there -- we just stumbled upon it -- and it was first-rate. The best was the corned beef hash my wife had (she ordered it because she could see several slabs of corned beef in the cold case and figured that if they started with that, it would probably be good. It was.) It was... More

The owners are great, the food is homemade and very tasty. We mostly go there for breakfast, they make great corn beef hash.
