This is what you expect when you dine in a quaint town. Diner setting with great breakfast items. Quiet and friendly. Omelettes were perfectly prepared and tasted great! In a town where everything is going “high end” it’s nice to find a reminder of good...More

I will start with the positive. The staff was very friendly. The coffee was good. The negatives-the restroom (male/female shared) was not clean. The seating wasn’t comfortable in the restaurant, and the pancakes and French toast weren’t very good at all. Definitely overrated to us.

We have to stop here every time we come to Franklin. Their sandwiches are divine and their homemade cinnamon rolls are to die for. They are so good and fresh. We always make a point to stop in for breakfast or lunch.

Great croissant sandwiches paired with various daily soups. LOVE the tomato bisque and a grilled cheese! Clean interior, great service Order at the counter, pick up at the counter. Seating gets a little scarce at peak times.

The Franklin Mercantile Co. is another nice eatery and coffee shop. The breakfast is great and there is outdoor seating.

Excellent attention to detail. The Black Forest Ham Panini was super delicious as was the cucumber salad and baked potato salad. The accompanying spices were perfectly blended and not overpowering. A half a block off Main St. but worth the effort of seeking out.
