The Rathskeller is small and quaint with a family atmosphere everyone knows everyone and the staff is always friendly and accommodating. Most weekends they have live music from local artists. The serve a variety of beer wine and Ale and the best coffee in town with very reasonable prices.

Great selection of beers for a cozy little place on back street. Love the atmosphere. The food selection is limited, but sandwiches are absolutely spectacular! Small pastry selection to go with the large coffee selection (which was great as well). The cheese bread is fantastic! You do have to order at the counter and they bring the food (which normally...

Please skip Main Street and walk down the alley by Books Unlimited and turn right to visit the only real coffee house in downtown Franklin. Good stuff!

Limited menu. Baked sandwiches. Friendly, hometown feel. Espresso and coffee drinks are a specialty.

A place to get away, relax, have a drink, and or pastry. Very nice and helpful staff. There is a game section too. It's a easy going atmosphere

Everytime I have family or friends visits, I make sure I take them here. The atmosphere is cozy and inviting, and the coffee/food is delightful. On top of this, they are one of the few places in Franklin that is actually open after 8 pm!

There was a guy with his guitar playing to loud for people trying to talk, but outside that, it's a place to... More

Went once, didn't know what to expect. Glad my hopes weren't high...had coffee and a pastry..decent prices, friendly, but not for everyone. Guess a lot of kid's parties are here and a place for poetry readings, that sort of thing...beer is available, no liquer license. Too dark for my taste.

Adam and his wife make you feel at home from the very first visit, get there early on music nights and enjoy the cold beer and great baked goods
