Merridee's is an institution! Great baked goods! Great breakfast! The staff is very friendly. Get there early for breakfast as a line can form, and tables can get difficult to find. Had the french toast with cream cheese and fruit -- best french toast I've ever had!

My wife and I enjoy going to Merridee's for breakfast. I enjoy the made to order omelets and my wife usually goes for the egg salad sandwich. There is always a baked treat and several coffee choices.

I was very impressed with this restaurant and bakery. (With the entire town really!) we had a gluten free order and the staff went out of their way to accommodate us and make suggestions. It was an extremely busy time but they treated us as if we were the only ones there! Even checked after we ate to see if... More

I don't come here often but it is quite good when I do. They have different types of sandwiches primarily. It's a casual atmosphere that I just find relaxing.

On our 4 day trip, we enjoyed breakfasts and lunch at Merridee's. Everything was absolutely delicious. We even stopped in just to buy some pastries, cookies and pie to share with others. It is so cute inside. This is our third trip to Franklin and it is the one place that we will be sure to visit multiple times each... More

I'm fortunate to live nearby, so I've been often. Most recently I had the curried chicken salad sandwich and loved it. Others in my group enjoyed the chicken quesadilla and broccoli cheddar soup. Everything was good. I always order their pies for holidays. This is a nice spot for homemade options for lunch.

Isn't a treat to pick up a fresh-baked pie and spend more time with your loved ones, instead of in the kitchen? We look forward to seeing you... More

Whenever my mom from Minnesota is in town, I take her to Merridees; it's our go-to spot. Home made breads (love that cranberry bread recipe like the one I made for years, but better), pies, and entrees. Home made chicken salad and pimento cheese (a bit heavy on the mayo) on scrumptious choices of the freshest bread in town. I... More

Great sandwich lunch place, and by looking around, we aren't the only ones to feel this way. Place is always packed! But it's pretty much worth the wait. Excellent food, just excellent.

You're right, our Chicken Salad is a popular item, and we're glad you chose it for lunch. It's true that we tend to get a bit crowded during the peak breakfast and lunch hours. If you have a chance, avoid the rush and drop in during the week for a mid-morning breakfast, or even a sweet treat and coffee in... More

While visiting Franklin TN we stopped by for a local breakfast. This is a bakery/restaurant. Seems to be a local favorite - known for cinnamon rolls and caramel rolls. We had egg, bacon breakfast sandwich. Last time we tried this we came on Saturday morning - too busy, very popular ... but this end of the week (before 900am) was... More
