Nice location for deli / bakery but rather noisy lunch hour. Very casual and friendly staff. Excellent food - soup, salad and melts.

I've been going to Merridee's for over a decade. Great good, friendly staff, beautiful setting, live music events, and the chicken salad sandwich is amazing. Central to everything in Historic Franklin. Merridee's helps make Franklin what it is!

Merridee's is always on our breakfast out list of options. Everyone in the family has favorites on the menu. Peak times can get a little crazy, which lead to sitting problems. Definitely worth trying.

Visited Merridee's for a late breakfast on a Saturday. They were very busy but the wait was reasonable to place our order. The staff was just so nice and helpful. Then the food! It was beyond expectations. Highly recommend a visit to this establishment.

This local restaurant is southern lunch at its best. My wife and have dined here ever since we moved to Franklin over thirty years ago. From the chicken salad sandwich on Viking bread to the soups to the chocolate silk pie, you can't go wrong. The pimento cheese reminds me of my grandmother's recipe. Plan to do lunch early since...

We went to Franklin to tour the Carter House and stopped at Merridees Breadbasket for a quick bite. We felt like we had hit the breakfast jackpot! A very casual style of service, you order at a counter and the servers bring your food to you, perfect for a casual meal. The case with their freshly baked pastries, pies, cookies,... More

The Franklin go to bakery for cakes, pies, rolls and breads. It is self service once you order your food

It is great for families and couples. Great southern cooking dishes with ample servings. Short waits occur on weekends.

My husband had a french dip sandwich and I had the southwest chicken wrap and both were delightful to the tastebuds. There was live music as we dined and the atmosphere was as quaint as the town that we were dining in. We will definitely return during our next visit to Franklin.

We're glad to hear that you and your husband enjoyed your sandwiches. Our dinner menu (served Thursday through Saturday nights) and live music is one of the best kept secrets in town. Thanks for dining with us, and we look forward to your next visit. More

It's a long wait but well worth it. Great selection of foods and wonderful pastries. Try the fruit tea as well!

Thank you for your review. Our peak breakfast and lunch hours can be a bit busy, but we do our best to keep the line moving and get everyone their food as quickly as possible. If you have a chance, stop in for a late breakfast sometime, or maybe afternoon coffee and dessert – it's usually a little less crowded.... More
