“Perfect!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 September 2013

We recently moved to Norh Georgia and after visiting Brasstown Bald, we decided we would drive the scenic route to Franklin, NC. Didnt have much of an idea of what we would find but ended up on Main St. At an outdoors store and couldnt find what we were looking for. And if u have never been to Main st. You should go because the old street setting with lots of cute little stores brings you back to a simpler time. As we decided to head back home we spotted Rosebud Cottage and said what the heck. It would be nice to bring back a little something from North Carolina. And my boyfriend spotted the sign for food! We went in on the store side and it smelled amazing. Its very well organized, not overcluttered like some other little stores. We ended up buying some candles so our house would smell as good as the store. Then we had decided to grab a drink and leave but after seeing the menu board we decided we needed a late lunch. He had a peppercini sandwich and cus cus and i had a chili dog with chips. Diverse menu yet simple and very very yummy!!!! The owner chatted with us a bit, she is a very sweet lady. Very good service. Personal attention and fantastic food was right up my alley. I will return at least once a month, its an hour and a half from our home, but is worth the trip! I cannot wait until we return again.

“Cute place-good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2013

After shopping with one of their helpful, friendly employees in gift shop, had lunch. Sandwiches, chicken salad and very nice atmosphere. Crowded, busy place. Others enjoyed it also. A good down-town place to eat. Try it-you'll like it!

Came in after walking the cute stores on the min street to have a light lunch and it was excellent. I got the half sandwich with API - tomato and grilled cheese - all good - nice presentation - neat little gem. Busy little place - will be back to try other items on the menue -

The Rosebud Cottage is an excellent choice. You can't go wrong with that turkey sandwich - great place to get some lunch.

“Local ambience with sweet treats”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2013

The Rose Bud Cottage is a cute little gift shop and restaurant on Main Street in downtown Franklin. We were a party of four. Upon arriving we asked if they served ice cream sundaes and were told no, but the young man behind the counter said he would be happy to see if he could accommodate us. He did just that, bringing out two beautiful sundaes with vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, chocolate sauce, and caramelized pecans. That took care of two of us. The others ordered a bowl of chocolate ice cream, hot bread pudding with melting chocolate chips and cups of specialty "Forte" hot tea. All selections were delicious. The cottage was a lovely place to dine and the gift shop offered a nice selection of good quality gifts to bring home from our vacation. We recommend this place as a nice place to visit while in Franklin.
