Great Place for A Saturday Morning Breakfast Out – I have been a Merridee's fan for years - the bakery items as well as the breakfast and lunch offerings are tasty and well prepared. It has a quaint atmosphere and whenever I have friends visiting in town, I make it a point to take them at least once to Merridee's and everyone loves it.
On the downside ....the majority of the employees on th ecounter are young kids and basically have an air of disinterest and a condeascending attitude. The potential is there to totally turn-off a customer, but overlook this lack of breeding on their part and enjoy the fabulous food!!
Amazing local place! – Hard to find good local places anymore... This is definitely one of them! Amazing food... Great for a brunch with all the girls! Their pastries, coffee drinks, etc. are awesome. One of my favorites is the Chicken Salad Plate- yum! The lemon bars & mint chocolate brownies are very good as well! And the fudge.... I could eat all day! And last, but not least, their Fruit Tea is to die for!!!!!
Location is awesome as well- in the heart of downtown Franklin. Can't help but the love the local, historic area with great shopping! Need to check it out if you haven't yet for sure!
smug kids, great food – I don't go in here often because the kids who work here are a bit smug. Great food, though.
Good Stuff... Great Atmosphere – We were on our way to Nashville for a romantic weekend and stopped in Franklin. We loved the pastries and breads. The atmosphere in the place was a lot of fun too. We will definitely be back.
please offer online ordering – I called and placed a $60 takeout order for the weekend, my second order in a week. I am planning on being a regular customer. I want a loaf of sour cream bread. The man on the phone says there isn't any. I walk in and there it is. I order 2 mint fudge, 2 coconut fudge, and 2 heavenly hash brownies. The man on the phone says there are no coconut fudge brownies. I go in and there they are. The man on the phone says they do have mint fudge brownies. I go in and there they are…not. The guys working in the bakery ask me if I want coconut fudge instead of the mint. Ok, so I get what I think are 2 coconut fudges. I ordered 2 lemon bars. I ordered French toast and biscuits and gravy. I get home and root around in the sack of brownies and peek in the other bags and don't see the lemon bars. I reluctantly call the bakery; I hate doing things like this. The man on the phone sounds defensive and abruptly says he packed the lemon bars himself with the chicken sandwiches (as opposed to being in the sack with the brownies – HELLO?). I go through the sack with the chicken sandwiches; there they are at the bottom puny as vanilla wafers under the chicken sandwiches. My bad. But honestly they were so tiny and how many folks would think to check under the chicken salad sandwiches when you have a sack full of brownies they should go in? I also asked where were the heavenly hash brownies then while I was rooting around under the chicken salad sandiwiches it occurred to me maybe just maybe the brown and black brownies I thought were peanut butter fudge were heavenly hash. And they were. My fault again. But I did not order 4 coconut fudge brownies. I wanted 2 coconut and 2 mint. My brownie order was totally screwed up. Oh well. HOWEVER, the heavenly hash brownies were delicious, the coconut fudge brownies were OK, the lemon bars were fantastic even though they were itty bitty, the sour cream bread was pretty good, the French toast stuffed with cream cheese was DIVINE. I did not get biscuits and gravy for me, but my partner says they were some of the best he ever had. So I will still be a regular customer. It would be nice if a couple of the people who worked in there could be a little friendlier. They leave you standing around like an idiot, too. And there are no labels or prices on most of the food; it is hard to figure out what you want. They promote takeout ordering on their website. I would strongly suggest online ordering as well; that way, everything is easier, and there is no confusion.
Good place – I am not terribly impressed with the food, although the soups are worth trying. I go for the sweets and breads. I love the oat bread and all the different brownies. It gets too crowded for lunch and sometimes breakfast. I prefer to go earlier in the day. Kids do not give the best service, and I can actually find a seat.
Wonderful little place for coffee and lunch! – Merridee's is our favorite place to go on a cold day for hot coffee and a fresh lunch. Their soups and sandwiches are prepared to perfection, and the staff is friendly. We LOVE it!
Best Key Lime Pie – Being new to town, my husband and I took a recomendation to eat at Merridee's while we were exploring Franklin, Tn. We had their Daily Special Favorite - sandwich on their delicious breads, chips, and a slice of pie (they change daily). On that visit they had Key Lime and my husband loved it. Won't be hard to please him on a special day like a birthday or Father's day - I'll just buy him a whole one for his very own. It was that good! Great service too - and all with a smile and a "thank you".
Great sandwiches – This is a nice little place to eat; their pastries are to die for (try the cinnamon rolls!) and their sandwiches are delicious. The ultimate club is my favorite.
