Two tour buses with 100 hungry Seniors descended on this restaurant mid-morning on a Thursday. The restaurant had closed to the general public to set up for our arrival. The entire staff really rallied and came through with flying colors, offering us all two choices for breakfast. Food & service were well thought-out and everything moved pretty smoothly. Staff kept... More

My wife and I were looking for a casual breakfast option for mid morning. We desided on J Christopher's because of the location access just off 65 hwy. The store has good exterior signage and good parking. Upon entering we were quickly met and seated . The interior is simple and open. Tables, booths and counter seating could handle most... More

I go here quite often and let me say I Love the food. The service is good as well, however be prepared for noise. The floor is tile and a high flat ceiling, and it gets very load in there. You hear every conversation and every fork on plate. If they are busy it is hard to have a conversation.... More

But today I had the cutest, best server, decent chocolate chip pancakes and the single best corned beef hash I've ever eaten. It was mostly meat and it was loaded with Rosemary and other fresh herbs. It was crispy but not dry. I'll be back for the hash for sure.

The skillet was absolutely fantastic. It was fresh and felt upscale. The blueberry crunch pancake on the side is a must have item when you visit. My daughter loved her Dinosaur meal. I highly recommend this restaurant. It offers the best breakfast in Franklin. The service is fine, but not exceptionally fast. However, when I asked for steak sauce, and... More

This is one of the locations that our family chooses for our Saturday morning breakfast. Most everyone got their usuals - french toast, crepes, etc. All of the food was wonderful. The service was a little slow, particularly with the drinks. It might have just been an off-morning for our server. We will be back. :D

After finding out that my hotel did not provide complimentary breakfast, we settled on this little place. The food was great, the service was fast, and the staff was friendly. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for an affordable yet sit-down breakfast at a great location. Also looks like a great lunch selection offered.

We stumbled on this place while shopping one day. It is a bit hidden from the street. Inside is very colorful with funky pictures on the wall. I was very surprised that they had not just gluten free choices but a seperate gluten free menu. I haven't had a waffle in years so I was very excited to taste this... More

Unique twists on common breakfast dishes makes this place very busy. Service was not bad, but not outstanding. Worth a visit.

Great hidden little breakfast spot near Cool Springs. They have something to offer for everyone. The waffles and hot chocolate are superb! I am a vegetarian, and while they don't have a lot on the actual menu, they easily accommodate my complicated order so I get exactly what I want.
