Located in lovely Downtown Franklin Historic Shopping District...offered soups/sandwiches/wraps/paninis/salads. Very cute decor, country type decor with old tables/mismatched chairs/etc. Nice little area outside to sit if you want. Down a little side street and not so crowded. All 4 of us had very good lunches. Mables Chicken Salad was good, but could have used a bit of seasoning. Fruit cups... More

Just happened upon this restaurant: Casual deli with a variety of sandwiches and sides. Daily soup special. WiFi available. Order first and they will call you when ready. It is good and expect a wait at peak times.

Freshly prepared; not a place if you are in a hurry. Sandwiches have an abundance of meats and cheese. Is a definite place to visit again.

I had the roast beef sandwich that was toasted with a side salad. The "side" salad was fantastic and so was the sandwich. I like that it has healthy sides since travelers often "junk out". The store did close 15 minutes earlier then their posted times.

We ate both a lunch and breakfast here. The selection was good at both meals and the prices were reasonable. The food is brought out quickly. The breakfast croissant was wonderful

Although the food is nothing to RAVE about, it's a good little lunch spot when you're in Franklin. I always enjoy the atmosphere and they have great fruit tea! I'm not sure if they always do dinner, but their dinner is good! They also have some delicious chocolate mousse type cake that is amazing, but I hardly ever see it... More

We booked the entire restaurant for my son's wedding rehersal dinner. My wife discovered this spot so we booked it. I estimate we had about 60 people there, and I would say the size was perfect. The owner and his staff were so nice and took care of everything. They served us meat and chicken along with several vegetables. After... More

I went here last month and I love it! Me and my boyfriend ordered a sandwich to share and it was worth every dime.
