Hope to review the cafe when open in spring of 2015. Before, the indigo was a fine restaurant. If the cafe is as good it will be a good addition to franklin and surrounding area.

This small, upscale restaurant had a very diverse menu. However the owner decided mid year that it was time to close and pursue other interests. It will be missed.

The ambience was nice, but the food was very average. The waiter (which could be the manager) was a bit pushy about the amount of dishes we ordered. No vegetarian dishes on the menu, but the chef did create something.

It was just OK. Service was not the best. I have had Sunday Brunch at this restaurant and it was very good, but the dinner in April was just mediocre.
