Good coffee spot with evening music. Nice place to relax, get out of the heat and play some board or card games.

Stopped in here for a quick glass of wine & got to listen to some great folk music. She was getting ready to stop but played several more songs for us. Very friendly...great place to wind down after a long day!

I love Rathskeller. I can always go in there and find a friendly face, an amazing homemade cookie, and my very own cup on the shelf.

Rathskellers is a nice place for a relaxed evening date or just to chill out for a while and listen to music or play a game of checkers. The food is good. There is a bar there too but I don't drink so can't review...More

Great selection of beers for a cozy little place on back street. Love the atmosphere. The food selection is limited, but sandwiches are absolutely spectacular! Small pastry selection to go with the large coffee selection (which was great as well). The cheese bread is fantastic!...More

Please skip Main Street and walk down the alley by Books Unlimited and turn right to visit the only real coffee house in downtown Franklin. Good stuff!

Limited menu. Baked sandwiches. Friendly, hometown feel. Espresso and coffee drinks are a specialty.
