It is very well located on the road. The owner is very friendly and helpful. The brunch was very good and tasteful.

On a good day you are 25 minutes from Nashville. The likelihood is you need to settle in and enjoy the 45 minutes of traffic. Regardless, it is worth the trip. Why read further, just go. Still here?! Okay, start with the bacon smoked devil...More

Great brunch. Outside of downtown though, about a 20 minute drive. Great drinks too for about $9. Friendly staff. More expensive than some brunches but was delicious and nice location.

Friends really enjoyed brunch. The blood orange mimosa was great. Was a little pricy. Would go back again.

Sophisticated Southern and Gourmet Country are great ways to describe the cuisine at the charming Mack & Kate"s Cafe. Named after two sisters, MacKenzie and Kathleen, our family owned and operated establishment will make you feel right at home. Started in a small, sleepy town, Mack & Kate's humbled beginnings took place in a small service station. This charming little destination dining spot grew over eight years, resulting in the Strawn Family relocating Mack & Kates to Franklin, TN.
We enjoy seeing our friends from our early days and our new friends here in Franklin.
We use the freshest and finest when it comes to our ingredients and always support local farmers and growers. We pride our self in our accommodating and knowledgeable service team and the ability to consistently feed our customers what they are looking for; the freshest from the best.
