Excellent attention to detail. The Black Forest Ham Panini was super delicious as was the cucumber salad and baked potato salad. The accompanying spices were perfectly blended and not overpowering. A half a block off Main St. but worth the effort of seeking out.

Eat breakfast or lunch here regularly, always good. Can get crowded, but a nice menu selection and a cute local hideaway. Don't try to go during a downtown franklin fest weekend if you want to park nearby. Occasional star sightings 😎

This is a good choice for a light lunch although the portions can be quite large! I had the BLT with the sun-dried tomato spread and it was so filling I couldn't eat it all. I think next time I would do the 1/2 sandwich...More

We had panini's, soup, quesadillas, and sandwiches. All were wonderful and in a very relaxing and comfortable environment. The only challenge was being able to hear our name being called when the order came out. I can't wait to go back!

At over $9 for a sandwich I expected it to be really good. Unfortunately it wasn't. No taste to it and the bread was stale. The quesadilla with steak was too salty and over seasoned. Not a place I would recommend or visit again. Friendly...More

Very nice little coffee shop type place to go into in downtown Franklin. Really good side salads and soups can be had here, with very good sandwiches also on the menu. You leave pretty full for about $12. Nothing special, but a good spot nevertheless.
