Their molasses cookies are a hit with the kids. Buy some homemade bread for the next day. Merridee's has been a local favorite for over 20 years. It's not a chain, so if you want a feel for Franklin and the locals, go there for lunch or a quick snack.

Yes, it's a chain restaurant, but the interior is the former location of an old Franklin bank. Paintings by a local artist are hung on the walls. The pizza is delicious, fresh, and reasonably priced. You won't be disappointed. Much better than Pieology!
