Food and restaurants in Franklin

Café
“One of my top favorite restaurants. Yes, this restaurant is located in the same building as a gas station, but don't let that fool you. Caffè Rel brings amazing food and a wonderful ambiance. Be sure to check days/times open and to bring cash since they do not accept cards. (ATM beside them.)”

Grocery or Supermarket
“The brown-fronted store in the picture is the old, smaller Ingle's in downtown Franklin & the map shows its location (won't update to show the new Ingle's Market location). There are actually three Ingle's stores in Franklin but only one is the wonderful, new, large -Ingle's Market- located about 1/2 mile south of Franklin on Hwy 23. It has everything you could possibly want or need! It's a grocery but also offers a great selection of wines and beers, household items, a deli and bakery, even has a Starbucks. Plus, we've heard they serve a great breakfast too. Open 7 days a week, 6am-11pm.”

Grocery Store
“Bi Lo is a fine mid-sized grocery store. Although it is smaller than Ingles on Georgia Road, you may find everything you need without having to drive a couple more miles. ”
