Friends suggested we meet here for lunch and I'm glad they did. Luncheon special was a cup of soup and a 1/2 sandwich. The pasta e fagioli soup was excellent and the sandwich (1/2 of a Tony Bennet....turkey, cheese, mayo, and asparagus) was more than enough. A full sandwich would have been way too much food for 1 meal. The luncheon prices are extremely reasonable. Tables are close but we never felt crowded nor rushed.
If you go shopping at the Wrentham Outlets come here for lunch. You won't regret it.

We were passing through Franklin to get gas and came across this ice cream shop with a long line in front. We gave it a try and understood why so many people were willing to wait for their ice cream.
The lines move quickly and I ordered an ice cream cone with mint chocolate chip ice cream. There was plenty of chocolate chips and the ice cream was very minty. Everyone else in our group also really enjoyed their ice cream.

We always enjoy our meals at Joe’s. There is a nice bar if you prefer to watch a game and enjoy the bar atmosphere where you can also eat at one of the high tables. Or enjoy the one of the larger booths in the dining room.
The menu offers a variety so most everyone will find something they like.
Join their club to get points which can be redeemed for cash off your dinning experience. Also they take the Franklin Panthers card which gives you another 10% savings.

Elizabeth's Bagels is a hidden gem in Franklin. If you are looking for something a bit more interesting than another chain cafe, you will find Elizabeth's Bagels ideal. The selection and service are both excellent, while the food and beverages themselves are top-notch.

I can't believe the Sunday buffet was as bad as it was. The only hot other or even warm was the soup and the pudding that was supposed to be cold. We lost our waitress right after she gave us coffee. She said she would be right back and never came. It took us quite a while to get someones attention to get us more coffee and juice. Service was horrible. It took and endless amount of time to just get the check. As I said the food was cool. Does anyone like to eat cold eggs?? It was a horrible experience in such a pretty setting. Never Never again.

We were a party of eight on a Saturday evening. All were pleased with their choices.
My wife and I shared the Pork Saltimbocca and Stuffed Veal Cutlet after hearing our server Sam's recommendations and could have not been any more pleased.
We enjoyed the Cinnamon Roll Bread Pudding for dessert, also recommended by Sam.
The noise level made it difficult to hear those at the other end of the table.
Would definitely return.

I routinely get cupcakes here and decided to get a birthday cake for my 5 yr old done. It was soccer themed and they did a wonderful job. The only thing I wish they would experiment with is dairy free options.

The King Street Cafe and Deli in Franklin, Massachusetts is just off an exit from Interstate 495. It is a well known location and we had a fifteen minute wait on a weekend for a breakfast table. The staff and kitchen do move people through quickly. Breakfast features the usual eggs, pancakes and waffles with a few Cafe specialties thrown in. The food is good but slightly over salted and the portion sizes are ample. Our server was friendly and efficient. There is parking for the large number of cars. Prices are reasonable.

Decided to try this place based on reviews before we headed to Gillette Stadium for a game. It's such a dilemma when you want to order several things on the menu because they sound so good. I ordered the corned beef hash with eggs, toast and a short stack of pancakes. The pancakes and eggs were good. However, the corned beef hash was phenomenal. It tasted like they mixed in maple bacon. Absolutely delicious. And the toast is apparently homemade bread and was really good too. Overall, they place was very clean, modern, and the waitstaff was very friendly. With the wait if you have too for a table. Definitely a place I'd return too.

Visited this place and was pretty good, sits in crowded Franklin Village Shopping Center. Similar to all other new frozen yogurt places popping up, you serve yourself and then there are tons of toppings, from sauces to bites to cereal etc. They weigh it and you are set to eat. It can really add up once it is weighed but still not too bad. The only complaint about this place, their "dessert lounge" is not that large and has limited seating so hopefully they will add seats outside.
