Mother’s Day is quickly approaching, and you know exactly what mom wants (besides an all expenses paid trip to a remote island)…BRUNCH in Franklin, of course!

Franklin’s brand new brunch spot, Ruby Sunshine, is located in the new 231 Public Square building in downtown Franklin.

Speaking of biscuits, you must check out Biscuit Love, located in a beautiful historic home in downtown Franklin. You’ll find a scratch-made menu featuring Southern brunch favorites and some unique offerings as well! Share “bonuts” with mom or enjoy the East Nasty, featuring a buttermilk biscuit, fried chicken, aged cheddar and sausage gravy. It was even named the “Best Sandwich in America!”

Gray’s on Main
Mom will love this Franklin staple, located in an 1876 Victorian building that used to serve as a landmark pharmacy. Gray’s on Main honors Tennessee’s cultural heritage through unique spirits and flavors from the pre-prohibition era.

I am always looking for a good patio for brunching, and Tupelo Honey has the perfect one (not to mention the delicious food!) Offering creative Southern cuisine, you and Mom will find avocado toast and eggs, shrimp & grits, breakfast bowls, and “Tupelo’s famous chicken.” I’d also recommend saying “thanks for putting up with me for all these years, mom” by toasting with one (or several) of their mimosas.
