Reviews for Franklin Cafe

Fantastic neighborhood restaurant with a great vibe and good food and drinks. Casual atmosphere with nice booths and good bar scene. They offer some great comfort food and fun drink menu. No parking but on a quiet street with some shops and other restaurants next door. Come early if you don't want to wait for a table as it's a small place and gets crowded on weekends. Fun spot to catch up with friends and see a local crowd.

Great food and drinks! Tucked away in a cozy spot in the South End. The kitchen is open late and we were provided with quality service. Highly recommend the steak frites or the burger. Seating can be limited so be prepared to wait for a table and grab a drink at the bar.Food: 5/5

This was a great place.. I enjoyed the pork plate with potatoes.. my seat was outside. It was very comfortable, and clean. The restrooms were clean, but it's pretty tight in the restrooms. I went on Saturday night November 4th. The receptionist actually have personality and treat customers with care.Food: 5/5
