There is a great coffee house in Franklin called MelDiva's. It has great atmosphere and on Friday and Saturday nights they have live music. It is located right in the center of town. People may think that it is closed because all of the construction that is going on around it, but it is definitely open. I highly recommend the Jamaican Craze coffee. It is great. They also have great sandwiches and soups.
It is a great place to relax and read a book, or to meet with friends and catch up.
