French Bistro

Unbeknownst to passersby, this unassuming eatery is the top-rated restaurant on Yelp, TripAdvisor, and Facebook in the area.

Caffé REL may not catch your eye at first glance. Nestled within a modest, gray building shared with a nearby convenience store, this unassuming gem hides just beyond the gas station pumps. You won’t find a waiting area or the option to make reservations here, which might lead you to wonder, “What’s the story behind this location?”

I would give them 10 stars if I could. I admin a local foodie group here in Franklin and today was our day to go to Caffe Rel and all I've gotta say is OMG everything that I had or saw come out was amazing. Everyone in the group loved what they had. Big thanks again to everyone at Caffe Rel. If you're coming to visit Franklin I highly recommend you stop in.
