Stay Sweet

in Downtown Franklin, Indiana

Main and Madison Market Cafe

You’ve already made the right choice walking into Main and Madison Market Cafe. The hard part is choosing between all of their baked goods. You cannot go wrong with the blueberry cream cheese danish, their brownie brick, the giant brioche cinnamon rolls, or my personal favorite, their iced sugar cookie. 

Jack’s Donuts

Jack’s Donuts is a Sunday morning tradition for my husband and I. We love to stop in and grab each of our favorite donuts. My go-to donuts are the chocolate cake and a tiger tail. The chocolate cake donut is dense and rich while the tiger tail has a perfectly glazed crunch on the outside with a light and airy inside. You can’t beat Jack’s Donuts!

Norma Jean’s Pastries

Craving something sweet after lunch? Norma Jean’s is the perfect place to stop by. They not only have a wide variety of some of the best macarons, but their friendly atmosphere and community mindset make them a wonderful downtown spot. When you stop in, try their key lime or salted caramel macaron!
