Bites Nearby: Franklins

Bites Nearby takes a look at great places to eat that are just a short drive away.

Hand-crafted beers, delicious food and a funky store next door, is one of the hippest spots in Hyattsville.

I like arriving early and perusing the store for trinkets. They have really interesting kitchen items, adorable and clever coin purses and old-school candy near the front of the store. Franklins is honestly the perfect place to get together with friends, have a few drinks, some good food and definitely great conversation.

Michael and Nathan, I totally agree. This place is so cozy, I try to get there as much as possible. Nathan, what's your favorite beer there?

Cydney, I actually recall back when it was just a lovely sandwich shop, set up in the back area of the store. The front still had the awesome stuff to buy, and in back, you could order your fav sub by #. I gave Mike Franklin a hard time for like 3 years when they changed. I wanted that quiet cozy feel back. 1 of the last meals my family had in the old place found our booth next to that of the family from UP that died on 9/11. My son was playing peekaboo the whole time with their youngest, Dana. A bittersweet memory of a true lasting community hotspot.
