Our cafeteria-style eatery in The Franklin Institute is a lively, sun-filled place for a family meal. Our house-made soups and chicken tenders, crisp french fries, fresh salads and sandwiches, juicy hamburgers, and pizzas plus fresh-baked cupcakes and other desserts are familiar enough for kids yet sophisticated enough for parents' palates. Franklin Foodworks occupies one of the museum's two original wings on the main floor, a grand space with soaring ceilings, enormous windows, and spectacular views of the Parkway and Swann Fountain.
