Franklin Shops On First Street
The warm aromas of chocolate orange and Creamsicle tisane emanate from above, rousing the senses of visitors as they climb the spiral steps from Franklin Shops into Tea & Wine Loft. Along with blooming teas, domestic and imported beers and wines wash down the loft's roster of edibles, which include quiches, tuna salad, and numerous vegetarian and gluten-free options. White couches line the walls, beckoning guests to plop down and enjoy their plates as they shed single tears over the beauty of the artwork adorning the space. Those with an adventurous streak can subject themselves to the elements in the outdoor seating area before visiting the loft's retail area to restock on loose-leaf teas and teapots.
