Deep in the South End, there is a small establishment where inexpensive, gourmet-quality food really does exist. The menu at Franklin Cafe ranges from meatloaf to sushi-grade tuna, all served with impeccable sides such as mashed potatoes with chives or lentil and bean sauce. Even the chicken livers are great here. The dining room is small and crowded, and the noise level can be high. This cafe, which has a full service bar, is very popular, and waits of an hour or two are common, even on weekdays.
