    Had the chicken and waffles. Chicken was perfectly crispy, waffle was soft and warm! But if you're expecting a heaping amount of chicken you will be disappointed.

    Nice service, but worse hot wings sauce I have ever tasted. It was SO salty, as if the sauce was too old and stale. Just get the burger.

    The service is fast. Prices as well as food are ok. I wasn't impressed with anything, but I wasn't disappointed either. Worth trying!

    Servers are always really friendly! Can't go wrong with breakfast here, although there's a lot of places where a big breakfast would cost $5 instead of $15.

    I remember once I went in and order a double slice of lemon meringue pie. The waitress was like "Are you sure? That's half a pie." I settled for a single slice. LOL

    Fran's is a legendary breakfast joint in Toronto. Don't forget it's open 24/7 so you can eat hash browns drunk off your ass. Although if you're reading this at 3AM I don't need to tell you that!

    When the waitress suggests you might be ordering too much food, you listen to her. I'm still full.
