    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!

    Always good food, always good service..

    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.

  • Ketellyn M.

    24h breakfast... enough said!

  • Jonny B.

    We love everything about this place. The service, the prices, the food. It's a classic!

  • Cheryl D.

    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

    Anyone an original 90210 fan?!? This place reminds me of the Peach Pit with the after dark attached lolBest breakfast ever!!!

    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!

    Morning Glory: Messy goodness! "Lighter" version of the Big Breakfast. You can substitute the waffles with pancakes or french toast.

    Fran's is always a crowd pleaser. Great breakfast! I've never been disappointed at any of the locations I've been to!

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

    The milkshakes are pretty solid. Nothing glamorous but just tasty shake. Chocolate in particular.

    Good to eat but not awesome plus the service sucks! Slow and all of a sudden they come with the bill.

    Food was excellent! Steamed beans were the best I'd ever had. Dessert like even! Fries were yummy and so was the burger. Service was good, waitress let us in on a few things which was appreciated.

    Raspberry pancakes are crap. Stick with blueberry -- or plain, even!

    Great foods for good prices. Can get a little loud but it's all good.

    HORRIBLE SERVICE. Stay away from the open faced hot turkey sandwich. Full of bones and was served on a sad wonder bread-type toast.
