Franks is a lot bigger than it looks on the outside. The food is delicious, and doesn't take too long to cook. We like going there for breakfast.

We go as a group to Frank's for breakfast to celebrate birthdays. There are usually 12-15 that attend these celebrations. We call for the reservation and give them a count. The staff are very efficient at getting our orders to the kitchen. They keep the coffee poured and take great care of us.

Food was ok at this cafe. Everyone ate well and it wasn't overpriced. No sight lines of the action around town while you are indoors. It's a simple place for a meal.

We had a late lunch here one afternoon while we were on vacation. Bryan was our server and he was excellent, very nice and polite, attentive and efficient. As it was between lunch and dinner hours they didn't have a buffet going, but they have a lot of choices on their menu. I decided on a half-order of spaghetti along... More

We stopped here for breakfast. The service was excellent and the food was good. I especially liked the home made breads. They also serve lunch and dinner though we were not in town long enough to try these meals.

Went here for breakfast, generous portions-they heap on the bacon- at a decent price. Clean and friendly.

This is a small local restaurant frequented by the towns folk and we thought it was great. They had a buffet the day we went in. The waitress was really courteous and we would recommend to anyone visiting the Soo area.

A few of us got the breakfast buffet and the eggs looked like they were powdered. No one tried them. The sausage gravy was like paste. Toast came out burnt. The omelet looked decent. The short stack of French toast was absolutely tiny (like for a 2 year old) but she said it was good. Seriously would only bother stopping... More

Because we had our dogs with us we ordered takeout. We were able to sit at patio tables right outside the restaurant. Best breakfast wrap I think I have every had. Clean and friendly service!

They serve large portions of good food at a reasonable price. We had a huge spaghetti dinner, and a turkey dinner. Both very good.
