Description: Fran's is a family-owned and operated Toronto institution known for its home-style cooking and warm, welcoming atmosphere. Operating since 1940, Fran's is famous for several comfort dishes, most notably the Banquet Burger, which original founder Fran Deck created. Other diner classics that remain a tradition include Fran's famous chili, award-winning rice pudding and homemade apple pie. Fran's serves a wide selection, including generous all-day breakfasts, housemade burgers and steaks - and don't forget to ask us about our vegetarian options. Welcome home to Fran's!

Enjoyed a homestyle breakfast. The only complaint was the homefries (which sadly I was particularly in the mood for). They were more like cubed french fries (tasted deep fried rather than pan fried). Everything else was great though. Enjoyed the speedy friendly service.

Just like a diner should be- booths, TV,neon lights and a wide range of meal choices from burgers to chilli.
Great atmosphere and good value, but at 9.30 pm my sandwich was a little tired!
Still , my husband loved his chilli and his omelette and the service was super attentive. The coffee was as good as you get in New York and with the decor and a little imagination ,you could feel that you were almost in the big apple its self.
Great for family brunch on acold winter day!

I ordered the Avocado Club with bacon and chicken with fries and coffee. It came to $17.26 with tax. The club was very good as was the excellent coffee (I had 5 cups). Because of the size of the meal I was only able to eat about half of the fries. Normally at a restaurant I would have finished them.

The food is fresh, timely and the restaurant has repriced their selection back to a reasonable rate. The only thing to watch out for is group reservations. Make sure you plan in advance by at least a week and double check two days prior to your reservation (if they accept them). The back area is nestled away and if you're not careful, you may inadvertently get overlooked with a large group.
