Frank's is a fabulous restaurant with exceptional Ambiance. It's a beautiful old train car. It looks like the stained glass is authentic, or should I say the original. The ornate wood is absolutely beautiful. If you sit at the counter you can watch the chefs...More

Voted and best breakfast in town and I have to agree. You might have a wait but it’s worth it! Fantastic crispy hash browns and service is quick! Quaint little train car dining but so good!

We sat at the counter because space opened there first, and I'm glad we did. The family awaiting a booth had to wait an extra 20 minutes. This place is ALWAYS busy! We also got to watch the short-order cooks at work and were thrilled...More

Great breakfasts, ample quantity, good variety, warm atmosphere and friendly service. Only downside was our guest uses a walker and it was hard to get around because the passage is narrow.

We were in town four days and needed to eat here twice. Small business that takes care of their employees. We shared meals on both visits, so you'll get plenty of food. First visit we had Frank's Combo at breakfast. Came with eggs, bacon, hash...More

Sunday mornings are the very busiest time at Frank's. If I were going to breakfast on Sunday morning, I might divert to Frank-e-doodles at Division and 3rd, Not as chic, but if you like you bacon crisp, they have the best... More
