About

Fran’s Restaurant has been around since 1940, when Francis “Fran” Deck opened the first Fran’s Restaurant: a modest, ten-stool diner at Yonge and St. Clair.

Today, Toronto comes together at this family-owned institution, drawn in by all-day breakfast, bottomless cups of coffee, homemade apple pie baked on-site, and the iconic Banquet Burger which Fran invented (it showed up on the original menu as the “Forest Hill”, named after an equally iconic Toronto neighbourhood).

Comfort food classics remain a tradition at Fran’s. The burgers are simple and tasty, ground in-house, daily. Do yourself a favour and order the Big Breakfast, pancakes made-from-scratch, and a thick, creamy milkshake.
