I was in town and went there to grab some lunch based on online reviews. The place is a bit of a throwback, an old style diner with older decor. This goes to the food as well. I had the club and they used real turkey made in-house. Fries and gravy were homemade as well and were perfect. Service was... More

Great little restaurant. Been in Alliston for years. New owners service is great and food is great as well.staff is very friendly. Usually go twice a week for breakfast. Love it as you get to meet a lot of friends who have been going there for years.

Fast, friendly, exceptional service and the perfect diner's experience. Lively and welcoming at value prices. Located across (Victoria Street) from the Tunnel Skate / Bike / Tattoo shop and next the the Library in downtown Alliston.

My earlier impression was that, awful a thought as it is, there is simply no place in Alliston to enjoy a decent breakfast. A casual check of the Internet threw up a lot of good reviews for Nan's. We were hopeful enough to at least give it a chance, and are glad we did. Good food, good service, good prices.... More

It feels like going back in time everytime I eat there. A real "mom and pop" feel to the place. Average food with decent prices. It must be ok cause I keep going back. But seriously...how hard can it be to make bacon and eggs?

Wonderful food - fresh, and homemade. I had the turkey club - it was fresh roast turkey - not the fake processed stuff. Fries and gravy were so good. Bathroom was clean and well taken care of.

I eat lunch at Nan's at least once a week, and usually have the same thing: a sandwich and coffee. Staff is friendly and service is fast. Nan's fits into the hometown diner descriptor and they have a very loyal customer base. I always leave pleased with my choice.

Drop into Nan's for breakfast or lunch - food is made right where you can see it and service is fast. The staff are so hospitable and will do what you ask them to do; such as "no cucumbers in my salad please" - and you get your salad sans cucumbers. I would go there more often if it weren't... More
