Met up with a few friends for breakfast and glad we did!! Finally a decent breakfast place that doesn't cost an arm and leg. The service was excellent which was impressive because it was packed and very busy. Cudos to the staff, breakfasts came out together (again impressive since we had a group) it was cook perfectly all under $20!!... More

The clerk at the Motel 6 directed us here for breakfast, and for that I’m very grateful. Fran’s is a friendly little place where you get good food and prompt, attentive service at modest cost. My very filling breakfast – two eggs, sausage patty, home fries, toast and bottomless cup of coffee -- cost just $8.16 plus tip. Fran’s is... More

My adult daughter and I stopped in early on a Sunday AM and being that it was pretty early we were seated immediately. The daughter had an omelette with spiced beef and veggies, finding the egg a little too uncooked for her liking. I had two eggs and sausage gravy over biscuits, all was good but the gravy was a...

First visit - food was okay- served quick and order was correct. Service was friendly. Atmosphere was unremarkable. There is a choice of table or booth seats.

This place is a hip, skip and a jump from the Motel 6 we stayed at in Lewiston. It's a small establishment, the tables and chairs are not brand new but definitely adequate. My friend got a breakfast sandwich with egg, sausage and cheese, along with a mounding, mouth watering order of the loaded home fries that had bacon, onion,... More

Have been going to Fran's Place for breakfast for years and I have not been disappointed. A very good breakfast menu, reasonably priced, with very good service. Would certainly recommend.

If you're looking for a local feel, straight ahead breakfast at an affordable price and friendly wait staff this is a good choice. Nothing fancy or unique, but quick service, nicely presented.

We decided to try Fran's one morning. We had our grown son and his girlfriend with us. The restaurant was not busy as the real breakfast crowd had gone and we were the straggling late crowd! I immediately noted the cleanliness of the dining room, and shortly thereafter, the restroom. We all ordered different items: french toast, eggs, crepes and... More

My wife and I stopped here for breakfast with another couple. The restaurant has been recommended to me, but my other visit had not been strongly positive either. All four of us found the restaurant to be uncomfortably cold, although the temperature outside was only average for a winter day. The waitress turned up the heat, but still it wasn't... More
