Frank's place was a great spot within walking distance of the hotel. Standard breakfast selections but made to order and filling. Bacon is deep fried and sitting at the bar you got a draft from the door. But great breakfast. I enjoyed the fact all their bread was made from scratch.

Breakfast was great and the amount was very very good especially for the price. We were there the 24th of October so to our surprise the town was pretty much closed up, but Frank's was open and what a good surprise that was. We will go back next fall

We had the breakfast buffet once and ordered off the menu one day. The buffet was great and ordering off the menu was nice too. I highly recommend the rye bread toast.
