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

Great place for breakfast. The diner is a 1900's era Pullman observation car that served as the Presidential Railcar until 1926. It was converted into a diner and moved from Seattle to Spokane and has been serving breakfasts ever since. Highly recommended.

Frank’s corn beef and hash is the best! The downtown diner is our favorite. They have a second location away from downtown. The food is standard diner food but very good. The decor in the old dining car is really cool. A must eat at...More

Good wholesome food in a quaint dining car. Ingredients from local farmers. From giant waffles, bacon and eggs to hamburgers and fries. Or... try the cobbler or an ice cream shake. Plenty of choices fior young and old. A pleasurable experience. Recommend 100%.

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
