Frans birthday Toronto

Fran's offering 1940s pricing to celebrate 75th birthday

Remember the '40s? You may not even remember your last late-night dining adventure but Fran's will recall the decade this May as they celebrate 75 years of serving pie, burgers, and shakes to Toronto diners.

Fran's celebration plans for their big birthday event at Yonge and Front include retro austerity measures that will have you digging out your hair rollers: the original Fran's menu is coming back for one afternoon only - including the 1940s pricing that came with it.

What's on that historic menu? The ".25 cent Banquet Burger, .20 cent Tall Stack o' Pancakes and, of course, we couldn't forget the .15 cent slice of apple pie." Yeah, 25 cents. That's a burger for the price of one candy at 7-11.

The retro menu birthday bash runs at 33 Yonge St. on May 8 from 11am - 3pm. Show up early to avoid disappointment.
