Truth be told their Hollandaise can make a truck tire taste sublime. Great coffee and friendly staff and breakfast to die for bring cash tip well and order the corn beef hash you wont be sorry.

Very much enjoyed the laid back atmosphere of the restaurant -- certainly no pretense. Waitress was first rate -- made recommendations, brought hot, fresh coffee early and often. Entirely pleasant experience. Finding parking was a challenge on a bitterly cold morning.

We love Fran Keller's - it's the best breakfast in Kennett and a real throwback. Order the local specialties: Scrapple, locally made sausage, and Creamed Chipped Beef. On weekends you can get the best grits I've ever had this far north - my fave is a bowl of grits with creamed chipped beef and a poached egg on top. You... More

I live right across the street so I have been here several times. Its an awesome spot to go if you want a QUICK breakfast. Service is good and fast. Food is your average diner food--Nothing fancy but they have all items you would want for breakfast. The restaurant is dated and old school but they do keep new and... More

Located in the heart of Historic Kennett Square, Fran's is a welcome stop for breakfast (and probably lunch, too). The menu has all the basics, from omelets to breakfast sandwiches. Nothing fancy, really, but good hearty breakfast food. The diner atmosphere makes it a great spot for a working breakfast, quick bite or take out sandwich. The coffee is pretty... More

This small-town diner is the perfect place for breakfast or lunch. Everyone who is anyone in this charming small town eats at Fran's daily. The conversation can be loud and raucous but that helps make the atmosphere. Within a couple visit the staff, sometimes with smiles and sometimes not, will remember what you like and what you don't and they'll... More

I'd only go for conversation if you are an extreme right-winger and want your opinions confirmed. Not bad if you avoid chatting with anyone, though, and stick to basic diner food, sometimes served with a smile and sometimes not.
