St. Francis Fountain
Review by: Michael Stern
The St. Francis Fountain is a charming little eatery that opened in 1918, closed in 2002, but then reopened with a fresh coat of paint but the same sweet lunch-counter menu and a retro-hip attitude. All of what the St. Francis Fountain serves is familiar and comforting – omelets and egg scrambles for breakfast, bacon cheddar burgers, swell milk shakes and real egg creams. Highlights of the menu include a breakfast item titled “Nebulous Potato Thing” (spuds, melted cheese, salsa, sour cream and an optional egg, chicken-cilantro soup served over a biscuit, and a vegetarian Reuben made with spinach, mushrooms, onions, Swiss cheese, sauerkraut, and 1000 Islands dressing.
Seating is at a counter or in wooden booths. Be prepared to wait, especially on weekends.
