An urban cafe oasis with Frankston's best courtyard garden
Eeny, meeny, (miny, mo)
Is a Frankston cafe you must go ...

Positioned near the corner of Young and Wells Street, Eeny Meeny cafe is somewhat reminiscent of an old school American diner, with 1950s vinyl chairs, LPs mounted to the wall with old classics playing on the stereo, and an array of quirky vintage bric-a-brac you can play i-spy with.

Don't let its name fool you into thinking Eeny Meeny is teeny-weeny either, on first view you might not see much in the way of seating options other than smaller tables with aforementioned vinyl chairs coupled with an in-built cushioned bench, but if you head to the back of the cafe you will be met with an outdoor courtyard oasis complete with toasty wall-heaters making it all-season suitable and rather cosy in winter.

Despite its retro charm, Eeny Meeny serves modern wholesome food, with a mouthwatering cake display to feast your eyes over before you even start to decide on your main meal.

Food is far from your average fair, with interesting choices such as eggs with chorizo and feta baked beans accompanied by potato and kale crisps, slow cooked beef with orange and pine nuts matched with cheesy polenta, and a delectable specials menu including hearty soups such as artichoke with rosemary oil.

For the little people in your life, there are no kid menus per se, however, anything from Eeny Meeny can be made in smaller portion to suit your child, or do as we did and order a meal big enough to share. Milkshakes and babycinos will undoubtably bring a smile to your little ones face should you decide to order one.


If you're only in for cake, Eeny Meeny is the place to be. Don't expect a bog standard caramel slice here, instead we are talking double chocolate and peanut butter brownies, pistachio tarts, little figgy friands and ginger cake with lemon icing to satisfy your sweet tooth.

Other than Aum Shanti, which is very different but unique in its own right, Eeny Meeny fills the cafe void in what is otherwise lacking in Frankston; an unexpected stylish cafe that you would associate with Melbourne's inner-city rather than end-of-the-line suburbia. If you find yourself in Frankston, do stop by for a nourishing treat and enjoy Eeny Meeny's friendly retro vibes.

Its probably called Eeny Meeny because you have to say that rhyme to decide what to get.
