Frankie's Place: Top coffee, delicious food and friendly faces


Frankie's Place is a retro haven for vintage, food and coffee lovers alike. Located on Darby Street, the café boasts the flavoursome coffee, and an extensive breakfast and lunch menu.

It's the details that set the experience at Frankie's Place apart from other local restaurants. The walls are adorned with record covers, and sweets are served on hard-cover children's books. All coffees are complemented with a Tiny Teddy biscuit. You can sit down stairs to be part of the bustle, upstairs for a more intimate meal, or in a lounge-room styled section for complete privacy.

Whether you choose to come for breakfast, morning/afternoon tea or lunch, you will be welcomed with open arms by friendly staff, and a menu full of variety. Both menus offer a wide range of meals in different shapes and sizes. For example, the breakfast menu ranges from a small serving of cinnamon toast, through to the large-scale Happy Tummy Breakfast. There's something for Mr Health-Freak, Miss Sweet-Tooth, and everyone in between. My personal preferences for lunch are the bean and chorizo nachos, and the falafel salad.

Want to try a Dr. Seuss favourite? Try Green Eggs and Ham for breakfast; pesto scrambled eggs served on a croissant with ham. It's refreshing to find a café that takes a different approach to the traditional 'eggs, toast and bacon' breakfast dishes.

Coming for morning or afternoon tea? An array of cakes, macarons and other sweet treats garnish the front counter. Pistachio cigars, wild berry macarons, and gluten free cupcakes just to name a few. Make sure you try Frankie's famous Lemon Brûlée Tart if you want to treat yourself to something decadent. While you are munching on something sweet, share a pot of T2 tea with a pal.

Frankie's Place is also completely child friendly. In addition to the large menu catering to fussy children, there are also colouring books available.
