My name is Genevieve and I like coffee.

Frank's Cakes, an Italian Pasticceria on the corner of Scoresby Road and Ferntree Gully Road isn't bad for it.

Cakes and biscuits galore!

As the name suggests, they also have an impressive array of cakes, biscuits, pastries, gelato flavours and strange types of bread. I was also pretty stunned by the 5kg jars of Nutella they had up for sale and then flabbergasted by the price of them ($80, but to be fair, they are imported from Italy).

You can also get breakfast and lunch here, or buy platters for functions.

Things I don't like about Frank's Cakes:
They don't wait on you. Even if you want to dine-in, you have to go up to the counter to order before sitting down. Worse, there's often a queue to order, and the tables, like the car spots, fill up fast.

Probably lovely on a nice day!

Things I do like about Frank's Cakes:
This place has so much to try, I bet you could sample something different every week for a year. Best of all, you get a free chocolate with your coffee, and they're always delicious!
