Why are you writing about Frenchies Cafe?

Located in the heart of Moreton Bay, Frenchies Cafe in Wynnum is as dog-friendly as they get, with a menu specifically for spoilt pooches! It is for this reason (amongst many others) that Frenchies Cafe is one of Eddy and my favourite places to visit. Kevin Liepins from WeekendNotes wrote a great review on Frenchies Cafe in 2014, but I love this cafe so much I just had to break my personal vow to not produce article duplicates.




Are they actually dog-friendly, or just dog tolerant?

Most definitely the former! Frenchies Cafe is a paradise for both pooches and dog lovers alike. Canine patrons at Frenchies are treated like royalty - even though there are communal water bowls available, each dog also has their own personal water bowl, in addition to their own mat. Your dog can literally lie at your feet in style and comfort.

Spoilt Eddy!


They even have a doggy wall of fame here, comprising polaroid photos of the canine patrons that frequent Frenchies. Each photo also has the pooch's name and date of birth on them. Eddy made it to the wall on our second visit - he's famous!

Do you see yourself, Eddy?



How did Frenchies decorate their cafe?

There is dog decor in every nook and cranny of Frenchies. Keep your eyes peeled! From little figurines (and some not so little ones), to pillows, you won't be able to escape the dog life, no matter which area you are seated in. There are even dog themed products for sale. The items for sale are mostly French Bulldog themed (as per the name of the cafe), but there are also other breeds of dogs too, including my favourite breed - pugs!

Okay, enough about dogs - how's the food and drink at Frenchies?

Frenchies have an extensive 'all-day menu', which is great because you can have lunch for breakfast, or breakfast for lunch - they're open from 5am to 5pm every day. Alternatively, I guess you could eat like a 'normal' person and eat the correct meal at the correct time of the day. But where's the fun in that?

And of course, a drinks menu.


Being a dog themed cafe, Frenchies of course has named some of their menu items after breeds of dogs, including "The Whippet", "Staffy's Smashed Avo", "The Great Dane" and "Schnauzer's Shakshuka". These all sound lovely, but being the pug lover that I am (in case you hadn't already noticed), I of course had to opt for "Puggy's Pulled Pork Burger" - slow cooked pulled pork, packed in a toasted brioche bun with homemade coleslaw. Yum! We also ordered the Frenchie French Toast - thick cut french cafe loaf, dipped in cinnamon sugar and served with seasonal fruits and maple syrup. Double yum!

Alright, I'm sold - but what if my pooch gets hungry?

That will never be an issue here, because Frenchies has a "Woofers menu" - or in other words, a menu specifically for dogs! From woofachinos to pancakes, to scrambled eggs and fried rice, your pooch will be spoilt for choice here.

Woofers menu.


Despite Eddy being a relatively little dog, it was too hard to choose just one or two dishes to fill him up - I ended up ordering 4 items because in addition to sounding delicious, prices were also very attractive - the most expensive item, the Frenchie Fried Rice, was only $5.00. We went for the 'Woofachino' (lactose-free milk, frothed up with cool water), 'Ella-licious Pancakes (we chose chicken flavoured homemade pancakes from chicken, fish, or beef), 'Penny-nolta Eggs' (free range scrambled eggs), and Frenchie Fried Rice.

Lucky Eddy couldn't wait to dig in!

Enjoying his Woofachino


Of course, having ordered 4 items, Eddy was unable to finish his food. Frenchies Cafe was kind enough to provide us with a container and (extremely cute) paper bag so that we could take the rest of Eddy's meal home, for him to enjoy at a later time.

Thanks Frenchies!



How are the seating arrangements at Frenchies Cafe?

There are plenty of seating options at Frenchies, both indoor and outdoor. We opted to sit outside, not just because we had a dog with us, but because it was nice to eat breakfast while enjoying the nice breeze that you feel only in places by the seaside!
