I'm a retired photographer living in Lilydale mainly researching and writing on Australian aviation history. Now writing more on general subjects.

Hop into here for a frolicking good feed
Food outlets often have names that don't indicate what they are serving. The Frolicking Frog is one such place and they don't even have French-inspired food apart from chocolate éclairs. They are a bakery café.
Before you get to look at the pie menu behind the counter your eyes and stomach are drawn to the large display cabinet of almost every type of pastries, tarts, slices, and cakes, both small and large, imaginable.
The Frolicking Frog had been operating in Lilydale at the same location since 1980, and current owner Belinda, herself a pastry chef, has been operating there for six years. All their goodies are freshly baked on their premises.
Pastry Chef, Leslie, was very proud to show her creations before being displayed in the shop's refrigerated cabinet. The display cabinet also features readymade sandwiches and rolls for those in a hurry.
