The Frog 'n' Toad Cafe

For all your catering needs
Once again on a Friday, I found myself looking for an early bird cafe open at the crack of dawn. This time I found myself in Milton and happened across the delightful Frog 'n' Toad cafe on Lang Parade, Auchenflower, located between the Wesley Hospital and Milton shopping centre.

For all your catering needs...

Considering the time of day and that they had obviously started work well before the 6am opening time, the staff were great, service was prompt and breakfast was cooked fresh before me as I waited. Despite only offering a 'counter service', I was told to take a seat outside and breakfast was promptly brought out to me pipping hot.

Well cooked and reasonably priced.

I always choose a meal that I consider is simple to cook and at this time in the morning I like to start my day with a full breakfast. This was no disappointment - eggs cooked to perfection, the toast lightly browned and the bacon lovely and crispy, just as I had requested. It surprising how often simple food can be badly cooked and I find that if the chef/cook can't fry an egg properly, then forget about the rest of the menu! As I said, however, at the Frog 'n' Toad, this was not to be the case.

At $9.50 for a full breakfast this was quite a bargain, as I'm sure that the same meal could easily cost twice as much elsewhere in Milton.

The cafe is also known for its classic sandwiches, French bakery rolls, business lunches, and platters.

Nice place to eat...

The cafe also sells papers and has shelving with a selection of small goods. It does not provide an inside seating area, but seating is provided in an lovely covered seating area. This felt quite Mediterranean with the planting around it and views of the park across the road.

Parking is found on 'on-street' with 2 and 4P parking available between 7am - 7pm.

Your Comment
I've been a long time customer of The Frog 'n' Toad - your review is right on the mark, check it out if you haven't people. Be warned though that they do get really busy at lunch time because of their food & service, longest wait I've had is about 5 minutes to be served. Not bad unless you are in a real rush.
