Frank’s Cafe Melbourne has a new summer menu complete with incredible crepes

Franks Melbourne crepe

Its interior gives you Japanese chicness, its exterior is trendy but inviting and its menu is as wide ranging and varied – and the desserts! – as the best of them. This is Franks Cafe – a Bayside suburban cafe that has taken the traditional and made it better, adding-in quality coffee, forward thinking food done well and a unique take on something for the sweet-toothed that needs to be tried to be believed. Complete with a new menu for summer, starting this month, Frank’s is stepping up the food game, rolling out their usual stunners like eggs Benedict with crispy pork belly and a chicken reuben sandwich that would make a Frenchman’s toes curl. In short, it’s good. Head chef Eli Faye has added eight new breakfast and lunch dishes to the menu alongside the incredible and not-too-sweet Violet Crumble Crepe. It’s a delicious honeycomb crepe is filled with light textured, rich-flavoured chocolate mousse, topped with vanilla bean ice-cream, fresh honeycomb and chocolate floss.  Yes, it’s every bit as amazing as you’d think and the best bit? It doesn’t leave you hating yourself afterwards. Eli models the menu around a simple philosophy of good food, good produce, Instagram worthiness and a happy feeling at the end of it that means you’ll be considering going back every weekend – or more. You can find Frank’s Melbourne at 97 Cavanagh Street, Cheltenham in southeast Melbourne. View this post on Instagram Suburban brunching realness ?

Frank’s in Cheltenham, Melbourne is causing a stir with their winter menu

Franks Melbourne

Frank’s in the little southeast Melburnian suburb of Cheltenham is local and little. But, big. And for good reason. Their photographable food is one thing, but it’s the composition of the whole thing, aesthetic of the whole joint and feel of the whole experience that has drawn people from far and wide and keeps them coming back. With their new menu for winter, they stay true to the cafe’s MO of being ‘frank’ with head chef Eli Faye drawing inspiration from a range of cafe style favourites that play on childhood sweet-tooth dreams. ? They’re all about the “Cherry Ripe” red velvet cre?pe, which comes complete with chocolate mousse, ice cream and cherry compote; which has fast become an instant favourite. It’s easy to see why they’re as popular as they are. ??? // ? @melbfoodbaby #franksmelbourne #cheltenhamslocal #melbournecafe A post shared by Frank’s (@franksmelbourne) on Aug 14, 2018 at 1:07am PDT They opened in 2016, and shook the local scene a bit with their no-nonsense approach to great coffee, great service and delicious interesting food. It has helped to ensure Frank’s is not only locals’ local, but also a reason for visitors to come by the sleepy southeastern suburb. Some other new dishes to their winter menu are Frank’s ?Porridge? of oats, apple & blackberry compote, gingerbread crumble, chai milk served on side; arancini, a new cafe favourite, including pumpkin and pine-nut arancini balls, a generous serving of goats curd, riddled with fennel and an orange & roquette salad; and a grain salad?, which… Read More
