Our visit to Miss Frank was very impromptu - I'd come home from the gym one Saturday morning feeling quite hungry and with not that much in the house. We had a quick look through Instagram hoping for some inspiration, and saw some particularly tempting pictures of Miss Frank on Daisy's feed. A Google search revealed that it wasn't too far, and that it was from the same owners of Espresso 3121. (An old favourite of mine from when I worked nearby). Decision made!
I didn't bring my camera (all these pics are from my iPhone), and wasn't planning on blogging it at all, but three things changed that:
- their espresso milkshake;
- fantastic chips; and
- a truly excellent bacon and egg panino!
Ok, let's look at the food and drinks! I totally loved my espresso milkshake - it had a shot of espresso (duh), milk, ice-cream and malt powder. A perfect pick-me-up for a hot day.
|Espresso milkshake - $6.00|
|Small chocolate milkshake - $4.30|
I wanted to go for something a bit healthy, and chose the ratatouille with parmesan-crumbed egg.
|Ratatouille - zucchini, eggplant & capsicum, with a parmesan crumbed egg, served with buttered toast - $14|
Sandra's choice, however, of a bacon and egg panino totally blew my ratatouille out of the water! (Apologies, I can't remember the exact price as it was just in the cabinet and not on the menu, but I think it was around the $10 mark).

|Steak chips served with house made garlic aioli - $7.50|
And we got chips too. They were fantastic: thick cut (woohoo!), freshly fried and crisp. Perfect!
We really enjoyed Miss Frank - food and drinks were great, and being located away from the major hipster cafe enclaves (I'm thinking Fitzroy, South Yarra, even St Kilda...) means they're pretty chillaxed and friendly. The day we visited they were pretty quiet, with mainly older couples or young families. I'd definitely recommend trying them out!
