About Café Frank

At Café Frank, our approach is to strip down traditional restaurant dining to offer something more honest. Our food is fresh, fast, simple, responsible and fuss-free. We offer canteen style dining – no waiters, no fancy bits, just good honest food and service in a sleek and beautiful café environment.

The menu is determined by the weather and what is good to eat now. Our meat is always organic or free-range and we source from independent specialist suppliers. We change things around to keep it interesting. We encourage you to look at the food on display and see what tickles your taste buds.

Open Monday to Saturday for
breakfast and lunch
Venue hire available
