Tenth cafe: Frankies Place. Frankies is a cute, Indie cafe’ on Darby Street run by cool, urban workers, primarily chicks with tattoos, piercings and parts of their heads shaved. My good friend Sez introduced me to this place so it’s only fair that I documented this hangout and cafe’ evaluation with her. She is a stunning, classy, Aussie skater girl full of wisdom, love and humor. She is one of our executive leaders at YWAM Newcastle. She leads our Youth department and is also leading the School of Innovative Youth Ministry in July. Books, tea, Vogue and beach hangouts are a few of her favs..bottom line is she’s insanely cool.
Coffee/Menu: I ordered a latte on skim and to be honest it wasn’t that great. The coffee has been a little bitter every time I’ve had it but the ‘latte art’ in the foam is always pretty. Sez had green tea that they brought out in a small white tea pot with a Sesame Street book as a tray. We only got drinks this time but the other times that I went with people we all ordered food and every time it’s been delish. Their french toast is seriously probably the best I’ve ever had and my husband was in love with their eggs benedict. Rating: 5 for coffee and 9 for food.
Ambiance: I am the queen of the run on sentence because I am a lazy writer and like to do things as quickly as possible, so I am going to make this next descriptive sentence the longest one ever. Frankies is unique, cute and cool, filled with lots of colors, tea pots, latte art, plants, stools, mismatched but still cute vintage furniture, simple menu’s with a cute and clean font, plushy pillows and a wall covered in colorful record covers. All of this combined with the urban staff and outdoor seating equals a really sweet place. Rating: 9
This concludes my opinion summary of this cafe’. Please note that this was only my personal first impression and I have only been there a few times.
