Streetside on the ground level of the Parkhaven building, Frank has both apartment dwellers and office workers for neighbours, resulting in a beautiful mix of homely and corporate feels.
Clean, polished and contemporary, there’s no doubt plenty of thought has been put into the swish design of this place. Get comfy on the olive green velvet booth seats, kick back with a cuppa on the leather couch, or sit al fresco in the little courtyard which captures a slice of the morning sun. From the gold cutlery to the smart retro water glasses, the speckled salt shakers to the pastel coloured serving bowls, small things add up to create a real vibe here.
If things in the cabinet look a little familiar, it’s probably due to the fact that Frank is a sibling café to Two Birds Eatery - and both are unmoving in their aim to provide nourishing, wholesome and damn tasty food that is as honest in its flavour as its presentation. Add a punch to your Glow Bowl, or homemade oat bread toastie lunch with a Raglan Roast coffee or glass of kombucha on tap, and if the raw slices catch your eye it’s probably worth taking one for a nibbly afternoon tea later too. If you’re needing to break bread at an event, Frank is more than happy to come to the party with it’s catering services - just take a look at their Instagram to see the huge, glorious platters and grazing tables they can create.
The name runs in the whanau, both a late family member and the newest arrival share the name Frank, and it ties in nicely with the ethos of offering honest, undisguised food that tastes as good as it makes you feel.
