Brekkie @ Frankies at Forde

The suburb of Forde in Gungahlin (Canberra) is named after Frank Forde, who served as Australia's Prime Minister for just eight days in 1945. So it seems fitting that a cafe in Forde should be called Frankies! We tried out the breakfast menu at Frankies this morning and were not disappointed.

He had:

Frankies BIG brekky  eggs and bacon with mushrooms, chipolatas,
beans, spinach and a housemade potato rosti, and a long black

while she had:

Salmon eggs benedict with freshly made
Hollandaise served on rostis, and a flat white

YUMMO!! The food was delicious, portion sizes were good, and we both really enjoyed the potato rosti. Crispy, crunchy goodness. The rest of the brekkie menu is here.

Frankies has a different vibe to the usual places we go as Gungahlin has a younger population than the rest of Canberra so it was full of parents with kids. We are early risers and arrived just after 8 am, which was good as by 9 am the place was packed. We'll be back ... I suspect I'll crave the wonderful potato rosti between visits!

Yum, that looks great! My husband has recently discovered that sausages wrapped in rotis is about the best thing in the world .... good to see them being used here too!
