Franks Eatery is our favourite local haunt. The staff are awesome, the food NEVER disappoints, and they are happy to have laptop workers do their thing whilst enjoying their great coffee. Well done Franks... a superb example of how a cafe should be.

Paid $28 for a tiny breakfast sandwich. Ordered the ‘Einstein’ with an extra egg and was expecting a substantial breakfast. What arrived was a pitiful sandwich and when I brought it to the cashier’s attention, she chuckled and said “A lot of people make that...mistake.”More

One of the best places to eat here. Abit pricey but Quality comes at a price and its worth the money.

We were so happy with our breakfasts and coffee today. Presentation and taste were on point. Lovely waitresses and timely service. Our little girl was given colouring in to do too! Thank you ☺️

After over 2.25 hours the 2 of us had received 4 drinks, and 2 starters. We were about to leave when our mains arrived. I had high hopes of this restaurant, but we were very disappointed. We will not be visiting again.

This has become a firm favorite Cafe with my friends the staff are all amazing, friendly and always willing to go the extra mile. And the food! I've just had the Coconut Mango smoothie bowl. Delicious. I can recommend almost anything on the menu I've...been here so often! The Birds Nest or open omelette are divine. If there was one thing I could suggest, that would be to have cheaper wine options for those on more of a budget although the wine list is very impressive!More

We had blue cod and salad thinking a nice bit of blue cod would be nice but what came out was some small pieces of fried blue cod with small bits of salad on tapa bread I think but wasn't very appetizing I'm sure there...are better things on the menu but this wasn't one of them. The staff was attentive and friendly but the food was just average you didn't know whether to pick it up or eat it with a knife and fork. They checked your vaccine pass on arrival which was great but wearing a mask was not enforced, most places and people in the south island are complacent with covid rules. I wouldn't eat here again..More

Dropped into Franks Eatery mid-afternoon for a quick snack but after seeing the menu decided to have a more substantial meal. Choosing the Israeli Bowl and the Sushi Bowl with vegan options. Not at all disappointed and worth the 20minute wait, we were told of...the wait prior to ordering. The Karaage Cauliflower was so good I got the recipe.More

Frank's Pantry consistently delivers to a very high level. I worked close by for a period so frequented Frank's for lunch. The food selection is healthy, well portioned and delish. Great atmosphere and service.
