Review: Frances Food and Coffee

Before hitting the Queen Victoria Market in Melbourne, we fuelled up at Frances Food & Coffee. This modern space, with inviting outdoor and indoor seating, sharp interior with soft pendant lighting and open kitchen, is a truly hidden gem, on a corner block along Franklin St.

We arrived in time for brunch and as we perused the menu, one of the staff came over and explained the coffee blend that they prefer to serve. They use Profile Coffee, a seasonal blend locally roasted in Footscray.  We ordered a Flat White – $3.50 the Milk#4 blend, and a Long Black – $3.70 the Black#4 blend. The blends were both versatile and gave a subtle bite to the palate.

For our brunch, we ordered the following:

Scrambled eggs with sautéed field mushrooms, Truffle oil and capsicum rouis on sourdough toast – $16. The sourdough toast formed the base, topped with the lightly browned and tender field mushrooms with the capsicum rouis, the eggs were velvety and soft.

Spanish sausage and grape omelette, with blood orange and radicchio salad –  $18. The omelette texture was light and fluffy, the slices of chorizo were not overpowering – just right, matched with the bold taste of the radicchio, fresh grapes and the citrus of the blood orange was a flavoursome match, all in all, both were stellar dishes!
