Soichi and I were both looking forward to visiting Frankie Melbourne Espresso, a little piece of Melbourne in the heart of Shimokitazawa, a favourite downtown area of ours in Tokyo. A very quick walk from the South Exit of the station is where we found Frankie.
We were happily greeted by a friendly Japanese barista, who made us two delicious cups of flat white coffees. Treats loved by Aussies are a part of the menu at Frankie, which include banana bread, lamington cakes, hedgehog slices and focaccia’s.
The interior of the cafe is very cozy and seats only a few people, but definitely gives off the feel of a little cafe in Melbourne’s iconic laneways.
We will definitely be visiting again soon, as there are more delicious drinks and sweets we are looking forward to trying!
