Little Frankie's, South Yarra

A couple of weeks ago, Tim and I went for lunch at Adriano Zumbo's newest establishment, Little Frankie's.  Little Frankie's is a tiny cafe attached to Fancy Nance, Adriano's high tea venue in South Yarra.  In fact, from our vantage point in Little Frankie's, we could watch all the ladies decked out in fancy clothes enjoying high tea.  The two venues are separated by this very colourful mural:

At Little Frankie's, you can eat in or take away.  There are pastries with an Italian spin:

and panini:

and some very tempting gelato:

Tim and I ate in.  I ordered this proscuitto panini with cherry tomatoes and buffalo mozarella:

The panini was like a big soft cushion, and the fresh ingredients on top made it a delight to eat.

For dessert, we indulged in gelato - for me, the banana and caramel swirl in a cone:

Little Frankie's also does a decent coffee:

Little Frankie's was quiet when we were there, especially compared with the noise and bustle coming from Fancy Nance next door.  We liked the calmer atmosphere, where we could talk without shouting and didn't have to wait to be served.

If you are in the South Yarra area, Little Frankie's is worth a visit - dare ya to resist the bombolini!
