34 & Franklin Pop-up Cafe

Miss Libertines, home of the quirky interior, cheap pizza and alternative night Can’t Say! is closing. So while the owners work on a new fit out a pop-up cafe has – true to its name – popped up to fill in the gaps.

34 & Franklin is a sky lit pop-up land situated in the back room of Miss L’s and has all the kitschy doilies, teacup sugar bowls and Astroturf you could ever wish for. I went with my pockets as Chingy as Howard Bailey Jnr. and found myself completely spoilt for choice with an array of eats under $10.

Filled bagels start from $4 (the Salmon, cream cheese, capers & Spanish onion one sounded rad at $6.50), homemade baked beans with toast soldiers go at $5, half baguettes are out the door at $6 and you might even be tempted by a selection of chilli dogs from $8. If I had any pull, I’d get Frank Walker to record an audio version of that impressive line-up.

I finished a big veggie dog ($9) so fast, enjoying the melting mess of not-dog, spicy bean & capsicum mix, grated cheese and cheesy white sauce. It was yummo, therefore so I know the beef chilli dog complete with chilli meat sauce will be even more satisfying to me next time. Double trouble in every bite, I can’t wait.

For a limited time only, 34&F is open 8am – 3pm for breakfast and lunch, then from 6pm it transforms into the ‘Late Night Kung Fu Hustle’ – an Asian hawker inspired menu complete with long neck Asian beers, Bruce Lee projections and a Street Fighter II arcade game. So good. Stay tuned for the next phase of Miss Libertines transformation.
