Francis Coffee

What’s in a name? Plenty, apparently for artist and café owner, Gerrick Numan. His newly opened Franklin Street café, Francis Coffee is named and inspired by artist, Francis Bacon.

“I kind of approached it like I would a painting,” Numan says. Exposed concrete pillars and a sleek fit-out are splashed with his own vibrant artworks.

Similarly the well-balanced menu boasts local fare including Villa Verde free range eggs, Myrtleford butter and Noisette sourdough, with cleverly devised hot dishes and daily open sandwiches.

Breakfast is poached eggs with polenta, roasted mushrooms, sweetcorn puree and black olive tapenade – a sensational combination of flavours (only just winning out over maple glazed thick cut bacon and lemon pikelets).

Chilled tunes hum through the trendy nook – where the brews aren’t limited to coffee. Chamellia Organic teas and freshly squeezed Market Juice are also on offer, with a selection of local wines, ciders and beers for your ‘long lunch’.

Fast becoming a hub for local designers, artists and students, Francis Coffee is a sweet spot to kick back with a cuppa.
