Frequented Franks Cakes on numerous occasions only to be extremely poorly treated by the head Waitress Bianca. My understanding is after talking with other staff occasionally that she treats her staff poorly and this is the reason for the high turn over.After further investigation I have also discovered they are supplying mostly frozen food and product of an extremely poor quality.A close family friend of mine heard them screaming and swearing at staff last weekend too. I will never attend Franks Cakes again and make sure that how they treat their staff is passed on

We returned for lunch only to find the menu (and perhaps the ownership) had changed. The food was still very good, but the place was much quieter than on our last visit. Service was pleasant but less well-informed than previously. The cake display seems to be the same.

I've enjoyed quite a few good coffee's here, good selection of cakes. The breakfast menu is ok, but nothing special.

I had often ducked into Franks cakes to pick up the odd slice or cake, but this morning we finally decided to sit and have brunch.
Unfortunately despite it being not overcrowded the young lady at the counter said they were under staffed.
It meant we were to order at the counter instead of seated ordering, i gathered our own glasses and jug .
The waitress was doing her best to please everyone, and we didnt end up waiting too long for the meal.
I ordered eggs benedict with ham and my partner had Franks big breakfast.
The presentation was on point as was the taste.
This experience hasnt turned me off eating here again, im actually looking forward to the next time.
