In the heart of Shimokitazawa you’ll find Frankie Melbourne Espresso, a tiny slice of Australia in Tokyo. Serving some seriously amazing coffee and delicious breakfast dishes, we’ve found another new favorite! We tried both the poached eggs with smashed avocado and bacon, along with the spicy chorizo shakshouka.
A couple of coffees later we chose the banana bread for sweets, from a menu that also includes Australian treats such as chocolate dipped Anzac biscuits, lemon slice and hedgehog. The tiny space includes some small tables, against a background of black pegboard and subway tile. We’ll be back!
