With 33 years’ experience between them, chef/owner Jamie Bowman and co-chef Jacqueline Connon are fuelling Frankston with tasty, vibrant meals from their café that oozes personality with its signature pink décor.
Please describe your menu selections.
We try to cater for everyone with a selection of breakfast and lunch-focused items. You’ll find everything, from homemade baked beans and speculaas french toast to our new brisket and kim chi roll.
What’s the most popular item on your menu?
We just added a pancake and panna cotta dish, which features a pink velvet pancake and Commonfolk coffee panna cotta. This has been a big hit with our customers.
Please tell us a little about your professional background.
We have been working alongside each other for almost 10 years from a restaurant in Mount Eliza to another in Frankston. Over that time we have developed a great working relationship and are loving the freedom of finally being in control of our own kitchen.
What do your customers like about your menu/venue?
Our customers like the value for money and quality produce, our freshly baked cakes and sweet treats and the inviting atmosphere, friendly staff and of course our pretty pink décor.
What do you love most about what you do?
Having lived in the neighbourhood for years, we love that we have been able to provide the Karingal area with great coffee and quality food that is just around the corner. We just wish someone did it first so we could enjoy it too.
