In case you haven’t noticed, we’re swooning over Melbourne’s coffee bars this week. Our latest fixation? Miss Frank in Melbourne, which begs the question: Why are coffee bars so unrelentingly masculine in decor, as a rule? Not this one.

Named after owner Eamon Sheahan’s daughter, Francesca (who goes by the nickname Frank), Miss Frank is located in Camberwell, a suburb of Melbourne that until recently had little to no coffee bars to its name. Sheahan is a seasoned coffee connoisseur, having opened Volley and Espresso 3121. After designing the interior of the latter with the Hecker Guthrie team, Sheahan worked with them again on Miss Frank. For more information, visit Miss Frank on Facebook.

The other coffee bars in and around Melbourne we’re obsessed with? Take a look at A Coin Laundry Turned Cafe, Fast Espresso for Slowpokes, and this week’s post on Common Galaxia.
