Pretty in Pink: Miss Frank in Camberwell, Melbourne

Issue 82 · Australia by Design · July 24, 2013

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.
