Every Thursday we have lunch with friends at one of many fine restaurants along Frankfort Avenue. Lots of variety and good food. Great way to enjoy local cuisine.

This was a really neat street with a lot of different restaurants and shops to explore. I went on a Sunday so a lot of the places were closed. I'm interested to visit again on a busier day.

I live seven houses down from Frankfort Ave and never get tired of walking it or shopping along it. We love Ramiro's Cantina and Margaret's Consignment Shop among other things.

Great food and even better people watching. Sip a coffee and have a bite at a sidewalk table and enjoy a sunny day.

Very neat shops and restaurants. We enjoyed going into the music store and talking with Vick. If it's a nice day, take the time to walk the street!

I was born and raised on Frankfort Ave and it is so wonderful to see what it has become! This is a wonderful place to call home! All of the local shops and restaurants combines with a wide variety of people make a fabulous place to live or just visit.

Great place to shop local with lots of variety. Clothing, gifts, skin care, bookstores, wine and spirit, etc etc. Also a great place to dine at one of kind local restaurants. Frankfort Avenue is casual but classy. FAT Friday every final Friday of the month is totally free to attend and offers music, dining, and shopping specials with special entertainment... More
