“Don't be in a hurry”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2013

This is a great place for breakfast as long as you get there early!!! The service is good, but the food takes a while to prepare. Once it gets there, you will be impressed. Don't even think about taking little kids there...it is so small, they might get executed by the other patrons.

“Good food, takes time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2013 via mobile

The people are very nice, but everything runs on slow time. 1 1/2 hrs for breakfast. The carrot cake is outstanding. We enjoyed the pancakes & omelet. Whole wheat toast, store bought & soggy. 6 tables so you may have to wait for a place to sit.

“BEST Breakfast on the Island!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013

The pancakes with Blackberries were heaven, moist, light and big on flavor! Bacon was cooked to perfection, crispy! Everything is homemade with Frankie's special touch! Everything on the menu is FANTASTIC and made fresh! Even though this place is small, it turns out GREAT food and worth every bite!!

“Best Breakfast on the Island”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

Really good breakfast----which doesn't seem like a difficult task--apparently in Port A it is is.
How hard can it be to make a good breakfast? Frankie's puts every other breakfast place to shame. Its small (6 tables to be exact) but proves good things come in little packages.
Fantastic Eggs Benedict HOMEMADE hash browns cooked to perfection. And there's no time limit--you can order breakfast until they close.

“Breakfast was Wonderful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

The Eggs Benedict was very good. Small place only open on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday for breakfast and lunch. Great food and good service. Obviously a local favorite.
