Frankie the cook and her husband joe serve up a wide array of dishes prepared that day with the daily catch of fish crab and shrimp. Nothing is ever frozen. The desserts are home favorites that change like banana pudding. Cobblers and pies. Home cooking at its best. Waitress Joanie will keep ur tea glass filled. Expect a wait as the place is small but well worth it. Inexpensive and delicious . Lots of locals eat here and many regulars. Ask joe where to fish, hotspots and local events. Down to earth lovely people.

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.

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.

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!!

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.
