Frankie is one of the new eateries at Hotham, located upstairs at the Big D, and they're already changing the paradigm by being the first place on the mountain to offer home delivery as well as takeaway.
The aesthetic is inner city café - the kind where you feel comfortable lingering over a perfect cup of coffee, because the people are so engaging and friendly that you don't want to leave any time soon.
Light and bright
Light and bright with wood paneling and chalkboards, it's your neighbourhood local and you can expect to meet familiar faces because it will be the go-to choice for many.
The menu is thoughtfully designed with both adults and kids in mind. Something quick, hot and filling for ravenous kids who've skied or boarded their hearts out, as well as delicious, gorgeous gourmet food that won't break the budget. Home cooked, rich flavours, and lovely presentation.
Hospitality runs in their veins
Lisa and Sarah are both long-time Hotham seasoners, and after a few years break are ecstatic to be back on the mountain. Growing up in hospitality venues both women have a love for providing quality service and food. Throughout the off season, Lisa runs a successful functions and weddings business, Event & Flavour, on the Mornington Peninsula. Sarah’s hospitality credentials including managing weddings and functions at the busy Portsea Hotel and Vines of Red Hill winery, also.
