Went here last few years ago when i was over from holland to visit family. This time i was over i visited again for something to eat at lunchtime with the wife and son.

Like last time. Great food, great value for money and proper filled baguettes along with great and friendly service from the employees.
(Also it's a better and healthier choice against mcdonalds or other fast food!!)

Big thumbs up from me �

I always pop in on the way to the Redjet. Lovely coffee and tea and killer bagels (avacado and crispy bacon is my favourite). On treat day the honeycomb tiffin is also a must! More...

Brilliant service, lovely smiling faces, great food. The owner of the place seemed to be questioning a lot of their team, when he should just leave them to crack on with the excellent work they're doing, but otherwise it was a really lovely visit. Will definitely be back!

If there's one place you need to visit on the Isle of Wight make sure it's this place. Food is outstanding, service is top notch, prices are extremely fair, and you certainly do get what you pay for.
Can't wait to come back

Popped into the Newport store today for one of my absolute favourite things, a hot chocolate, they definitely make the best ones. I turned to go upstairs and everything slipped off my tray and crashed to the floor right by the till. With customer service it isn't just about how you make or serve the food but how you are with people. The lady was an absolute superstar and insisted I didn't help and they would make it all fresh. But most importantly, it was lunchtime and they were heaving with customers and there wasn't so much as a raised eyebrow. What utter professionals. It made me want to write it down and say thankyou.

Situated on the corner of St Thomas Square French Franks is a very popular cafe, they offer a very good selection of sandwich,panini,wrap and bagel fillings, as well as cakes,teas and coffee and the usual fare.The staff are very friendly and the cafe has a fresh clean modern feel. So if you are in Ryde it's worth paying French Franks a visit. More...

28 June 2016

The cheerie staff at French Frank's have always made me excellent coffees and baguettes so stuffed with ingredients as to satisfy intensely.The decor is sparse but enables the primary business (takeaway lunch) and finding a seat is rarely difficult with all the seating upstairs.The East-sider as a baguette is sublime (salt beef, dill pickle and mustard-mayo) and the Zorba is one of the best paninis I've ever had.Get in early if you want the daily special because the lines get long and they don't last.My one and only criticism is that the coffee machine being at the end of the counter farthest from the window. It looks as though it can be opened up and, were the coffee machine placed along the counter it would be possible to get coffee and cake at lunch without queuing in the food queue. More...
