Introducing: Lettuce B. Frank Wholefoods Café
by Amy Pozzar
Lettuce B. Frank celebrates wholefoods and organics with the most delicious menu, offering paleo, gluten free and vegetarian options. Wedged between Wollongong’s shopping centre and train station, Lettuce B. Frank is perfect for a morning coffee before work, a lunch stop between a spot of shopping, or a snack before your commute.
What’s their deal?
Basically, Lettuce B. Frank specialises in freshly made baked goods and foods. Wherever possible, their produce is locally sourced and organic, and all their products are made from scratch, including their sauces. As a bonus, their menu is constantly on rotation to ensure variety and quality seasonal produce. And it’s probably a no-brainer, but it should be mentioned that there are no artificial flavours, processed sugars or GMO’s in any of Lettuce B. Frank’s stuff, so… get munching!
Enjoy Lettuce B. Frank’s wholefoods and organic coffee al fresco in their cosy courtyard among small wooden tables and even smaller pot plants.
If the weather is unkind, you can devour your delicious food inside, where the courtyard theme continues. The decor is home and garden inspired, with an awesome light fixture styled out of tree branches, and wooden shelves lined with tea, more plants and other knick-knacks.
Lettuce B. Frank is open for breakfast, brunch and lunch (6am-4pm) and offers a huge range of wholefood meals and snacks to-go with options for everyone.
While their classic bircher muesli and avo on toast are always a satisfying breakfast, their buckwheat pancakes with ricotta, banana, berries and maple syrup just cannot be missed. If you prefer the savoury brekky, indulge in the poached eggs and haloumi, or just go all out and get the LBF Big Breakfast.
For a healthy yet hearty lunch, try the smoked salmon and roasted veggie layers drizzled with pesto. Better yet, for a full-blown flavour experience, their seared chicken breast with slaw and cashew on a bed of vermicelli noodles is your best bet.
Don’t forget to try their Fair-trade organic coffee, cold-pressed juices and energy-packed smoothies.
