Frankie & Lola’s Front Street Cafe Restaurant Review

: Eclectic Frankie & Lolas won’t be for everyone, but beneath its funky appearance is a serious commitment to from-scratch fare crafted with classic techniques. Dishes include a fried green tomato Benedict, a "Nom Nom" omelet with mushrooms and sausage, a hearty tri tip chili, and a Reuben with house-made corned beef. For dessert, indulge in a slice of “Make Yo’ Mama Cry” pecan pie. Bottled premium beer is available, and the compact wine list showcases local favorites. This little gem offers a great view of Morro Rock, but seating inside and out can be hard to come by at peak meal times, so plan accordingly.
