SquareMeal Review of Franks Canteen



Tucked between kebab shops, Franks’ simple, chic frontage screams at you to enter. Inside, there’s a cosy front-room feel to this daytime café, encouraged by genuinely welcoming staff. Come for great coffee, breakfast and brunch, from a menu featuring fry-up staples of bacon, sausages, beans and black pudding – plus the occasional globally inspired dish. Yes, we spotted sourdough, but there wasn’t an avocado in sight (though these are sometimes available). Nasi goreng with tender pulled pork (flavoured with soy and ginger), together with a glistening fried egg, put the sun into our Sunday. The oozing shakshuka is another favourite, served with tangy labneh, sunflower seeds, buckets of fresh coriander and chunky confit garlic bread. Plates cost around a tenner, but the warming bowls of home-cooked goodness keep you feeling full all day. Add the breakfast gelatos, staff that treat you like mates, and portions to make your grandma proud, and Franks has great claim to be Highbury’s prime brunch spot.
