Frangelicas – Kosher Patisserie & Cafe

Frangelicas is Glenhazel’s favourite family-friendly patisserie and cafe. Their cheesecake is world class, making it well worth your while to pay them a visit. Whether it’s for a Sunday brunch, family birthday or catch up with friends, Frangelicas is the perfect place to indulge in life’s sweeter joys. 


Frangelicas motto is simple: Happiness can be measured in cupcakes and coffee cups. One of the oldest and best loved Kosher patisseries and cafes in Glenhazel, this hidden gem is a must-visit for cake lovers and sweet tooths. Run by a husband and wife duo for the past seven years, Frangelicas is a neighbourhood hub. With their delicious Kosher breakfasts, lunches and desserts, they offer the surrounding community a place to escape and enjoy the sweeter side of life. Catering for family functions and special holidays, the cafe is also a great party venue. They welcome diners of all kinds, so be sure to stop by on your next trip through Glenhazel.


Pastry Delights

Have a hankering for a deliciously moist slice of chocolate cake? Or, in need of a custom birthday cake? Frangelicas is the patisserie for you. Their catering menu includes a number of delectable cake options. From apple struddle with cranberries, to Bar One cake and chocolate mousse cake, there is sure to be something to tantilise your taste buds. However, what this bakery is really known for is their award-winning cheesecake. Frangelicas famous original cheesecake is smooth, tangy and rich. But, if you are looking for something a little more decadent, we recommend the baklava cheesecake. Dripping with sweet syrup and covered in chopped almonds – yummy!

The bakery also makes delicious breads like traditional Challah, available most Fridays. Their teatime classics such as muffins, scones and cupcakes are customer favourites. We like the sound of mini cheesecake muffins with a pot of piping hot Ceylon tea. Shared with friends or family, this would be the perfect way to unwind after a busy week.

Frangelicas makes their pastry delights using milk, Parev or Chalav Yisrael ingredients. Their first priority is to please you, their customer. So, if you have any special requirements, simply let them know when placing your order.

Savoury Treats

Frangelicas isn’t only all about the sweets. Their savoury cafe menu also boasts an impressive selection of tempting breakfasts, light meals and mains. An eclectic mix of European cuisine influences, the savoury menu offers an assortment of toasted sandwiches, tramezzinis, pizza, pasta and salads.


Frangelicas should be next on your breakfast restaurants bucket list. Not because their breakfasts are unlike the standard cafè fare, but because of their welcoming atmosphere and generosity. If you have been searching for a family-friendly restaurant environment, here it is. Try their Breakfast Tower – freshly toasted Italian bread topped with a mountain of sauté spinach, scrambled egg, mushrooms and haloumi cheese. Add a serving of avocado or super smoky kippers to the dish for an extra taste dimension.

Lunch & Dinner

Lunch and dinner are sorted at Frangelicas, too. Their assortment of sandwiches is a lunchtime dream. From plain and simple cheese and tomato, to smoked salmon and cream cheese, their sarmies are the perfect light snack. If you want something a little more substantial, try out one of their four pizza options – classic Margarita, Hawaiian, Caprese or Vegetarian.

The cafè now also stays open after dark on Thursday and Sunday nights. Bring the family along for dinner on their breezy outdoor deck under the fairy lights. Or, stay warm and toasty inside the cafè next to their central fireplace. Frangelicas pastas make a wonderful, hearty meal and would be perfect on a chilly night out. The butternut cannelloni sounds like a winner to us. Alternatively, opt for a baked potato main, smothered in either creamy mushroom sauce, spinach and feta or Napolitana sauce and cheddar cheese. For the super health conscious there are a variety of tasty salads to choose from. Whatever you choose to dine on at Frangelicas, it is sure to be prepared with love and care.
