Popped into Frolic on Saturday afternoon for a coffee as the kids played with their Dad on the playground across the road at Cornwall Park. The staff were all busy doing the afternoon tidy up and no-one noticed me even thou it was only shortly after 3, and I believe they close at 4. However, once I got someones attention they were very friendly and the takeaway coffee was very good. I noticed on their loyalty cards that they are somehow related to Cafe Melba in Takapuna, and the coffee was quite similar.
I no longer have young children, but when I visit Frolic I notice that there is a large child-friendly area out the back.
Frolic is my local cafe so I go there often - sometimes to have a meeting with clients and other times after a walk around Cornwall Park.
My house has been inundated with flies this summer - they are really hard to get rid of. But I haven't been bothered by flies at Frolic.
The previous owner (Nigel) had great food for all and I have not tried the new owners selection.
However the coffee is good and the service is excellent.
Popped into Frolic Cafe for lunch having heard this was a good child friendly cafe. Whilst they do have a box of toys for children and sell gingerbread men, we were disappointed with the overall experience. There was a real lack of food for kids and the selection of counter food for those wanting a quick visit was also lacking. My Turkish bread sandwich was tough with a soggy inside and hard to eat, but the coffee was okay. Our preschooler didn't like any of the options on offer so settled for a gingerbread man and the emergency crackers in my bag. There were also flies inside which were annoying to say the least. Sorry, Frolic just didn't meet my expectations.
this is a great local spot for breakfast/ coffee etc, especially if you have kids as they have a good space at the back that contains the toddlers with toys! and you can pop over when you're finished to the playground at Cornwall Park!
