Lovely place, tried their ciders, not being a cider drinker, and am now a convert to Frank’s Ciders. We also had breakfast here, delicious, lots of homemade foods. Very warm and welcoming.

A cosy restaurant with a generously sized delicious gluten free toasted sandwich made just for me. The family loved their meals too and we were able to do cider tasting for a small donation. Sat by a lovely fire too!

Description
Frank's Cider House & Cafe is located in the historic riverside town of Franklin in the beautiful Huon Valley. Just 40 minutes south of Hobart, it is open 7 days a week from 10 am - 5 pm. Enjoy free tastings of Frank's multi award winning fruit ciders, as you discover the history of the region in historic surroundings. The fresh produce of the Huon Valley is featured on the menu, with everything from cider cured salmon, to apple cider scones, available.
