Take your time here as owners Kieran and Joanna Jefferies have done a beautiful job with their fitout with some of the most clever parts are DIY. The back feature wall which leads out to a cosy dining room has been upholstered in preloved jeans patches.
The sewing was done by Kieran's mum using their old jeans and when they'd used up all they had, then more were purchased from op shops.
As you've probably guessed the name is in honour of French bull dogs. Kieran and Joanna have 3- Penny, Ella and Bin and their names are featured on the "doggie" menu. Too cute.
The amazing dog biscuits are made locally and have the Frenchies stamp embossed on them.
Given the popularity of dining with the fur children now a days there are even welcome packs of dog biscuits handed out to first time doggie visitors. Joanna is going through 300 of these biscuits a week!
The human food is also receiving great reviews and some of the "trial it and see" items have become best sellers.
Check out these incredible tables. They are custom made by resident artist next door Trevor Platt. Kieran and Joanna used copies of the iconic Wynnum Herald paper which was printed just blocks away for many many years. Trevor did the fantastic montage effect and sealed it with a very durable epoxy.
The back room is intimate and again features the great denim patch work on the chairs, as well as the beautiful reading nook.
More clever seating is provided down the walkway between tenancies.
And if you as crazy about french bull dogs as Joanna, there are more items you can purchase around this theme, including signed first edition print run of "The scariest dog on the street" by Bulimba author Joanna Golden. Of course it's a story about a French bull dog- her own in fact.
Frenchies is helping to breath fresh life into Wynnum and the crowds, especially on the weekend are showing they all agree.
