Our story…

The Frond Cafe is a contemporary seasonal eatery located in the leafy suburb of New Farm in a cozy space just a skip away from the hustle and bustle of Brunswick Street, opened in September 2018.

Drawing from nature and the park surrounds ‘The Frond’ is a place to relax with family and friends. The word ‘frond’ literally means “a large leaf divided into two halves”. This has been used in all aspects of cafe design but is best reflected in the indoor/outdoor areas of the cafe.

Husband and wife team, Hadeel, a chemical engineer, and Anders Doehler, a medical physicist, designed and built The Frond Cafe together. Hadeel’s beautiful understanding of interior design is clearly evident when looking at the soft pastels of pink and green with washed out whites and timber tones dabbled throughout. The Frond operates as a dual space; a cafe by day, a functions dream by night.
