On The Quays in Waterford city, a vibrant orange frontage announces BerFranks, Frank and Bernadette Treyvaud's lovely cafe and restaurant. Frank's impeccable training, and his many years experience in the restaurant business, ensure that BerFranks is always a special place to be.
This singular café and deli is one of those places that has a hearth feel to it: it draws you towards it, it draws you in, just as you are drawn to the warmth of the fire in the hearth. You want to sit there of a morning with Java Republic coffee and a bowl of Flahavan’s porridge. You want to meet a mate to share gossip and a toasted special at lunchtime. You want to have a quiet moment with a glass of white and some delicious Dunhill patés later in the day. Berfranks delivers all these hearth moments, and Bernadette and Frank do it with smiling grace, with winning nonchalance. Now that Waterford is coming out of its financial doldrums after the financial collapse, and asserting its special historical prominence and its culinary strengths, it's important to remember those heroic retailers who kept the city flame burning. Berfranks is one of those heroic destinations, an icon on the Quays.
