Franco has got it going on in this busy street in OU for quite a while now, though some may have known it by its previous label, Miam Miam. We're sincerely glad Franco won the name battle ;) 

A quote on the restaurant wall here goes, 'happiness depends on a leisurely breakfast'. Oh yes! Toast served here is on a whole other level, and is the unabashed star of the Franco French Toast (RM16.80). Thick, fluffy, pillowy squares topped with a fat dollop of cream and drizzled in honey. 

The Squid Ink Rice (RM28.80) is clearly going to be heavily featured in our most beautiful food dreams. Tastes of the ocean, but in a beautifully metaphorical way. Briny, with juicy prawns and chewy squid. Rice is perfectly seasoned and gooey omelette seals the deal.

The pasta version, Squid Ink Pasta, with its tender squid rings and perfectly-cooked pasta tossed squid ink with a hint of wasabi, is a satisfying option as well. 

If tomato-based pasta's more your thing, give the flavourful Pescatora a try. 

Iced Matcha Latte seems like the natural drink to order here, and it's pretty darn good too, if you're okay to part with RM11.80 for a cuppa.

Be warned: the colourful desserts menu will effortlessly work its charm on you! We found it hard to say no to the adorably-layered Berry Cheesecake Parfait

But the real star here is undeniably the souffle. The Chocolate Souffle (RM19.80) effortlessly exceeded our expectations, as we polished off the fluffy-on-the-outside-gooey-on-the-inside dessert perfection in mere minutes. Sharing is NOT recommended!
