Frank’s Coffee Shop and Restaurant from “Larry Crowne”

Jan 4th, 2012 | By | Category: Movie Locations

A few days before Christmas, while I was wallowing in a horrible head cold, the Grim Cheaper and I sat down to watch the 2011 flick Larry Crowne. Neither of us had very high hopes for the movie as it had received such horrible reviews, but I am very happy to report that we both ended up loving it.
