Frederick’s Coffee House, Frederick Street

14 Jun

Frederick’s Coffee House

Score: 4/5

Best For: A relaxed break from shopping

Price: Cappuccino, £1.85; Tea, £1.85; Cake, £1.60 – £3.45

Much like spoon, it’s easy to miss this place due to its first floor location (above Blacks), but this place is worth a visit as it is bright and airy and an oasis of calm from the busy shops on Prince’s Street and George Street.  I spied it whilst waiting for a bus, and decided a visit was more interesting than a long wait in the cold.

They have clearly worked hard on the interior and it does look great.  There is a mix of seating with tables and chairs as well as sofas and comfy chairs.  I’d say my tea and cake were only really average, but they do have great coffee (thank you Anna for the tip!).

This café is certainly nicer than any of the near by chains, so if you are in the vicinity you should pop in.

    I love Fredericks. Coffee is their thing, it’s Artisan Roast (with the training have been delivered by the AR staff). Def worth another try!

    I agree with your comments about the decor and the peaceful atmosphere in Frederick’s, but I’m afraid I also agree about the quality – scones always seem a bit stale and dull, and my friend’s panini was definitely stale. I wonder if their turnover isn’t keeping up with their buying, so they are perhaps using old-ish stock? The waitresses are always very nice and friendly.
