Excellent café for taking a break. Love the brunch especially the pancakes, bacon and maple syrup. Great with little children so always take the grandchildren knowing they will be welcome

Found this place on a Sunday morning. Opens at 08.00 am. Obviously very popular because there were reserved tags already on some tables. Good breakfasts at a reasonable price. Will be back.

Took my girlfriend and mother for lunch at Cafe 19. Gluten free options were essential and we were not disappointed. The chefs salad with prawns and avocado was superb. The Gluten free pizza base was a little under cooked/chewy. But the pizza overall was very tasty. The fish and chips were presented nicely and there was a very generous portion.... More

Booked a table for Saturday lunch for four. The cafe was busy and buzzy which is always a good sign. We all had the large Caesar salad, which was very generously portioned with a delicious home made Caesar dressing. A bottle of good value house red accompanied our meal. The service was cheerful and efficient. Lovely experience.

At the sea end of the main road that runs in to Frinton on Sea is this delightful cafe/restaurant. Seating something like 50 inside and 20 out so cosy rather than spacious but staff happy to move tables to accommodate. We had catch of the day, large Cod and Chips and it was one of the best we've ever had!... More

Cafe 19 is our favourite local haunt for Sunday lunch. Mothering Sunday was no exception! A free glass of Prosecco for mothers (and wicked step-mothers!), totally unexpected.Great menu selection. Excellent roast beef with beautifully cooked vegetables. Tasty banana and pecan pancake with ice cream provided a delicious dessert, all for £14.95 per person. Fast, friendly and efficient service. Not noisy... More
