Good for Summer Outdoor Meals or Coffee

Good but not very inspired food. A good place to eat with the family in the daytime. The outdoor terrace is lovely in the summer, especially for a cooffee and people watching.

It appears that this is the sort of place which to the regulars is their 'Cheers' bar. Whenever I have visited their is a lovely atmosphere with conversation and banter between the staff and customers and customer to customer. They do seem to know your name. The food has always been good and it is rarely quiet, not noisy but... More

I live locally and cannot recommend Cafe 19 enough. Whether it be for breakfast, lunch, or tea, or even a quick catch up over coffee, I've always found all workers to be extremely polite and lovely to speak to. Highly recommended.

Today was our first ever visit to Fritton as we have only recently moved to Essex. After a day on the beach, we went to find somewhere for our evening meal and chose Cafe 19 as it was just about the first that we came too and I liked the fact that it had indoor and outdoor seating. I can... More

Went to Cafe 19 yesterday with friends. Asked for American and was given filter coffee but told that was the same thing. Manageress was extremely surly and unhelpful when asked if we could split bill. Will not be going back.

Used to go here a lot for breakfast, unfortunately the staff aren't as polite or friendly as the used to be and the breakfasts vary so much between days that you're never quite sure what you'll get!! Very disappointing!
