Visited Cafe 19 after a nice day at the beach. Homemade delicious fish and chips, for starter both me and my sister had creamy mushrooms everything top quality. Young staff nice and friendly always with a smile. Not a big restaurant but very busy so better book in advance. Highly recommend.

I have recently been diagnosed as coeliac so eating out can be a bit difficult now but this place has a good range of gluten free options available

There is a distinct lack of places to eat in Frinton and as such this café is situated quite near the sea end of the High Street, which makes it a good spot for eating. The menu is extensive and well priced but a large proportion of the food has a cheese element, this creates problems for those with dairy... More

I loved visiting Cafe 19 - my wife and I really enjoyed our few trips there last week. My wife is coeliac, and the staff made a great deal of effort to ensure that my partner knew what she could eat and drink. The things that we did order were fantastic and we both thoroughly enjoyed the high quality products!

Cafe 19 is always busy in a really good way. It has a buzz and atmosphere which is perfect for any time of the day. Service is swift and friendly and the food always reliable and delicious.

Catch of the day, amazing fish and chips with peas, and generally all round good quality food. The only reason I haven't given 5 stars is down to the staff who were quite snappy, I noticed one being quite unhelpful with a foreign family who were struggling to understand the menu (rolling her eyes), service with more of a smile...

Went in for a late breakfast, they were very very busy as always. However no matter how busy, you always get a warm welcome, good food, in clean pleasant surroundings. Summertime brings out shall we say, the not so forgiving of people. But the staff here continue to provide the most welcoming service, and the nicest food. Always happy to... More
