We were looking for somewhere to eat quite late in the afternoon and found cafe19. Service was excellent as well as food and all delivered by a lovely friendly waitress. Worth looking out for and won't cost you a fortune.

In Frinton today. Visited Cafe 19 for lunch. Had two hot chocolates that weren't, it took 40 minutes for two baguettes and a bacon sandwich. Which were lovely but that horrid damn muzak.....
