Who We Are

FRed’s was born for the love of cake, fresh good quality food and fabulous coffee! We named it after Fred, a food loving, coffee drinking Yorkshireman who’s knocking 90 – and who also happens to be my Dad. 

Our menu has grown over the last four of years and so have we! Our place in SE4 did so well winning several awards such as TIMEOUT magazine and Lewisham’s ‘Mayor’s Best new Business’ award, we decided to open in E7 – Forest Gate, situated in Woodgrange Piazza, just opposite the station.

All our pastries are baked in house fresh every day, our food is made from scratch or sourced locally with premium meats, free range farm eggs, fresh seasonally selected fruit and vegetables – all provided by suppliers who share the same values as we do! Simple, sustainable, inspired, tasty and never pretentious! 

We always have plenty of healthy options, gluten free, vegetarian and vegan choices. 

We adoringly serve ALLPRESS coffee, which makes FRed’s even more special for coffee lovers! Their obsession with flavour saw a switch from being New Zealand’s first coffee cart, to roasting coffee in the back of a garage and supplying it to cafés initially in and around Auckland City. They now supply over 1000 independent café’s around the world, and FRed’s are lucky enough to be one of their carefully selected partners. 

Whichever shop you come to visit, we work hard to present a warm, pleasing, family friendly, place for work or play and importantly a hub for our local community to gather.

Finally, we look forward to welcoming you soon, and hope that you too, become a FRed’s regular, if you’re not already! Oh, and don’t forget to get/stamp your lovely loyalty card too!

Gregg, Alain and the FRed’s family
