Who we are

Well, it’s a long story, but Fred’s a Yorkshireman in his late 80’s, set in his ways and he likes cake!  In his honour, we opened Fred’s, which still is a family and friends endeavor. Fred’s was born for the love of cake and good coffee. Obviously, our menu has grown over the last couple of years and so have we! We still serve our wonderful cakes, our delicious flat bread sandwiches and importantly - award winning Allpress coffee, which makes Fred’s even more special for coffee lover purveyors! All our pastries are baked in house fresh every day, our food is made from scratch or sourced from local suppliers, seasonally selected, who share the same values as we do! Simple, sustainable, inspired, tasty and never pretentious! The support we received from the local community when we opened was overwhelming and still is and we have firmly become a favorite for many in and around our Brockley shop. In the two years we have been there, we have won several awards and accreditations, including the Mayor of Lewisham ‘Best new business award’ and Time Out’s ‘best breakfast and brunch’ for our area. We have now opened over in Forest Gate and already become the hub of the community there, so thank you to all our customers South and East! We’re excited about that because of your support we can expand the brand, but not compromise on customer service and fabulous food and drink.
