Freddo on the Green: "“Best coffee in Ealing”? I’m not so sure ..." Top 5 Page for this destination Ealing Restaurant Tip by toonsarah
Ealing Restaurants: 26 reviews and 30 photos
There are plenty of places to have coffee in Ealing but it seems there is still always room for one more. And when a new one appears, we like to try it! This one is very handy for the station and is doing a lot of the right things, but for me it doesn’t quite yet live up to its own claims.
The attractive counter, with eye-catching goodies (big muffins, fresh baguettes, various pastries) = great.
Lack of comfortable seating = not so good.
Free wifi = yes.
Scruffy decor = more careless looking than studied trendiness.
Interesting photo exhibition gracing the walls = spot on, as is the community notice-board and the generous supply of newspapers.
But the biggest let-down for me was the coffee. They claim it’s the best in Ealing and a friend of ours agrees, so maybe it’s just a matter of taste, but my skinny cappuccino with extra shot, though it looked good, was far too milky for me. On the plus side, again, the accompanying pain aux raisins was good and the service friendly. I would give the place another chance if I was looking for coffee near the station, but wouldn’t go out of my way – and I’ll have an espresso next time!
