Friendly, hip neighbourhood coffee shop. Heaving on a weekend. They take their coffee seriously here, but are never po-faced. The food is exceptional, the lunch menu is very much its own thing, and the baked goods are ruinously good. 

Annoyingly, most of the reviews/ratings on here aren't even for Esters - there was another cafe on these premises which closed almost two years ago. Anything pre-2014 is for the other place.

Best coffee in Stoke Newington by a long way, plus a creative and original range of brunch dishes (there's usually French toast with seasonal fruit and it's amazing!)


food is good but coffee is a thimble full in a small glass, frequently lukewarm to cold and their prices are completely disgusting. very very overpriced, avoid


This is without doubt the most chaotic coffee shop in north east London. There are more staff than customers yet I frequently wait for as long as 30 minutes for my coffee to arrive. When it does, it is rarely with an apology or explanation and often cold. The owners find it impossible to manage the number of people who arrive on their premises and frequently ignore them rather than address problems of seating. A coffee at Fred and Fran is sure to get your weekend off to a foul start. It's a Shane, because it had such potential. Unfortunately I think it's going the same way as the a lemon Monkey - first arrogance followed by administration.
