Little Frieda’s Café: Deansgrange’s Hidden Gem
October 24, 2018 (No Comments) by Amy Meegan

Although I work in Deansgrange, I’ll be the first to admit that it lacks the social life, dainty shops and picturesque scenery that other parts of Dublin boast. However, what Deansgrange does have is one of my all-time favourite cafés. Namely, Little Frieda’s. Breakfast, brunch or lunch – you’ll not be disappointed!

I discovered Little Frieda’s in early May but I believe is had been opened for the few months prior to that and I just hadn’t found it. Maybe this is because it is tucked away, just off Pottery Road, quietly nesting behind the car park of Lidl.

Food

Little Frieda’s is ideal if you’re looking for breakfast on the go, a casual brunch or a chilled out lunch.

Opening at 7.30am, I like to use Frieda’s as a place to catch up with friends before work. The coffee is beautiful, plant milk is available are you can benefit from using your loyalty card. Need I say more?

As well as delish coffee, homemade juice, kombucha and espresso tonic are available.

Although the menu appears small, Frieda’s have delicious, seasonal specials every day. You can check these out on their daily insta-story @littlefriedas. Working in Deansgrange Business Park, my workmates and I are fond of “Frieda Fridays” – yes we actually say “Frieda Friday?” Saucy Eggs are regularly ordered from the main menu whereas I tend to opt for the soup or salad of the day which has yet to disappoint. Gluten free bread is available for your sambos too.

If your eyes are bigger than your belly and you’ve ordered more than you can handle, LF’s are always happy to pop the leftovers in a doggy bag.

Service

The service in Frieda’s is always on point. When out for lunch during the working day, time is of the essence and quick service is of utmost importance, unless we’re intentionally delaying.

The staff are flawless, always greeting you with smiley friendly faces. They even gave me a Little Frieda’s sticker to brand my Keep Cup which was purchased in a well-known coffee chain. Humorous folk they are.

Décor  

Similar to the menu, a lot of thought has gone into the décor. I feel my words cannot do justice to the vibes in Frieda’s. Minimalistic but characteristic. Simple but trendy. Each rustic wooden table is carefully dressed with a small vase of fresh flowers from The Crate (www.thecrate.ie/). And speaking of tables, there is ample seating indoors and outdoors, ideal for couples or groups.

The chilled out ambiance makes it one of those places that you feel entirely comfortable sitting in for hours on end. It’s ideal for reading that book you’ve “been meaning to start,” taking time to work away from the office or simply just for sitting and enjoying the present moment.

When you walk in the door, you’ll notice a Polaroid photo wall on your left. This is goals. To get up here you need to be customer, squad or doggo of the week. If I could transport my floof from Monaghan he’d definitely be doggo of the week!

Pricing

Frieda’s prices are very reasonable for coffee and food. Coffee loyalty cards are better than most places – buy four, get your fifth free. In real terms, buy a coffee Monday to Thursday, get Friday’s coffee free – what a way to start the weekend. To do their bit from the environment, Frieda’s are promoting a paperless loyalty system, offer 30c discount when you bring your keep cup and their disposable cups, lids and straws are fully compostable. Honestly, they can do no wrong in my eyes.

But don’t take my word for it. Take a trip to the Deano and try it for yourself – Little Frieda’s, The Pottery, Dun Laoghaire Ind. Est., Pottery Road, Deansgrange, Co. Dublin. And…. Their sister café is opening in Blackrock very soon.
