The handsome khaki-green front of Fred and Ginger Coffee stands on Kings Langley’s high street. It's illuminated by filament bulbs and cheery faces and abuzz with enthusiasm for great coffee. Speciality coffee is from local roastery, Campbell & Syme.
It’s a popular local haunt and it’s easy to see why: the space is bright and welcoming – with modern, minimalist décor and soothing palms – and the food is delicious a nd made right here in the kitchen.
Whether you’re after an expertly-made flat white, a delicious brownie or a generous gourmet sandwich, you won’t be disappointed. Vegan options such as banana and pecan loaf stand alongside golden sage and onion pork sausage rolls. Soups change daily in winter and there’s always a sea of colourful salads. When the sun is shining sit at the large tables outside to watch the world go by.
Juices freshly squeezed on site and oat milk chai lattes will pep you up for the onward journey. Parking outside is free for an hour.
