Located in the picturesque seaside town of Frinton-On-Sea, Emma’s Kitchen is ideally positioned just off Connaught Avenue on a sunny, sheltered suburban street. Emma’s Restaurant-Café serves delicious food including home baking, great breakfasts, lunch specials and offers outside catering.
The inspiration behind Emma’s Kitchen came from a real passion for good food and to offer an entire eating out experience with a warm welcome and a friendly smile from the open plan kitchen.
Although Emma trained as a chef at Colchester Institute her passion for food came from her Mum, her first mentor and best friend who taught her the basics of home cooking. Emma’s Mum was not afraid to reach beyond the norms when cooking with fresh ingredients and always looked to be different and diverse. The Kedgeree on the menu was a firm favourite of Emma’s when growing up and now evolved into one of the most popular dishes at Emma's Kitchen Cafe.
Emma’s Kitchen is a family affair with Emma’s daughter Laura effortlessly running the front of house and Emma’s Dad John, who can be bribed with a bowl of soup to tackle the endless washing up. Emma has transformed the menu to encompass a great breakfast and a varied lunch menu with daily specials All items on the menu are cooked in Emma’s Kitchen and Emma’s dedicates time sourcing all ingredients locally.
IMPORTANT: Since we opened earlier this year, the restaurant cafe and our outside catering service has been a runaway success and we are delighted to see our venture so popular with locals and visitors to Frinton. This has meant we have not had the resources to run the cookery workshops or the baking tuition classes. We hope we can restart the classes very soon.
