In my last job, I worked a couple of blocks from a wonderful little coffee shop called Cafe Frei, which I visited a few times with colleagues. Cafe Frei have a huge selection of coffees and other hot drinks, and they pride themselves in their knowledge of their products and where in the world the different products come from, and visitors can read about these in books provided in the cafe. Cafe Frei also have several cafes around the world (Hungary, Austria, Dubai, France, and Romania). Their hot chocolate is really delicious and amongst the best that I have had in London.


I'm not a coffee-drinker, but I do drink hot chocolate, and over the past four months, I have tried most of the hot chocolates on offer except the white chocolate ones. Caramel hot chocolate, Belgian hot chocolate, Mexican spicy hot chocolate, and Coconut hot chocolate were some of the selections on offer. My favourite ended up being the Coconut hot chocolate.


Cakes, pastries, and other sweet treats are also for sale, and they also come from different parts of the globe. I've tried the lemon tart, raspberry tart, poppyseed cake, and chocolate pot. 


My favourite was the poppyseed cake, which is a traditional cake from Afghanistan, according to the cafe.


If you are in the area, I thoroughly recommend a visit to Cafe Frei, which is located just off the beaten path near Aldgate East station. During the week, they are open from 8:00am and close between 5:30 and 7:00. At the weekends, they open from 9:30 and close at 6:00. The cafe is located at 61A Alie Street, E1 8EB.
