Friends’ Avenue Café

Stylish, relaxed spot at which to kick back and enjoy a catch up

Time Out Says

Aptly self-described as a “neighbourhood gathering spot”, Friends’ Avenue’s bright interiors are bathed in natural sunlight. There are two versions of this popular café chain – the JLT original and a newer one in Motor City.

Don’t miss The Big Brekkie Board – as that’s exactly what you’ll get. The well-presented, rustic meal is comprised of breakfast favourites in decent portions. The feta with sumac and zaatar adds much-needed sourness to the poached eggs, while the sautéed thyme mushrooms lend an earthy flavour.

There’s also red pepper hummus, asparagus, seared cherry tomatoes, and rye toast – it’s an all-round, all-day winner.

And at Friends’ Avenue’s new Motor City, you can try dishes from its new project, the Melt Burger Company. The Flying Chicken Burger is perfectly seasoned and golden-fried, sandwiched between a fluffy bun and smothered in American cheese, special sauce, house coleslaw – the works. Truffle fries are crispy and delicious, with Parmesan shavings dancing like cheesy confetti on top.

They’re an ideal treat.

The friendly service, good prices and community vibes are reason enough to visit either branch of this buzzing coffee shop.
