Meet The Kitchen

Located in the picturesque seaside town of Frinton-On-Sea, The Kitchen is ideally positioned just off Connaught Avenue on a sunny, sheltered suburban street. The Kitchen Restaurant-Café serves delicious food including home baking, great breakfasts, lunch specials and offers outside catering.

The inspiration behind The 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 The Kitchen. The 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 The Kitchen and Emma’s dedicates time sourcing all ingredients locally.

"The decoration at Emmas is simple and elegant. The food is extremely good and the service was second to none. Very pleased we took the time to go and visit....It certainly will not be our last. "

"Don't tell any one but this is the best restaurant in town. Foods superb. Ambience is understated chic, (& rarely disturbed by noisy trippers). Please keep it that way Emma. It's like fine dining at home without the effort of cooking. "
