F’coffee is located in Matlock Bath, a popular seaside-esque village in the heart of Derbyshire where you can enjoy riverside walks with an ice cream, fun in the amusement arcades and good old fish & chips. Recently, a new attraction has arrived: a family-run coffee shop perched at the edge of the promenade.
F’coffee have built up a fantastic reputation based on their monstrous ‘freak shakes’. If you’re not familiar with them, they’re milkshakes usually served in a Kilner jar and topped with all kinds of crazy things like doughnuts, whipped cream, chocolate bars, cakes… the list goes on. F’coffee offers eight varieties with flavours such as ‘Absolutely Minted’, ‘Popscotch’ and ‘Peanut Butter Cup’, plus a changing monthly special. OK, so they’re not exactly sin-free but they make an amazing treat!
F’coffee also serves loose-leaf teas, fairtrade coffee, homemade cakes and lunchtime meals in the cosy, stylish cafe. It’s a great place to relax in and escape the hustle and bustle outside.
