Just like home. Very simple, very pleasant and cannot wait to go back when it's not raining and we can sit in the garden and have tea and scones. Owner also sells all my favorites ~ Maltessers, Crunchie, Branston Pickle. Yum!

My wife and I, who are from the Boston area, stopped in Frederick on our way to our daughter's house in VA just before Thanksgiving. We had heard wonderful reviews of the restaurant Volt so decided to stop there for lunch. It was, I think, Tuesday. Volt was closed and it was pouring. As we headed back to the car we noticed Cafe Anglais and decided to duck in there out of the rain. A good decision. We had shepherd's pie and Mushy peas and then scones and clotted cream. The atmosphere is very simple but the food was very good and to me that is what is most important. I write this now on 12/29/11 because by chance we purchased a Christmas Pudding for the road. Michael told us it would last till Christmas with no problem. I want to tell all that it was outstanding!! We learned that he made them to order but that he had a few extra which he could sell. I encourage anyone who wants to try a fantastic treat to call ahead and order one for next year. I'll do the same. Jim Chandler

What a wonderful experience. I have eaten here serval times and have enjoyed every visit. There is a lovely garden in the back for warm weather dining and the owner/chef is very friendly to chat with. The fare is British and I found it to be tasty. I have recommended this establishment to my friends.

Cafe Anglais is a treasure in downtown Frederick. If you want a traditional afternoon tea (complete with the assortment of sandwiches and sweets), call 24 hours in advance. If you just want to stop in, owner, chef, and British native Michael Harrison has a fantastic menu of delicious British classics for you to choose. Pies to pasties, shepherds pie to scones with clotted cream (imported from England) and jam. The scones are delightful - not too dry as some I've had, and the tea was typical British - perfect. Mr. Harrison took the time to chat with us, in his charming British accent, much to the delight of my elderly aunt who loves all things British. We did not get to experience the garden dining area, as our day was cold and dreary. So watch the weather, and I think you'll be in for a real treat.

Always a good choice! The quiche is very good. My favorite is the salad and gueyere. It's a salad with a cheese biscuit. Yum!! Oh, and the tea of course! Served in a china pot and cup too.

I have been here twice. I am from England and this place is 100% authentic. Just like home. A quaint tea room with all the old favourites. The owner used to have a similar establishment in Parkside, PA which I frequented many tomes before moving to Hanover, PA. I was so glad to see them move to Frederick. A real taste of Britian in beautiful downtown Frederick, MD

A lovely place with terrific, perfectly brewed tea, wonderful baked goods and warm and welcoming hosts. It's more than worth the 50-mile drive from DC to spend some time there.

This place is a pleasant little restaurant. Service was great. They even have mushy peas…yummy. Many places don’t give mushy peas with fish and chips. There is also a selection of British products that you can buy. If in doubt, try at this quaint restaurant and you will be pleased.

We were walking our Sheltie last summer and wanted refreshment. We came upon Cafe Anglais, where we were seated in a blooming garden. The tea was lovely, the food delicious. We've been back three times, sometimes with guests. We're coming again next week. Magic. Simply magic.

I used to go to this tea room when I lived in Frederick. Now everytime I come here to visit (every two or three months) Cafe Anglais is a must on my itinerary. Michael, the owner, is very friendly and takes the time to chat with you, serves VERY good food, all fresh, and is very reasonable with his prices. I am from England so it is nice to get a taste of home away from home, not an imitation. Definitely go here to eat if you want superior service all around, and great food.

Being a Canadian raised with "tea time" I find this to be a little bit of home. I'm so glad this is close to home and visit as often as I can. Try it; you'll love it!

Fantastic food, very authentic, great service, and very friendly owner. Couldn't have asked for more, well worth it. Check out the English candy too.

This is my favorite tearoom in Maryland. It's owned by an English person and offers tea and English food in a charming setting, free of pinkies-up pretension. My husband likes to come here, too, for a fix of shepherd's pie or sausage rolls, not to mention the scones!

I have been here many times. I love the food and the calmness of it all. I've introduced many to the tea room and they all love it, including kids and elderly and everyone between.

I enjoyed a wonderful lunch at the Cafe Anglais. Cordial service, plus a nice selection of European dishes await your visit. This address is one to remeber.

Not sure why this one is listed under French. It's very much trad. British. But it's great. Get the scone with clotted cream. A-mazing.

My family and I went here today and it was wonderful. The gentleman who owns the establishment took the time to talk to us, and the food and service, not to mention the atmosphere, were far superior to any restaurants I have been to in memory. It was a very comfortable environment.

The food was made fresh, and you could taste it; also, having your food served hot was nice: it seems everywhere else I have been to recently can't manage to keep their food above room temperature.\n
There are English items on the menu that you can't find anywhere else, really. And, very very reasonably priced.\n
If you have kids, don't worry. I thought that it might be difficult to eat with the kids in a nice tea room, but we were not made to feel uncomfortable at all.

I would highly recommend Cafe Anglais to anyone who asks. It is really worth a visit; and you won't be disappointed.

Though listed as a French restaurant, Cafe Anglais is actually a traditional British tea shop -- and it's great! Meat pies, fish and chips, bangers amd mash (sausages with mashed potatoes) and other typical pub grub, as well as scones with clotted cream (yum!), flakey pastries, delicious custard puddings, and of course -- perfectly brewed tea in a lovely china pot! Highly recommended.
