Claudio and Emily opened Federal in 2014 and have ended up creating a community of like-minded souls who are passionate about great coffee and amazing brunch. The culture is what sets them apart from the crowd.

Claudio was born in Portugal, and has extensive management experience, having run several successful hotels across the UK Northwest. Emily, from Northern England, has a knack for hospitality and creativity, being the driving force behind Federal’s online content.

They have created a little slice of Antipodean happiness in the heart of the city, and are keen to share this authentic, enjoyable experience with anyone and everyone who walks through their doors.

Come rain or shine they offer the sunniest welcome!

Federal Cafe make everything they possibly can on the premises using the best ingredients which are checked daily for freshness & quality. These ingredients are all sourced from sustainable independent local suppliers (where humanly possible).

When it comes to serving customers, if the avocados aren’t ripe enough – they are sent back to the supplier, if the coffee is made incorrectly – it is made again. It’s as simple as that! Everything they serve to their customers is what they should themselves be proud of.
