Frédéric's, a new French delicatessen, is set to open on Magdalene Street ahead of Christmas. The unit, which was previously occupied by Della Kaur, was let by Cheffins on behalf of Magdalene College.

This attractive ground floor shop is set right next to the River Cam and extends to 707 sq ft. The Grade II listed property forms part of the historic parade of shops located opposite Quayside and has been let for £25,000 per annum.

Ania de Laage, from Frédéric's says:

“Frédéric’s is a new artisan food shop being set up in Cambridge by Frédéric de Laage, who has been working in Shoreditch’s pioneering grocer’s Leila’s Shop and who has worked with food and wine for over 10 years between Paris and London. It is a French-inspired aperitif-style food offer, the kind of food easily found at French country markets where olives, cured meats and patés, select farmhouse cheeses and seasonal fresh fruit and vegetables would be available to make an early evening starter or supper, accompanied with a craft beer or wine. But the underlying inspiration was a love of fermented foods; sourdough bread, fermented pickles and drinks (drinking vinegars and kefir), cheese, wine and chocolate, all are fermented and great for nurturing an alternative, complimentary intelligence in the body (gut health) and this is the founding concept. We want to create the space for simple, generous meals that are convenient and easy to prepare, that ultimately create the much-needed time for family and friends where enjoyment is healthy.”

Mark Drummond, Associate, Cheffins, said: “Magdalene Street is one of the most sought-after locations for independent retailers with its attractive, historic shop units and close proximity to the river and Cambridge city centre. Frédéric’s will be a welcome addition to the area and the current tenant mix. This letting goes to show the consistent demand for quality retail units in Cambridge’s best locations despite the ongoing pandemic.”

The building is currently undergoing a comprehensive fit out and Frederic’s aims to be open to the public ahead of Christmas.
