Great food and service

If you want the best sandwiches in Norwich with the friendliest staff who all work together as a team - this is where you need to be. Much better than Costa. I always go for the the Egg Mayo and bacon, or the Chicken & Tom.

i drop in here fairly frequently with work colleagues. The coffee is always to a high standard and their sausage rolls generally call to me, ( I usually succumb), the staff are always pleasant and cheerful. The seating is really comfy and it is a real struggle to get back on the road, plus there is the option on nice... More

We regularly stop by here, the setting is lovely although can get busy at times with business meetings going on all around you (as its in a business park) quality 'out of the ordinary' food just wish the prices were abit less. The owner has a cafe in Happisburgh and thats lovely too.

I meet with friends here every week for coffee, everybodys really friendly and coffee is great. Also come with kids in the holidays because they feed the ducks and play outside while I have a quiet coffee and can watch them from the Windows. Love this place.

Tucked away off the A47 at Postwick, this is a quiet little spot to have a coffee - and feed the ducks if you like! The queues do build up at peak times, but you can't rush a great coffee. The food is the usual paninis & cakes. Soup & jacket potatoes are available in the colder months along with... More

Next to the Premier Inn. A lovely location on a business park with a little wetlands site! Freshly made food, plenty of choice. Huge selection of teas. Very nice cakes.
