The place for breakfast

House café in St. Benidicts Street in Norwich serves excellent food including vegetarian options. There is also a large selection of home made cakes and a wide range of coffee and a very large range of teas. Service is friendly and prices reasonable. It is family friendly

Love this place. Bit quirky and love the atmosphere. The three slices of ciabatta toast is great and they don't skimp on the butter or marmalade. Also a mug of tea is a large proper mug of tea. Their version of the full english is also well worth it, love the chipolatas rather than sausages.

I visited House cafe recently, and was excited to try the gluten free breakfast, as I had heard good things. Sadly I didn't even get to try the food, because I was made to feel very unwelcome by the staff. I stood for a long time at the counter waiting to be served by two staff who were stood seemingly...

The cafe has a really nice relaxed vibe. I ordered the house breakfast and a coffee. The coffee was very nice. The breakfast was simply lovely. Excellent quality, nicely cooked, amazing bread for the toast and good value for money. I will definitely be back.

We went there once for an English breakfast. The house was full and it took a bit of time for someone to take our order. Because it was so busy, it also took way over 30 minutes for our order to arrive. The toasts they make are in such amazing bread, couldn't stop eating it. Good quality breakfast, not the... More

We came to House cafe for a family breakfast and I have to say it was by far the best I've ever tasted! Myself, my husband and children all agreed and also enjoyed the relaxed welcoming atmosphere here. The staff were friendly and very accommodating on what was a very busy saturday. The food looked amazing and tasted even better,... More

This place used to be great so I was gutted to see the change. Hash browns? No, frozen precut chips. Free range eggs? Ha! The staff see it as some school hang out and I was surprised to hear that it was management! They seem to care more about pleasing the kids at cash converters then genuine customers. Like I... More
