Amazing Breakfast

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

This is the best fried breakfast in Norwich!! Lovely plate full and home made cibatta bread. The eggs st Benedict are well worth a try too!! The sausage rolls are yummy as well. Excellent atmosphere and friendly staff. You can enjoy your breakfast at your leisure .

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

...however I went for tea and cake and the choice of cakes available were very limited. Perhaps during the week the selection is larger, it seemed to me that being a Sunday maybe they had wound down on their selection, there were at least two empty cake containers on the counter so maybe during the week they offer more.

First visit today to House Cafe in Norwich. Wow what a breakfast! Spent 30 years in the Police Service and have been to hundreds of cafes around the UK and this has to rate as one of the best, if not the very best fry up I've had. Fantastic chipolata sausages and bacon, plus eggs, beans, toms, hash browns and... More

I popped in for lunch but unfortunately will never know if the food is any good. I was the only customer at the counter but was completely ignored by the 3 staff members. One was serving tables so fair enough, but the other two were too busy playing with their phones to bother to take my order or even acknowledge... More

The atmosphere of this place is really nice - full of sofas, shelves of books... The service is very good, and the food as well!
