Coffee break whilst visiting friends

Met a friend here for a coffee and chat. Sat outside and ate cake. Really lovely. It was quiet and staff were polite and attentive. Really enjoyed our visit. Gluten free brownie, very nice.

Florence Cafe has friendly welcoming staff, lovely homemade cakes and a great selection of teas. The cake was absolutely delicious, fresh and perfectly moist. The tea served in bone china cups from a generous pot was as good as any I have had. I would particularly recommend the daily specials if you are stopping for lunch. A great start to... More

It's been a while since we've had the chance to visit Florence's, a café that opened a few weeks before we moved to King's Lynn and served as a regular lunchtime destination for many pre-childhood Saturdays. (Whilst I'm sure that the owners would happily accommodate our rather lively 5-year-old, I fear that we may spoil the ambience for others!) The... More

A really nice place for lunch. Food was home cooked and served beautifully by friendly staff. Good menu and very reasonably priced. Cosy and clean surroundings. Will go again.

I had gluten free carrot cake and cherry scone - Wow!! so delicious ! The two ladies who ( I guess ) owns the place are so sweet and friendly. Really great place to enjoy tea or coffee with beautifully made cakes .

We often drop in to Florence's Cafe, usually at lunchtime - there's always home made soup, a roll and butter, but as it's all prepared to order, you can have a variation of what's on the menu. Cheese scones are "as grandma used to bake". Tip - try the "cake pieces", tasters for the cake sold whole (some cakes are... More
