Great variety of food

Found this by chance when visiting the lovely resort of Wells. Not the most "tempting" of building exteriors but inside the welcome was warm, food very well presented with a good variety. A little cut above the usual seaside café and reasonable value. Its also dog friendly.

Excellent coffee and a great bacon ciabatta to set us up for a walk along the beach. Lots of choice here - will definitely come back next time in Wells.

This place is always busy and it can be a bit tricky to get a table at lunchtime, however we managed on a Saturday and all enjoyed a healthy lunch which was served quickly. Nice selection of vegetarian dishes and delicious looking cakes.

Stumbled across (although on the main quay) and had a lovely healthy lunch - noodle pot! Then easily spoilt with a good range of cakes/treats! Imagine gets very busy at peak times.

We never managed to return to enjoy the vegetarian food, but we loved the comfortable rest room and the rice cakes were fabulous. We will be back!

I look for three key ingredients in such places: 1 Use decent quality coffee beans and make it well. 2 Offer good quality customer service. 3. Serve up usual 'fodder' in a slightly different way so that it can call itself a 'deli' and charge appropriate mark up prices. This place does all of these three things very well indeed.... More

Last of our two-day whistle stop tour of North Norfolk finished with a trip to this part of the world and a quick snack at this coffee shop. We ordered a homemade meat roll and a custard tart.

Popped into the deli for a coffee around 4pm as most of the shops were closing and the pleasant views from the deli makes this the place to relax and unwind after a long days walking. The staff are so friendly and the range of refreshments are great.
