This is a lovely little restaurant/cafe in the heart of Swaffham. We popped in for some breakfast on market day - although very busy the staff were friendly, polite and the food arrived in reasonable time. It was delicious the bacon and sausages top notch along with everything else. We'll certainly be back and are happy to recommend this cut... More

Popped in here for a coffee one Saturday morning. The place was packed downstairs but we were pleased to find a nice table overlooking the market place. We ordered two coffees - cappuccinos and a large teacake to share between us and my word it was large and delicious. We would rather frequent independent coffee shops than chains and this... More

We were passing through swaffham on our way to the north Norfolk Coast and were looking for somewhere for a quick tasty lunch. The cafe looked very attractive from outside and we were not disappointed. A tasty bean burger, pate board, salmon and cream cheese sandwich and a rich tasty macaroni cheese were all enjoyed by our family. Delighted to... More

Another mum and me took our 4 boys out for breakfast on market day in Swaffham for a treat. We had a big table upstairs and all ordered a full English breakfast. It was quick, really helpful staff and the most delicious breakfast . Clean plates all round.

This is an excellent place to go for lunch and the menu is good and varied. The evening menu is different and also very good but the restaurant only opens in the evenings at the week-ends.

This a great little venue offering fantastic coffees, teas, lunches and snacks during the day - when the sun shines it's lovely sitting outside watching the market place going about it's business, it's a real sun trap. At night of a weekend there is a very good restaurant menu catering for most tastes. The building is beautiful with lots of... More

Popped in here for lunch yesterday, both my girlfriend and I had the Burger and they were amazing, a little on the pricey side for just a burger at 6.95 but well worth it. Lovely old building very friendly staff and free Wifi with a lovely view of the Market Place. We will definitely be going back.
