Epic Breakfast

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.

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

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.

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.
