I've been here lots of times. When I'm in Cromer I always eat here as the food is good and always different to everywhere else. A sandwich is not just a sandwich here. It's special. For the first time today I had a meal rather than a sandwich. I ordered fish and chips but when it arrived it was four... More

A week in North Norfolk gave the opportunity to revisit the Rocket House Cafe above the Henry Blogg Museum, in Cromer. For the uninitiated it is an independent operation access by a common stairway / lift operated I understand by the Local Authority and not the Cafe! As many reviewers have stated its view from the balcony is stunning out... More

I often go to the Rocket House Cafe. It is perfect whether you want tea and cake or a full lunch. The food is amazing and unique and nothing like you would get from any other cafe. The staff are all friendly and welcoming and the view is to die for! I couldn't fault the Rocket House Cafe! I personally... More

this was a bustling cafe which had a great atmosphere every day we visited. The staff are friendly, helpful and efficient and clean the tables each time someone leaves. The coffee was good value and scones, croissants and cakes were good quality, fresh and tasty. We visited every day and really soaked up the atmosphere.

Good food and coffee with a superb view over the sea (especially if you sit on the balcony) and all at a very resonable price. A must every time we visit Cromer.

Just popped in for morning coffee but received great service, my wife likes her coffee weak and milky so they put the coffee shot in a small jug for her to add to the hot milk (much better than Starbucks) - the flapjack was lovely as well

We went for lunch, then went back for tea and cake in the afternoon. The falafel was the best I'd ever had (even though I had to leave the wrap because I am GF). The staff were great and we will be back!
