Fantastic cafe

A beautiful location. Every time I have visited, whether for a quick coffee or for a emal, the food has been excellent. I just wish it would open for evening meals all the time.

I knew the Rocket House Cafe had great views, but had read in the Rough Guide that the food lacked subtlety. We decided to go for the views anyway, and I'm so glad we did. The lady who served me was really friendly and efficient, and extremely accommodating when we wanted to vary things on the menu for our two... More

A great place to eat, visit, look out to sea from a high elevation. See Cromer Pier close by and watch the beach activities. What a view and what a great place to eat. Sit in or out and view of the seaside just lovely. The restaurant has class. Great service and wonderful food. We will return very soon and... More

We stopped over for a quick lunch, rather a small menu to choose from, but friendly service and very reasonable prices. Excellent local Ice Cream for the Children!

Have had lunch here many times and the staff are always helpful and cheerful and the food is always great. Good choices and the addition of a blackboard with specials on.

The Rocket House Café is a friendly, warm and busy place. We had lunch there mid week - both had duck wraps. Its a great place to meet up or just to pop in. The views from all windows are spectacular weather its raining or fine.

Booked a table for 12.30 and then had the queue for 35 minutes to place our order at the bar. Cromer crab platter was the signature dish and by 13.05 when we were about to order we were told they had run out. Food was average at best. Very much a café. Nice location and good staff but not a... More

Well situated on the front above the RNLI museum. Can access from the coast path and come down the lift or from the gangway from the sea.. Wonderful friendly staff only to happy to oblige. Do good snacks and brilliant for a quick tea/coffee. Can lounge in comfort inside or outside on the balcony with panoramic views out to sea.
