We had a great dinner here - during the late spring and summer they are open Sat nights, as well as normal daytime opening hours. Although it has been open several years we'd only just found out about Rocket Cafe and really pleased to have 'discovered' it. The food is inventive, delicious and well priced, the service is great and,... More

Often visit this super cafe in Cromer. Amazing views, lovely food: well cooked and mostly local produce. It's one of those places that as the look, the feel and the food! I had field mushrooms on a big chunk of toast with a perfectly cooked poached egg. Tip: in season try brunch instead of lunch as it's not (usually!) nearly... More

Dropped in one busy lunchtime but managed to find a table outside which is a must. The menu is interesting and varied with delicious specials on the board. I had a mackerel wrap, hubby had egg and bacon baguette and kids had soup and kiddies sandwich. All were very tasty. Would definitely recommend it.

Splendid location on top of the Henry Blogg lifeboat museum. The café makes the most of it with a lovely balcony (and a smaller glassed in 'sheltered area' as well as some indoor tables). The food is really yummy - sandwiches were served with chips and salad, all of which were delicious (and about £5, I think). Delicious cakes, good... More

Staying in cromer for the weekend, we were looking for somewhere to maximise the evening sunshine for dinner We were seated at an indoor table, but spotted an outdoor table became free, so immediately ran for it, and grabbed it. Well worth while, a lovely view towards the pier and the setting sun, best view in town. The food and... More

Visited for brunch. Food was good - interesting alternatives to usual breakfast options. Local smoked mackerel on toast with poached eggs was delicious. Generous portions too. The coffee wasn't great which was a real shame as good coffee is essential and not too hard to do. Why do so many places fail with this? The cafe was quiet when we... More

We decided to have lunch here due to it's Trip Advisor review. If you want amazing views of the Pier whilst eating I highly recommend it. We were lucky enough to get a balcony table. But it you're not lucky there are loads of tables inside. Our two boys wanted the Fish Finger Sandwiches. I ordered the Pulled Pork with... More

Just the most stunning position overlooking the beach! Very relaxed atmosphere, a really comfortable place. We've eaten here several times, lunch, coffee, snacks and the in-season Saturday evenings, and it's always excellent...wish they would open for more evenings, I'm sure they'd be busy. I don't know where they get the staff but they are some of the friendliest and most... More
