Interesting

This offers a good range of food with an interesting twist on many traditional snacks Good views of the sea and pier Can be popular with families so noise levels can be high Well worth a visit

Just got there in time for breakfast menu. Love anything with a poached egg. Didn't get a seat near the window as was full that side, even though a dreary day. Overlooks fishing boats and the pier

The view is amazing and the menu and service are both brilliant! We are going back to Cromer later this year and will definitely return!

Went here after first trying Buttercups (see my other review), and, as previously the Rocket House didn't disappoint (should have come here first, but didn't open until 10:00 (Please note I'm not grumbling about that, it's just a fact). Anyway, good food and service was enjoyed prior to seeing the Boxing Day dip.

Always good service and food, though this time my carrot cake was over cooked. Everybody else had a mince pie which they said was good.

We had heard about this cafe from my brother so when we were at the skateboard park we decided to give it a try. It was quite busy but the service was quick and friendly, the food was good and made to order, very tasty and obviously home made. We will definitely be returning!

We have been here several times both for breakfast and lunch. The food is great and the service is efficient. There are tables outside if the weather is nice, if not the inside tables also have a great view of the beach and sea.
