We got there just after mid day and had no problem find a table for 4, however it quickly filled up, testimony to how good... More

We visited this cafe at 3.30pm just before the annual New Years' Day fireworks display. The place was absolutely HEAVING!! So we were delighted to be served quickly and efficiently with a very good sandwich and excellent coffee. Goodness knows how many people they served in a couple of hours but the staff were friendly and efficient and the food... More

The Rocket Cafe was PACKED when we visited on a cold windy December day, but service was efficient and speedy. The menu is full of seasonal food, including excellent healthy salads and plenty of veggie options. My husband had a fish finger bap, where the fish fingers looked home made, and I had felafel salad which comprised a home made... More

Popped in for a coffee at lunchtime and, although it was very busy, there was a fairly quick turnover and tables were promptly made ready. Our waiter, a university student working in his hols, was very pleasant and friendly. Will definitely go again when back in Cromer.

This is a cafe with food that is not the ordinary cafe food that tastes great. As well as a board that says what the specials are there is the board that says which are the products with the fewest food miles. Add to all this views of the sea as you sit with your wrap and coffee.

Excellent service, nice contemporary food and really friendly young staff. Get in early for lunch as tends to get busy after 1pm. Views across Cromer seafront second to none.

We have visited several times, usually when taking the grandchildren to the "End of the Pier Show." They offer a good quality, when possible, locally sourced menu which is simple, well priced and seasonal. There is always something the children like with plenty of healthy choices, as well as featuring excellent Norfolk cheeses. The environment is comfortable with a choice... More

No complaints about the food or the service at the Rocket House Café, as other reviewers have pointed out; the menu is far superior to the standard fare offered by other Cromer cafés. Service is excellent, when we went the restaurant was almost full, yet our meal of falafels with generous side portions of salad and chips was served reasonably... More

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
