“Lovely cafe - great for food intolerance suffers!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

Lovely café in the centre of Norwich - really friendly and welcoming. Wide range of cakes - most are gluten free and at least one is also Dairy free - and all delicious! Sausage rolls looked amazing too! Well worth a visit.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

My first visit here and will not be the last ..met my friend for a cup of tea and catch up and we both had a wonderful slice of the chocolate fudge cake ....Just wonderful ..best ever ...not too sweet or too rich ...perfect and great cup of tea ....
They also do breakfasts , lunches and of course thoses yummy cakes too ...
Nice clean fresh and bright cafe ...good clean toilets too ..always most important ....
The leaflet I picked up says that their meat is local and free range and eggs too .... also they have gluten free choices as well .
Will be back with another friend ...to spread the word ...

“Steves Amazing Scotch Eggs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

Another visit to this fabulous cafe where the food does nothing but improve every time. Steves amazing sausage rolls have taken a back seat for me and are replaced by his amazing scotch eggs. I took one to work today and my colleagues all tried a piece, needless to say they are huge and a meal on its own. Go in, try them, you definately will not be disapointed.

“Catchup for friends”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

After reading the reviews I thought I would try this as a catchup place for chat with one of my friends. The chocolate fudge cake was nice but personally I found that the choice of cakes limited, my friend said her tea was lovely but I didn't enjoy my hot chocolate at all.
