“Consistently lovely!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

This is my second review of Florence Cafe, having been visiting them since 2010 ish. I probably visit once every couple of months. I have found the service and food to be consistently very good. Particularly the amazing cakes. I can't leave without taking one of their generous cakes slabs away!

It is such a lovely, family run local business. The cafe itself is welcoming and relaxing. The decor is how a tea room should be - it's clean, quaint and a little quirky without being clichéd or overdone.

St. James Street has some amazing buildings and I wish the council would see what a tourism trick they are missing down this street. This cafe is still a gem and still worth taking a detour fron the main run of shops.

“Lovely Tea House”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

This a small friendly tea house set over many floor levels. The decor is 'shabby chic', but delightful and comfortable. You will be sure of a warm welcome, good quality food and service.

“Shabby chic vintage individual cafe with excellent cakes and coffee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

Stumbled across Florence café on a brief stop at Kings Lynn. Not so prepossessing from the outside - you have to peer in to see that it is truly a gem. Each table, each chair, all individually put together with 'shabby chic' flair. The cloths, crockery, everything unique and quirky, in a very old cottagy style building near the Minster in Kings Lynn. Excellent cakes, all home-made. Good service. The café was buzzing with keen regulars, many of them women, who no doubt admired the furnishings! A lovely place.

“OMG Amazing!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2014

What can I say, but the food here is to die for. I can honestly say that I have never tasted baking and home cooked dinners like it. They have what seems like a thousand teas to taste, and the cakes are all home made. I was beginning to think they were totally self reliant and didn't need any suppliers!!! In all honesty, this is THE BEST PLACE TO EAT in King's Lynn, without a doubt. If you do nothing else in this town, just go there and try a home made scone or cake, you will not regret it.

“Lovely spot for tea and cake!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2014

We enjoyed delicious cakes and cups of tea at Florence Cafe, and were impressed by the friendliness of the staff and the cute decor. We arrived shortly before closing, and were the only visitors in the place, but did note that there is ample seating both upstairs and down. Very sweet shop, and we can highly recommend it as a nice place to have a little snack.
