Three of us thoroughly enjoyed all day breakfasts with herbal teas (or one with a favourite beer): vegetarian, meat and bacon/pancakes/maple syrup (there was a vegan choice, too, if you wanted that option) Delicious homemade cake, too. Quirky, informal setting and helpful, friendly staff,

Staff are attentive and polite, when I've had food it's always been to a decent quality and cocktail have always been well prepared.

Been here a couple of times had a normal cooked breakfast and a vegan breakfast. Both really tasty. Good for quiet evening drinks also. Can be hard to get a table at peak times though.

Hi, the Sunday Breakfast menu is served 10am until 6pm on a Sunday. After that there are nibbles on offer (like the Frank's Bar platter, olives etc) but no main meals I'm afraid.

Frank’s Bar is a cafe-bar in central Norwich. We have filled our bar with good food, top drinks, marvelous music and general chilled-outness. We’re happy for you to enjoy Frank’s Bar in a range of different ways, whether it be with a coffee, glass of wine, tasty meal, or cheeky nibbles we’re really quite flexible. We like to make Sunday’s special as well by offering a fantastic Sunday Breakfast menu (served from 11.00 - 6.00) and a classic afternoon film (screened in the back room) along with the usual selection of great coffee, good papers to peruse and general loveliness.
