I booked a table in advance for my family for a birthday breakfast. On arrival we waited 10 mins before someone took our order,whilst watching other people who had walked in being served. The pot of tea arrived quite promptly, 2 of the kids milkshakes arrived 15 mins later and then my daughters milkshake arrived 30 mins after that. We... More

Visited here for the first time on Saturday to kick off my friends stag and it's potentially my new favourite breakfast location in Norwich. The service was great (with the waitress being the right amount of sarcasm and joining in the stag-like banter), the home made hash-browns were sheer perfection and they even sold glasses of milk by the pint...

Came here on a Sunday morning after spending ages trying to arrange a breakfast with friends, with limited choice due to one of our party being vegan. There aren't too many places to sit, but it's worth the wait. Seen a few people on here commenting on staff not being attentive, this wasn't the case at all. Lovely staff, gingerbread... More

Me and my partner have been here quite a few times, usually when we have friends visiting. I can't remember the last date but it was later last year... It's in a nice location on St Benedicts Street which is a little bit away from the high street. The staff are always friendly and the food is yummy! It's a... More

We received a friendly service in this cafe with a lovely brownie and tasty coffee and tea. This is the second time we came to Norwich and the second time in the cafe. Really nice place

Visited here with a friend for a fry up after hearing the good reviews. Can't find any fault, as soon as I sat down I was asked if id like a drink, this was brought out a short while later and we ordered food which swiftly followed. I had the full house breakfast which was brilliant, the coffee I had... More

I held off publish this review until I received a response from the house, but after a week with no reply, they obviously aren't going to, so I thought TripAdvisor readers would be interested to now my experience of House Café. Here's a copy of the email: Dear Proprietor, I have just returned from House Cafe from breakfast and I... More

Unfortunately there is nothing good to say about House Cafe. The service was appalling, the length of time it took for staff to take an order for coffee, let alone food, was unforgivable and the wait for average tasting food quite embarrassing. Please do not waste your time; there are far far better independent cafes in Norwich.
