Another fantastic visit to this cafe, the food is excellent every time. I wouldnt go anywhere else for lunch while in the city. Whatever you chose from the menu you can be sure, Steve or Georgia, [ first name terms now] have prepared it with the usual attention to detail and presentation that thier regulars have come to expect. Long may it continue.

“Terrific”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 18, 2012

Had lunch there today with my wife - grilled mediterranean vegetables and a super steak sandwich. Great place to relax and enjoy the well cooked food. Must try the sausage rolls next time - they are huge!

“Love this place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2012

Whenever i'm back in Norwich, I look forward to coming to this cafe. The food is amazing, and it's home-cooked with free-range everything, which is a bonus! Everything is so reasonably priced, unlike 99% of other places around town. The cakes are too tempting, the sausage rolls are brilliant and I could just go on and on. Definitely recommended, if you haven't been here, you're missing out!

“Great City Centre Cafe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2012

Easily overlooked simply because the cafe is on the first floor so you can miss the doorway entrance next to Hughes TV and Electrical shop and some people might need to know there is a flight of stairs to negotiate. Soup of the day was delicious and Steve's sausage rolls are amazing. Coffee was fine and all reasonably priced. Cakes look tempting too. Decor is plain and there was a bit of a draught through the open door. Very handy location for a break from Xmas shopping.

“Just keep your eyes on the food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2012

We visited this cafe for a light early lunch having seen the reviews on Tripadvisor. We weren't disappointed, and would unhesitatingly recommend it. A pleasingly original choice of dishes; well-filled sandwiches with proper hunks of bread and really excellent freshly brewed coffee. All for less than a tenner for two. And actually a nicely fitted out room ... but, the view from the windows is dire, just drab back walls of abutting properties. That's not the fault of the proprietors, but they might just have the glass cleaned and remove the untidy mounds of personal clutter on the sills behind the counter that make the negative visual impact so much worse. In a retail environment, any visible space is public space. Scented geraniums anyone?
