“Fantastic”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

I could ramble on for hours about how good this place is, but in short it's one of the very few coffee shops in Norwich that is worth visiting, as well as being my favourite. The staff are all really friendly and helpful and know how to make a proper cup of coffee. The range of coffee is excellent, including Aeropress, pour over, as well as all of the standard espresso-based drinks. They often have guest beans on offer and are more than happy to have a chat about what's new and good. They also have a market stall which is a godsend when you're in the city.

The food is varied and really good and usually home-made, with daily specials on offer depending on the time of year, as well as a standard menu. The Facebook page is regularly updated with changes to opening hours and any specials that they might be doing.

This is a small and cosy coffee shop that serves some of the best coffee out there. I cannot recommend it enough. I just wish it was close to my house!

“Excellently consistent”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

We've been kickstarting our day here since they opened and without question these guys know their beans!
A friend of mine (an award winning chef of 25 & some years) did the London Time Out recommended coffee shops but insists when he comes to Norwich the little red roaster offers better consistency than any of them.
It's not just the coffee either, it's all of it, great staff, food & cakes too!

“Best coffee in Norwich and area”

This is the only place to go if you want the best quality coffee, always fresh roasted coffee, friendly staff. They do cakes and some food at groove road. At the market stall in town they also make coffee..
