Description: We are an independent cafe serving a range of hearty meals, breakfasts and light bites. We endeavour to produce everything ourselves from fresh ingredients which are sourced locally whenever possible. Our cakes and scones are baked daily, and we serve a variety of traditional specials as well as our popular menu choices. Our fully enclosed children's play area is overlooked by our cafe's outdoor seating, so parents can enjoy a cup of our own-blend coffee whilst their children play or feed our fish, goats and battery rescue hens. Set in the heart of Norfolk, you can enjoy wonderful views over the surrounding countryside and the passing Mid Norfolk Steam Railway line. Originally designed as a teahouse for our holiday park, our growing reputation for excellent service, atmosphere and fresh food means that our cafe has become popular in its own right, attracting visitors from the surrounding villages and further afield. Cyclist groups are always welcome. Yaxham Waters Cafe offers a variety of tasty meals at great prices in a unique rural setting. Its the sort of place where everyone feels comfortable - if you are a builder in steel toecaps, a mum with three kids, business people in suits, a group of friends, its all good!

I been to yaxham water cafe a fews times . This is a great place to chill out . The food and drink is very good and the staff are very helpfull. I love this place in the summer time, when out on a bike I pop in and sit out on the decking looking over the fields chilling with a cold drink and a cake

Hi Ally C - Thanks for the review you submitted a while ago. I'm so happy that you enjoy your visits and hope you are still using the cafe and have seen it improve over recent times.

I think you were at the forefront of cycling to our cafe! - we now regularly cater for over 75 cyclists each day over the weekend as they use us as a turning round point from Norfth Norfolk, Norwich and Wymondham.

We have extended our large veranda and are about toi open our new cafe extension which will treble the seating and cooking areas!

Hi rodbla1. Thanks for the review you left us back in 2014 - I even got a name check - fab!

Well, after a long time in the planning our new extension is about to open (mid April quietly with a grand official opening early June). It will mean we can treble the size of the kitchen and seating areas.

We are absolutely committed to not losing the lovely atmosphere the staff (and customers!) have created and want to keep the place personal, where you and your business is truly appreciated. All the best. Pablo
