“Delicious Homemade Cakes”
Reviewed February 12, 2014

We stopped by for afternoon tea and cakes. Excellent value - we had a very generous piece of Chocolate Cake and an equally generous piece of Victoria Sponge Cake. Both were delicious and fresh washed down perfectly with a lovely mug of Latte and Capuccino.

“Regular visits”
Reviewed January 26, 2014

This establishment is a little unusual inasmuch that it has a ground floor eating area and a split level first floor eating area. It is a cafe' but not a greasy spoon. It is very much a place for meeting friends for breakfast, brunch, lunch or afternoon tea. Light meals, snacks and a range of teas and coffees are offered. Meals are fresh cooked but waiting time varies according to how busy they are at the time. My wife and I use Tall Orders on a regular basis as it is conveniently situated among the shops in the High Street.

“Lovely Little Cafe”
Reviewed December 31, 2013

I recently stopped in for a coffee and a baguette sandwich as I had some errands to run in Thetford. The café is clean, cosy, and tastefully decorated in a simple but effective scheme. The waitress was polite and friendly. The coffee was of good quality and the sandwich was freshly made and a suitable sized portion for the price. It is a great place for a quiet stop if in the middle of town.

“Lovely food and service”
Reviewed November 2, 2013

My husband and I went into this cafe half hour before close. The service was lovely and our coffee and cake 'hit the spot'. I had been looking forward to a cream tea, but they had sold out - hardly surprising given the time of our arrival! The menu looked extensive and varied, with a very good selection of light and more substantial meals. We will be back on our next visit to Thetford.
