“Friendly staff, good food, ow prices, sea views.... .....what more do you want?”
Reviewed December 2, 2012

On a winter photography visit to Cromer I dropped in here for a mid-morning coffee. Wow... ...I have never come across such a fantastic eatery! My coffee and fruit scone, with butter and jam, was roughyl half the price I would have paid in the small country town where I live. The staff were all friendly, lots of smiles, and polite. As for the food... ....I couldn't fault it. The scone was fresh and large! How much? Less than £3... ...you can't get better than that!

I was so delighted I returned later for lunch and there was no disappointment there either. Although the place was busier than earlier, service was still quick, polite and friendly. My sausage baguette with chips and salad, plus coffee, was delicious! Oh, and the price this time? Under £7... ...try and better that!

An added bonus are the sea views - there is even an outside balcony with tables for the summer months. I am sure this place is very busy in the summer, but if you are visiting outside the busy season then it is too good to miss.
