“A hidden treasure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2013

We popped in to this wonderful little cafe, with very empty tummies in hope of a healthy refill. You won't be disappointed basic menu but everything to abundance and great quality. Delightful staff and nothing to much trouble. A great meal and good value

“Three excellent visits in one week”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2013

We had three trips to the Jetty Cafe last week (Carnival week). The service, food and everything else was great. Try to get there for breakfast, the ploughmans or in fact anything.

They were also very accommodating for our daughter (8 months old) and did her a special breakfast and sandwiches later on

“Wish We'd Visited Sooner In The Week”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013

Visited for lunch just before leaving Cromer after a five day holiday and would happily have eaten here again if we'd been staying longer.

We popped in at 1pm on a Friday and there were no tables available inside but the waitress did say we could use one of the outdoor tables across the road. It was a drissly day but we decided to risk it.

I had the Cromer crab salad with granary bread, husband had Cromer crab salad with a jacket potato. The crab was as tasty as we'd become accustomed to in Cromer, the salad lovely and fresh with the dressing in a separate pot so we could add as we liked to our own taste. Hubby's potato was fluffy and light.

Overall a very delicious lunch. The only let down was that as we were seated outside they couldn't serve alcohol. Totally understand that this would be down to licencing, just a disappointment not to have a glass of white with the crab on my last day!

Cromer is difficult for food in the evenings, we walked past the Jetty late afternoon and they were shut and I think they could make a killing if they opened up to 8pm.

No problem recommending this place for a relaxed informal lunch.

“excellent food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013

We went into this cafe on a busy lunchtime. The owner said that he did not have a table, but we could try coming back in 10 minutes. Having read good reviews about the place we left it for half and hour and returned. The owner thanked us for returning, and when presented with the food we were glad we did.
We had a cheese ploughmans and a crab sandwich, both were tasty and well presented. The service faultless, and the prices fair.
I find the earlier poor review from Shannock extremely surprising given the way we were welcomed, I dont think I have ever been made so welcome in a cafe before, and would not hesitate in returning
