    Would recommend booking ahead. However they did manage to fit my husband and I in for breakfast on a Saturday morning. They did their best to accommodate us. It was quite busy which is a testament to their great menu and lovely atmosphere. Staff were friendly and attentive. The vegan breakfast was sooo good! Coffee was good too. Loved the music posters on the walls and the great jukebox!!

    First point - do book ahead, we didn’t but got lucky on a Saturday morning. Superb place in Norwich for breakfast, and meals through the day. Had the Full Fruit Pig, what a plateful it was! But wonderfully cooked and very tasty. Would visit again without hesitation 😋😋

    Amazing breakfast, one of the best I’ve ever had. The white pudding was a stand out, it was absolutely delicious. The music and decor were on point. Staff very friendly and welcoming.

    One of the best breakfasts I've ever had! The black pudding and white pudding was amazing. Massive breakfast that sets you up for the day. The staff were fantastic as well, there were 5 of us and we didn't pre-book a table but they put us upstairs and were super friendly and very accommodating. I will definitely return again.

    Very nice little cafe in the city with a chilled vibe. They do an excellent vegan breakfast (small or large). It's a bit pricey, but you definitely get what you pay for: a good range of delicious food and some of the best customer service I have ever experienced. I actually went there twice during my stay in Norwich. On my first visit, they were missing one of the items on the menu to make up my breakfast, but they made up for it with extra portions of other items. When I came back the next day they had all the items, so everything was fine. They have a free jukebox with a wide selection of rock/indie/alternative albums. The member of staff I spoke to there said she was impressed with my taste in music! Speaking of staff, they were all very friendly, polite, and welcoming. They're great to talk to, but will happily leave you be if you just want to relax. I stayed there for a few hours to do some writing until they closed. Will definitely go back there again if I get the chance to.
