    Superb service, amazing selection of food including great vegan, fish and meat options. They also do take out frozen fish and cottage pies which we used for a dinner party. Large selection of cakes and desserts. Decent prices. Wonderful team that have also opened the West Deli around the corner.

    Lovely little place. Warm and friendly, nice and clean. Quick service. Lavazza coffee served very decent. I have traditional sausage roll. See photo. Partner had sticky date slice. Both very tasty. Place to pop in for decent coffee and snacks if you are in Cromer.

    Polite staff despite the brunch rush. Porridge with fruit was good and a very good size portion, fair price. Cakes etc all looked delicious and fresh.

    Delightful cafe in this seaside town in North Norfolk. It serves very good coffee and a magnificent selection of sweet and savoury baked goods (cheese and marmite sausage rolls were having a guest appearance when we visited). But for those with more conservative tastes, normal, large, homemade sausage rolls are available, together with cakes and scones. We had crab sandwiches, which came with a salad garnish and were tasty and filling. Staff were pleasant and helpful.
