    Came to this café as a watering hole on our 4hr round trip to buy seafood. On a blustery day it served us well.. Nice decor... service was great with 2 coffees and 1 cake and 1 sausage roll costing £13 . Very cosy with very comfortable seating throughout.

    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.

    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.

    Great little eatery that we'd heard about so went for brunch. My wife had a Christmas Turkey style sandwich and I had a Hunters Chicken baguette with a hot sausage roll to share. All food was amazing and great portion sizes so really filling. Following that when leaving we also had a couple of cakes, Terry's choc orange brownie and an almond tart... Again, both really nice. Highly recommend! Great food, friendly service, nice setting and also dog friendly!

    Excellent, long-standing and justifiably popular cafe in central Cromer. Good food, and a superb Flat White coffee. Booking advisable - it can get very busy. Highly recommended.
