Six of us spent the weekend in Cromer and used this coffee shop twice. We had coffee and cakes or scones and it was excellent. Beware it can be busy and there may be a delay to get a table

Had smoked bacon, leek and potato soup on a cold wet Wednesday which was delicious. I am dairy free so asked if the soup had cream/dairy in it. The waitress checked with the kitchen and said it was dairy free. My soup came with focaccia and BUTTER. So I am now rather dubious about eating there again as I cannot... More

Have been visiting here since 2010, visited again last week and to be honest it needs a bit of TLC, we usually are with family and have a pot of tea and chips, the menu and specials on the board are overpriced and therefore off-putting from the word go, it has a grubby feeling to it at the moment as...

Quite a large venue with superb beach views from the balcony or window seats. Menu offers some interesting twists on the usual. Good selection of specials on the board and meal size is more than ample. Perhaps a bit noisy when very busy. Staff were good, service prompt and place kept tidy. Well worth a visit

The café is located above the RNLI Henry Blogg museum and is a very good family café. There is standard fare of burgers and chips etc. but also they have seasonable specials which are inventive and fresh and have a good choice. You can sit outside on the balcony or sit inside, but wherever you sit, try and get there... More
