The licensed café serves delicious dishes from the deli, created by Julie, including light lunches, cream teas, fresh coffees and yummy homemade cakes!

The café has seating amongst the deli shelves stacked full of tempting delights. Upstairs you can enjoy comfortable sofas to enjoy your morning coffee or delicious full English cooked breakfast, whilst reading the newspapers. During the summer months, why not take a seat outside?

Our passion for all things delicious is at the heart of what we do.

The Deli and Café receive great reviews and it’s definitely worth a visit whenever you are in the area. It’s a great place to stop off and break up the journey on your way up to Norwich or the North Norfolk coast, or back towards Essex and London and equally as good to make a special trip if you are lucky enough to live nearby in this beautiful county of Suffolk!

Fry up heaven!

Went here today for a Sunday morning “can’t be bothered to cook” trip. You know the one, had a few beers the night before and just think let someone else cook. Well this place is very very nice.

The food is well cooked, looks and tastes amazing. Service is good, seats outside were nice for a sunny morning. Not too long to wait for the food, which was cooked to order, and the toast was granary bread. All in all a very nice trip. Do it, you won’t be disappointed

On a trip to Norfolk we were looking for somewhere for lunch and found this little gem of a place. We both had delicious steak sandwiches, probably the best I’ve had. Definitely recommended as a great place for lunch.
