We visited this cafe last time we were in the area too and it has not changed. Their hot chocolate with marshmallows and cream is lovely. We had toasted ciabatta. Mine had goats cheese with pesto and sun dried tomatoes. My husband had ham, cheese and mustard. They were both great. The staff are very polite and very welcoming. Will... More

A cute, cozy cafe ideally located in the central market square area. Only a 5-10 min walk down the road from Framlingham Castle (which is also well worth a visit). Limited seating indoors (no more than 18-19 places), and more offered seating outside however. Lovely, attentive staff served us on the day. I and my companion ended up sharing a... More

The outside chairs get the sun all day and it is lovely to sit outside and enjoy an excellent coffee. Unfortunately not much space inside, which could be a problem in bad weather. Friendly staff (and customers! ) . A good place to relax and enjoy coffee and cake.

Popped in for a light lunch on Tuesday and so glad we did - had a superb meal. We were tempted in by the idea of the beetroot and feta burger and it didn't disappoint, neither did my husband's butternut squash and spinach parcel - both were wonderfully tasty and exceptional value for money. This is a real gem in... More

This is our second visit while away on our holiday. The coffee is to die for especially the Capaccino when sitting on the bench outside watching the world go by .

Yes, it's cramped inside and the tables outside slope, but it has no pretensions - it is a tiny café where the standards are high and the cooking imaginative and good ( e.g. a beetroot and feta burger that was superb. The cakes are good too and they are generous with the tea. I've been here on three occasions, and... More

This venue is always brimming with customers particularly those sunning themselves looking over the market place and enjoying the market. It is very popular which largely speaks for itself

For a tiny little place with a small kitchen and a limited menu I have always had a lovely lunch here. The sort of place I would happily go to alone and while away an afternoon reading a book or the papers, while eating a nice lunch.

Forget the large commercial coffee shops support the local coffee shops is my strong view and very rarely am I disappointed. The Dancing Goat is up there with the best, friendly staff, lovely coffee and delicious cakes amongst other tempting delights. Tables outside watching people coming and going on the market square.
