With its big balcony overlooking the seafront, this is a place to enjoy a sunny day and enjoy the Cromer surroundings. Unfortunately the stairs to the cafe and the outside seating area looked rather grubby, and this didn't do justice to the very tasty looking food that was being served. Service was very friendly and quick and coffees were excellent;... More

We had a really great lunch meal at the Rocket House Cafe. The food is sourced locally where possible - for instance the bread is made up the road for instance. The sandwiches come with a good size portion of chips, and the salad garnish a really nice mix with a good dressing. The fish in my fish finger sandwich... More

This is a cafe whose main attractions include the view, both from inside and outside on the terrace. The food and service is very good and the staff are very friendly and professional. If anyone has mobility difficulties there is a lift which operates between (floor zero) to the cafe (floor one) the sea front to the cliff top and... More

We had the hot smoked mackerel and eggs on toast for breakfast. The mackerel was the best we had ever eaten. Unlike a previous contributor we loved the chopped spring onions over the top . The coffee was good too. The cafe is situated above the RNLI Henry Blogg Museum and has wonderful sea views and a balcony for warmer... More

We have visited this busy Café with its fantastic sea view, dozens of times over the years. The food is consistently very well prepared, with a good menu using locally sourced ingredients where possible, and of the highest quality. They have even produced their own distinctive art posters. The staff are very friendly, professional and 'with it'. Definitely a cut... More

Popped in for a cup of coffee and a large slice of cake and both were delicious. Lovely cafe with great views of the sea and really great cakes. Very family orientated and not cramped which makes a real difference.

Have only just found this place & already been twice in a month! Me & my friend both have babies under 1 so the layout is lovely as plenty of room for 2 pushchairs & highchairs. The food is amazing & presented lovely. Only downside is not all the staff are the most friendly, on both occasions. But will definitely... More

The menu here is really good, and the food generally tastes fresh and delicious. The baguette and sandwiches were good today and the kids hummus, bread & carrot dips made a nice change from the standard fare, as did the mini macaroni cheese. However the chips were a tad on the hard side and a bit anaemic looking. The fish... More

We went for breakfast and the place very quickly filled up with locals -- a sure sign of a great place to visit. Wonderful view of the beach, enjoyable breakfast (we ordered off menu which wasn't a problem for them). The lunch menu looked great too. Best place we went to while in Cromer.
