I do like this establishment ... food served on the terrace by the fresh sea air, energetic servers and a menu that's just a bit different. Had my favourite, mackerel and egg on toast; delicious. Can't praise it more than that really...best breakfast in Cromer!

I met a friend for a catch up over lunch. This is a good place to try. The food and service are good. Prices very reasonable and the views, particularly from the balcony, are to die for!!

We enjoyed the perfect view and quality of the coffee. The staff was very friendly. Some of our friends insisted they have never had a better latte macchiato.
