Definitely worth a try if you are in Cromer. The cafe may seem a bit basic but the views are fantastic and the food and drinks they serve are all good. We go there often - winter or summer.

It has the best position in Cromer, it's comfortable and the food and drink, though not cheap are always fresh and spot on. Always go there when in Cromer
