The cafe itself is lovely, great food and drink in a pleasant setting. Staff are friendly and efficient. However, be warned, if you happen to be in the toilet when the parking attendant turns up with his photos of the cars in the car park then you will get a nice surprise in the post like I did this morning...

My wife and I enjoyed or cakes and she had a decaf cappuccino and sausage roll too, just the ticket as she'd not eaten since midnight for a glucose test at hospital, so the twins in her tummy and their mummy enjoyed their sausage roll very much... I acted as canary down the mine and tried a bite first!! Nice... More

Stopped here on the way back from a meeting. We had jacket potatoes which were hot and delicious with plenty of filling and a fresh salad too. Followed with a lemon poppyseed muffin and coffee. Lovely convenient location, reasonable prices, hot fresh food and great service. Fabulous

I needed a simple coffee and cake with a friend who needed a listening ear. This was a very good choice of cafe, it did just that. Provided great coffee and great cake, with comfy chairs and space between tables for a bit of privacy. Kinda perfect!

As we were having a late dinner we thought we might go for a coffee and a cake somewhere, so using the Spree app, we looked for nearby and this place came up hidden amongst the Broadland Business Park, we went in and found the staff to be extremely friendly and accommodating, very jovial, exactly who you'd want working in...

This is a great place to meet for a drink and/or snack. It is popular with people who work on the business park or have attended the gym or been out for a run. Very friendly staff and tasty food. Prices are fair. They have a loyalty card for when you purchase hot drinks. There is decking by the water... More

After popping here a couple of times with my husband for an iced coffee in the sun I was impressed with the service and atmosphere. A lady in my team was retiring so I thought it would be a nice place to take her for a surprise lunch, I called to ask if they could lay on an afternoon tea... More

Was brought here by a business collegue for an informal lunch meeting and was highly impressed with the food and service. Lovely friendly staff, amazing coffee and very relaxed atmosphere and perfect for meetings without the hassle of the hustle and bustle of the city centre. Will definitely be frequenting here more often.
