This is my third visit to the Galway Roast since I started my business sales job. The daily specials are always great value, tasty and available with gluten free bread. It's great to come in from a morning walking around in the cold weather to a delicious meal served quickly by friendly staff. I love the fact that I'm given... More

We stopped by here for a late breakfast. Service was quick and friendly, with my little niece being offered colouring book and pencils to help keep her entertained. Breakfast was nicely presented and great value for money.

The place was really busy with Christmas shoppers but we were seated quickly and someone came to take our order promptly. Food was pretty quick considering how busy they were. It was cooked well and very nice. Good size pot of tea too.

Visited this place on Thursday evening and we were welcomed by what seemed to be a very helpful waitress, we sat at the table and within 3/4 minutes selected what we wanted, then this waitress came over to the table and said coffee only as we will be closing in 5 minutes. We immediately left as she could have said... More

Just spotted this new cafe on London Street in Norwich, so my husband and I popped in this morning to test the coffees. A big thumbs-up from both of us for pleasant service plus really good Vanilla and Caramel lattes. Ambience could do with being a little less "industrial" but the staff were warm and friendly! Have made a note... More
