We are a popular, lively, friendly cafe in the centre of Cromer, in busy Garden Street leading directly to the beach and pier. In a relaxed atmosphere we serve non-fussy, great-tasting food - all day breakfast, lunch and early dinner, with a selection of homemade “specials” and an assorted range of cakes, scones, cookies and cakes all homemade by proprieter, Ema Rowlands, and her staff. We are open from 8.30am every day of the year, except Christmas Day. Inside we can seat approximately 50 customers, and have small outdoor seating areas at both the front and the rear of the café.
