Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The guys took over this place earlier his year and in my opinion have elevated it to the next level. The coffee is absolutely top notch and the daily homemade freshly baked goods are both fresh and tasty. I go past several other coffee shops to visit doing a 16mile round trip the product is that good. I recommend to anyone to give them a go. It is a friendly modern atmosphere and if it looks busy don't just walk away people are always happy to share their table. In a world full of large corporates these 2 guys are showing the so called big players how it should be done. Thanks chaps just keep doing what you're doing.

Visited with a friend from Suffolk. We both had the pastrami bagel with pickle and a side of slaw. It was absolutely delicious, a perfectly toasted bagel, with just the right amount of pastrami (not the overkill you usually get) while the slaw was possibly the best I have ever tasted thanks to the incredible dressing (would love to get the recipe!) that was on it. The accompanying breakfast tea I had with mine was also excellent as was the coffee my friend had (and who having visited previously said their coffee is just fantastic and comes highly recommend ). Well worth a visit!

What a treasure! Lovely cafe that could have come straight out of little arty alley way in Amsterdam. Happy staff and full of people. Had a gorgeous big cheese toastie with house made pickles and ferments. And so many bonus points - bottomless filter coffee (I love filter coffee), accepts cash, artisan bread for sale as well as coffee beans, tea and “trinkets”.

I thought it would be a really nice idea to pop into Old School Coffee to treat my wife to brunch. Having seen all the reviews and Instagram posts it looks perfect for a lazy brunch on a Bank Holiday weekend. We arrived just before 11am to find the cafe full, opting to sit on the sofa as it was the only space available, unfortunately whilst it is set as a table it was too low and so far back to serve as a suitable place to eat anything. I knew my wife would have loved the smashed avocado but she dismissed it due to the seating arrangements. I don’t blame her, her feet couldn’t reach the floor is she sat back! Nevertheless the cafe is very relaxing and has a great vibe. The staff were friendly and both the Latte I ordered and the Oak Milk Terrys Orange Hot Chocolate were lovely. Sadly though once for a moment we noticed a number small fruit flys buzzing around our heads and a strange smell similar to baby sick coming from behind the sofa. It wasn’t overpowering but just there in the background. And then the food, which I was most looking forward to, ended up being a bit of a let down. I had ordered a bagel which to it’s due was lovely and my wife had ordered a toasted hot cross bun, the bagel came out after about 15 minutes after we ordered but the hot cross bun just didn’t seem to be forthcoming. I had eaten most of my bagel when I got up to ask where the hot cross bun was. The staff were very apologetic and rushed one to the kitchen which sadly came through a few minutes later half toasted. The butter just about melted into the top half whilst the bottom half was cold and claggy. It’s such a shame that our first experience of this lovely little cafe was a negative one. I don’t know if I would return, if I did it would probably just be for a coffee to go. 3/5 for us. First impressions are important and sadly it just missed the mark!

The best coffee in Beccles, reasonably priced and free refills on filter coffee! A delicious and varied range of lunch options and sweet treats. The owners are always very friendly and clearly strive for excellence every day! Keep up the good work lads and have a very merry Christmas! Liam O'Connor x

Visited with family, which included a mini Dachshund who was warmly welcomed by staff and other customers. This is a lovely place, cosy, friendly and with a great vibe. The coffee is superb, as are the cheese scones. It's located in an historic building and the owners have themed it cleverly and tastefully to recognise and celebrate this heritage. We would highly recommend a visit

Awesome coffee and awesome staff! Brought two coffees whilst waiting for my husband to arrive, husband was late as always and the great staff at Old School Coffee made a fresh coffee when he arrived. Faultless, and would never go anywhere else now!

A delicious Toasted cheese with kimchi amongst the plants. Fab sandwich! My partner had pastrami bagel & rates it highly. Both had crispy fresh pickled cucumbers. New owners have added loads of plants & lightened & brightened this already lovely spot. The barista is great - serving house coffee and guest beans. Probably the best decaf I’ve ever had. Perfect to accompany the GF brownie which was top rated by my American friend. Exceeded expectations. We’ll be back.

This is my favourite place in Beccles. Amazing coffee (and I’m fussy) and food. I love coming here early to do a bit of work in a calm atmosphere (good music and abundant plants)! They use reusable cups for ice drinks in the summer if you are staying in to drink.. thoughtful eco vibe. I also love bringing the kids here. They have a fab little corner of toys and books. This place deserves to thrive! Go grab a coffee and monster pastry now!

Beautiful lunch here today. Goats cheese toastie was amazing and Mum had a warm cheese scone, both were delicious! Mum tried their new pumpkin spiced latte and said it was the best she’d tried,I had a lovely hot chocolate. Couldn’t recommend more. Jacob and Archie are doing an amazing job!

Very welcoming cafe. Bright and airy. Coffee was superb. I chose the avocado soft boiled egg on gorgeous sourdough toast. Superb. My husband had a scone which was light and fluffy. Spotlessly clean. Staff were lovely. Relaxed atmosphere. Will definitely return.
