“Clearly the best in Norwich”
Reviewed 25 April 2014 via mobile

This is a very special and world class independent cafe. Fantastic coffee, cake, savouries, and the warmest service from a great barista/proprietor. The cafe is small and increadible convivial. I always end up chatting with other customers. The coffee is brewed to perfection using a naked portafilter (no spouts, just a bottomless coffee basket) but not behind a bar as usual. The coffee beans are small batch roasted within a few days of the brew. The tiny but perfectly formed space is open plan which makes one feel like you are amongst friends. There are not many cafés with this layout but it works very well and is a brilliant example of what can be achieved in a small space.

Do try this wonderful café. I don't think you could be disappointed.

“Good coffee”
Reviewed 10 April 2014

The coffee's great, the owner friendly, it's near to my office. Aside from the coffee, The Window also flogs tasty sweet and savoury snacks. For me, that's all i need.

“Best Coffee in Norwich”
Reviewed 4 April 2014

Hayley made us feel really welcome this morning. The coffee was great, and I loved the chocolate florintine,and my husband really enjoyed his goats cheese twist. Don't get to Norwich often, but will certainly be making a return visit to The Window.

“Favourite place ever”
Reviewed 15 March 2014

I come here about four times a week because the coffee is excellent and so is Hayley :-) I usually have an espresso, a flat white or a mocha if I feel like treating myself - the porridge is super yummy too!

“Flat white”
Reviewed 1 March 2014 via mobile

The reviews are warranted, this is a great little coffee shop, I have not had a better flat white anywhere. Hayley also offers great advice on the coffee for sale and the cakes really do look amazing, pop in you won't be disappointed and there is also a great ladies boutique just opened next door.
