We visited this cafe in the summer as we were exploring Norwich in preparation for our son starting at UEA in September and were really impressed with the quirkiness of the venue, the refreshments provided (lovely selection of teas and massive doorstop sandwiches) and especially the friendliness of the staff. Since starting his course Sam has called in on a regular basis for a coffee and chat and feels really at home there - a haven for students in a strange land.

“Lovely cafe, not a restaurant !”
Reviewed 21 November 2013

Pleasant cafe with nice staff and it does serve a good coffee, but not a restaurant so we did not find a wide range of foods available.

“Great Tea, Cakes and a Toasted Sandwich :)”
Reviewed 29 October 2013

After a great day out walking around Norwich and seeing the sites my wife and I were lucky enough to stumble across this excellent tea room. Great service, cakes, snacks and of course tea. I had a green tea blended with cinnamon and spices…I think it was called 'The Kashmiri Blend' - very nice :) My wife ordered a cheese and onion toastie and it was also simply delicious. The place topped off an amazing afternoon out. Noting that this is just off Elm Hill, a tourist attraction in itself, be sure to check it out :)

“Lovely place to eat, drink and relax”
Reviewed 25 September 2013

Great little place this, a real find in the beautiful cobbled area of Elm Hill in Norwich near the Cathedral.

Was hovering outside (entrance is through an archway into a little courtyard) looking at the menu and was encouraged to give the place a try by a group of ladies who had just discovered it for the first time too and were raving about how good the sandwiches were and even proudly showed us some beautiful looking muffins they had just bought to take away.

We couldn't say no after this personal recommendation and we were not disappointed. I had a fab toastie and my mum had carrot and coriander soup. With so many interesting teas on offer (it is "The Tea House after all !!) we took the opportunity to give some unusual teas a go. My mum tried "Russian Caravan" which she enjoyed and my "Almond Black" was lovely tea.

Definitely give this place a try.

“Nice place to chill”
Reviewed 16 September 2013

I came upon this place as a tourist to the city of Norwich, and we were both extremely thirsty from walking around a lot in the sun and got a Cola. It was a nice and welcoming place to relax, and it seemed to be busy with locals. Well, it was not busy, but there seemed to be a couple local people hanging about, which is a good sign. After reading the reviews, I wish I'd had a piece of the yummy-looking baked goods on offer!
