“Coffee and Cake and totally free!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2014

Just have to praise John Lewis for their offer of free drink and cake once a month for their members. I signed up and have enjoyed some delicious cakes and coffee in their Norwich store, somewhere that I would only infrequently have visited before. Staff are friendly and the cakes delicious. There is always plenty of seating and it makes a great break when shopping in the city.

“Not a great breakfast ”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2014 via mobile

They don't seem to be setup for the breakfast. One person running it means a rather slow line.

As well as offering slightly warm items the bacon was more fat than meat and you don't get toast unless you prompt endlessly.

I'd love to try this place again if they improve but until then stick to the cakes.

“Yummy cakes and coffee”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2014

We visited here last week, lots of new cakes on offer all looked fab, v. hard to choose!! I had the fruit tart which I thoroughly enjoyed, my partner had a fruit scone which he always says are the best in Norwich! Great coffee too. I've never had the savoury food myself but the salads always look fresh and inviting. This is my five year old Grandson's favourite Saturday treat.
