“Nice Food, Very Friendly”
Reviewed 16 March 2013

Visited the Waterways Cafe last summer, this isn't the sort of place to go if you just want a quick Burger and Chips. They clearly put more quality and attention into their food than most of the other cafes on the seafront. There's plenty of tables and chairs outside for you to sit on and take in the sun.

Would definitley recommend the Omelette and chips!

“pop in after a walk”
Reviewed 22 September 2012

Situated at the nicer end of Great Yarmouth in the Waterways site on the sea front. Perfectly located for a rest and refreshments. Hot food is freshly cooked and nicely served. Excellent value and a friendly owner. Don't try the Cherry Horlicks which was specially purchased for 3 racegoers, it's dire (private joke).

“Great cafe by the beach”
Reviewed 9 September 2012

The owners are extremely lovely and very knowledgable of Gt Yarmouth & surrounding areas. Breakfasts are cooked to perfection, setting you up for the day. The atmosphere is relaxing, with great views of the beach and sandy grass dunes. There are water bowls for dogs, so everyone is well catered for. They also do boat trips around the Waterways, weather permitting. A definite gem of a place.

“great little cafe brilliant atmosphere”
Reviewed 9 September 2012

This is a very pretty and scenic little cafe where the service is great and the atmosphere is very friendly. Its a family run business and having visited it several times now we have always found the staff friendly and they remembered us. It situated right by the beach and they run a small boat trip which goes along the waterways, which are very relaxing and fun. It is also child and dog friendly. Highly recommended!
