“Lovely place but slow”
Reviewed 22 October 2013

Very pleasant tea rooms,slow but friendly service and good food. The only downside is the time taken for the food to arrive, about 30 minutes and there were only a few tables occupied. So great for a leisurely lunch but don't pop in for a quick snack if time is tight.

“Lovely!”
Reviewed 3 October 2013 via mobile

We are regulars at Florence's and consider it a jewel in Lynn. A wonderful, friendly place that often "feels" like you are visiting family. A good variety of teas and the home baked goods are divine.

“Well worth a visit”
Reviewed 23 July 2013 via mobile

A lovely tearoom. We visited this afternoon and sat outside in the small courtyard out the back, under the grape vines. The service was excellent and friendly. Their teas selection is good and we had Ceylon Orange Pekoe tea served in china cups. They had a good selection of interesting freshly made sandwiches - we tried a Brie,Bacon and Grape, which came on china plates, with a small salad included. We will definitely return!

“Lovely teashop”
Reviewed 4 June 2013

We chanced upon Florence Cafe and had a great time. We ordered a pot of Royal Jubilee tea and two slices of cake.

The tea, locally blended in Norwich, was lovely and the cakes were delicious and home-made. The ladies who own the place were friendly and accommodating and they even gave us a little sample of another tea because they had brewed a pot for themselves.

The place is small, but welcoming and you can really relax there. The tea and cakes cost us a very pocket friendly £8.60. If that isn't value for money, I don't know what is.

“Consistently good HOME-MADE food”
Reviewed 16 May 2013

Florence Cafe is hidden in one of the streets away from the centre but still well within walking distance. It is almost always busy, but has room upstairs if the 2 (split) ground floor areas are full. They also have a little garden area out of the back door for seating when the warmer weather is with us.
The staff are lovely and helpful.
The portion sizes are generous.
The prices are reasonable - Remember this is home-cooked food not microwave/heat up, mass bought food from a chain.
They have a main menu with regular items, but also do specials.
They have a MASSIVE tea selection.
The cakes are gorgeous.
This is one of the cafes I recommend time and time again to people visiting king's lynn.
