“breakfast in a bowl !!!!!!!!!!”
Reviewed 23 May 2014

My husband and I have been customers in the waitrose café for many years We travel from Hitchin herts to Cromer roughly every other weekend and have always stopped here for our breakfast and up to a couple of weeks have enjoyed this BUT on the past two occasions have been offered breakfast in a BOWL we accepted this this first time but it was so clumsy trying to cut sausages etc. We asked for an ENGLISH BREAKFAST on a plate and was told there were no plates. Spoke to the Manager who was most helpful saying that this was the norm now, he however did manage to find a couple of plates but will think twice about eating in there again .

“New cafe but old habits”
Reviewed 4 April 2014 via mobile

Sad to say that having been a longstanding customer of this cafe, the new well planned and improved appearance is not carried through in the service.The delays in service are not improving and result in warm not hot drinks once you get to sit down. The service process is laborious and not well thought through to ensure a speedy transition. The food has a new style of presentation. Remember to ask for sauces etc as these don't come on the table and you can be up and down to a communal area to get simple things such as a sugar cube. Come on Waitrose, the quality of food is good but you need to give the complete package.

“Lovely but expensive food.”
Reviewed 11 January 2014

We enjoy having a good cup of coffee In the cafe, the food seems a bit expensive, so we stick with a shared cake.

“It is what you would expect from a supermarket cafe”
Reviewed 8 January 2014

It is a convenient place to visit with small children on journeys from Surrey to Norfolk. Food is suitable for them and we have options which we like too.
