Whether you’re a five-cups-a-day, can’t-live-without it person or someone who prefers to get their caffeine hit with a more mellow mocha, there’s no denying the allure of the smell of a fresh cup of coffee. Luckily for us, Norwich is chock-a-block with passionate coffee purveyors. Check out the posts below or view the Coffee layer of the NorEats map.

Mitre, Earlham Rd

Lemon cake at Mitre, Earlham Rd, NorEats

The top aim at Mitre is simple, so simple that they made a hashtag for it: to create #APublicHome. And when we visited on one sunny spring day, a home is exactly what it felt like, with comfy sofas, big slices of cake, and a range of nooks and corners to suit everyone. Read More

Aroma, Upper King St

Tucked into a little listed building on King St, Aroma could be easy to miss, but you’d be a fool to walk past. Before you even get to the food and drink, you’ll be greeted by some of the friendliest cafe staff in the city, and then by an extensive array of food and drinks to choose from. Keeping it a local affair, Aroma uses coffee from Smokey Barn, which is based further down King St. And when the sun goes down – or, you know, any time before that, we’re not judging – the cafe/bar offers a range of cocktails, some evergreen, like the the espresso martini, and some seasonal, such as the Fireball chai.

Bread Source, Upper St Giles

If you use social media, you’ll know about Bread Source already. You’ll have seen the window display of viennoiserie; you’ll have imagined whiling away an afternoon at that big wooden table, watched over by artfully trailing plants. The bright, carefully curated interior is absolute catnip for Instagrammers – to the point that the staff don’t even glance in your direction as you square up your shot. Read More

The NorEats Map

What can I say? The list of places to try in Norwich got too long – it spiralled out beyond just the old favourites, and the cafes and restaurants that have popped up over the last few years. This fine city has gone through a massive amount of change in recent years, having gained a plethora of coffee shops, posher restaurants, and, praise be to the food gods, ice cream shops. Norwich has so much to offer, a map was the only way forward. And so followed NorEats.

NorEats brings together the food and drink the fine city of Norwich has to offer, from coffee shops to gin joints, cafes to swanky restaurants.

Timberhill Bakery, Timber Hill

Superfood toastie at Timberhill Bakery, Timber Hill, Norwich

It’d be easy to fall in love with Timberhill Bakery on the strength of those big windows, minimalist Scandi-style interior, and organic coffee alone: but none of that is what the bakery is really about. Read More
