If you’re looking for a caffeine hit that’s a little more weird and wonderful than your standard flat white, look no further than the oh-so-trendy Alchemista. Read More
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
It’s not often that you find a menu that has equal focus on meat dishes and vegetarian and vegan alternatives – but that’s exactly what you can expect at House on St Benedicts. Read More
Another week, another kickass coffee place in Norwich. This time, we’re heading slightly away from the centre to King St, which has been home to Smokey Barn for a few years now. Read More
If the headlines are to be believed, young people in particular love houseplants and going out for coffee – which makes Cafe Jungle, part of Urban Jungle in Old Costessey, the place to be. Read More
It’s no secret that here at NorEats we’re suckers for a good coffee and a pastry. Throw in the words “locally sourced” and “homemade” and we’re 100% sold. And so it is with Little Red Roaster, the family of coffee shops that have some of the biggest croissants we’ve seen, in addition to an evolving seasonal menu. Read More
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.
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
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.
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
