We stopped here for a quick brew about half an hour before they closed. This cafe is really small but as this was such a beautiful day the four or so tables outside were full of customers enjoying the sun so we had to go inside. They advertised loose leaf teas but the Assam tea wasn't available and the waitress... More

This is exactly the kind of cafe you want to find in a lovely market town. Delicious coffee, tea and croissants and incredibly kind and helpful people,who run it. They had seating outside and on a bright March morning, many were. Lunch looked delicus too but I was too early!

We had a walk round the Meer and castle then wandered round town looking for somewhere for lunch. This little place is friendly and slightly quirky with such a tasty menu we were spoilt for choice. There is a good selection of veggie offerings plus some with meat and a range of tempting cakes-incl gluten free. Lovely paintings and furnishings... More

We visited this cafe last time we were in the area too and it has not changed. Their hot chocolate with marshmallows and cream is lovely. We had toasted ciabatta. Mine had goats cheese with pesto and sun dried tomatoes. My husband had ham, cheese and mustard. They were both great. The staff are very polite and very welcoming. Will... More

A cute, cozy cafe ideally located in the central market square area. Only a 5-10 min walk down the road from Framlingham Castle (which is also well worth a visit). Limited seating indoors (no more than 18-19 places), and more offered seating outside however. Lovely, attentive staff served us on the day. I and my companion ended up sharing a... More

The outside chairs get the sun all day and it is lovely to sit outside and enjoy an excellent coffee. Unfortunately not much space inside, which could be a problem in bad weather. Friendly staff (and customers! ) . A good place to relax and enjoy coffee and cake.

Popped in for a light lunch on Tuesday and so glad we did - had a superb meal. We were tempted in by the idea of the beetroot and feta burger and it didn't disappoint, neither did my husband's butternut squash and spinach parcel - both were wonderfully tasty and exceptional value for money. This is a real gem in... More

This is our second visit while away on our holiday. The coffee is to die for especially the Capaccino when sitting on the bench outside watching the world go by .

Yes, it's cramped inside and the tables outside slope, but it has no pretensions - it is a tiny café where the standards are high and the cooking imaginative and good ( e.g. a beetroot and feta burger that was superb. The cakes are good too and they are generous with the tea. I've been here on three occasions, and... More
