Been away from Sheringham for a while and popped into the coffee house for a coffee this weekend. Wow, they've really changed the menu. The range of food on offer now has something for everyone, and the delicious pictures tempted me to try their breakfast bap. I'm so glad I didn't just settle for the coffee I'd planned on. I'll...

Thanks for dropping by JohnM. Glad you enjoyed the breakfast bap. The menu is a work in progress, but we're very happy to be offering some extra choices over the bog standard cafe fayre. We have something in the pipeline that will dwarf the Engine Driver, so bring the family next time :) More

Visited after trip on the North Norfolk Railway which is very close by. Had coffee, not too bad but have had better. Crab sandwich was excellent as was a Panini that my wife had. Staff were pleasant and helpful. Typical coffee shop surroundings. I would certainly call again if in the area.

Hi Paulvaj, thanks for the positive review. Glad you enjoyed your food, but looks like we need to work harder on the coffee. I have been wanting to get some specialist barista training sorted for my newer staff, but haven't yet got round to it. Maybe it's time :) More

the coffee was good hot and pleasant the cheese scones were very good and ample size with a large potion of butter. The waitress Ellie was very pleasant and helpful we would use this café again when we go to Sheringham having the added bonus of being able to take our dog there. Reading the menu it was nice to...

Thanks for the lovely review HoneyBee2854. Glad to see you read my menu blurb, you always wonder if anyone does :) Ellie will be chuffed that she got a personal mention and will give her a boost during her exams over the next few weeks. Hopefully next visit, you'll have a little more time and can try some of the... More

We visited this cafe last year because it is dog friendly and were quite happy with the service and quality of food. We revisited in May with a couple of friends (and dogs) and were quite disappointed with the standard of food this time. Things seem to have gone down hill The staff were still friendly and helpful but we... More

Hi, thanks for your review. I'm sorry that you were disappointed with the standard of food, which comes as a bit of a shock as we have worked hard to move from relying on frozen supermarket produce, to making full use of fresh local ingredients. We're currently broadening our menu options and have big plans for the cafe, so please... More

The Coffee House Cafe is conveniently located adjacent to the main town car park and opposite one of Sheringham's main attractions the Poppy Line Steam Railway. They have a range of tasty snacks which you can eat indoors or outside under shelter - useful if raining and you have your dog with you

Thank you for your review. We always appreciate our customer comments. All our tasty snacks and meals are prepared from fresh ingredients onsite. I believe we're the only cafe in the area with a dedicated baker who creates some wonderfully tempting treats. We have some changes in the pipeline that should mean that future customers can further enjoy the Poppy... More

Visited this coffee shop whilst in Sheringham wishing a good coffee and possible a snack. It was just after 9am and had seen two coffee shops still closed. I had heard it had recently changed hands and wanted to give the place a chance to see if the quality had gotten any better.. Asked the female serving for 2 x... More

Thank you for your review. Apologies for the spilt Mocha, that should have been rectified. However, on your other points; Mocha, by it's very nature is a very sweet drink, so I can't see why you were expecting any different flavour. Coffee from independent stores is also a subjective point. If you frequent the large coffee chains, you'll get a... More

We visited this Bank Holiday Monday, after taking our son to the Thomas and Friends event - we've previously been in, and enjoyed a slice of cake and coffee and thought it was the perfect place to get some lunch.

Always a pleasant place to pop into. Good breakfast, tasty snacks and good solid homemade cooking with daily and seasonal menu choices. This is a friendly, local place to eat or take a short break when travelling. It sits right by the bus interchange, near the railway and opposite the main car park. Obviously the place gets busy in the... More

Hi Tim, Thanks for taking the time to give us a positive review. We try to stay open as long as possible, but it's all dependent on how many people are "floating" around the area. In off-season, or when the weather reporters mention a "cold snap", we suffer badly from reduced traffic in Sheringham, and there's only so much stuff... More

Good selection of home baking and cooked food. Can be very busy due to location close to Steam Railway so expect to wait for service.

Thanks for your review Mimi A. We're working hard to cut down waiting times, but as you say, we can get very busy, and as everything is cooked to order, wait times are inevitable. Glad you noticed that our cakes and nibbles are home baked too :) More

Excellent service. Gets very busy but still manage with short delays. There is a lot of competition in this area of business but this place has a prime spot for the buses trains and car park. Handy location when you arrive in this lovely seaside town. Always something happening and all organised by the local commite
