I originally visited this café during a cake road trip around North Norfolk. Despite being stuffed (from the three slices of cake eaten in one morning), I had lunch there and was absolutely blown away by the interesting menu and delicious food. Fast forward to a few months later when we were looking for somewhere to take a family member for lunch and instantly thought of this little gem. It was only at this point that we realise the Art Café is a vegetarian restaurant.

The fact that we didn’t notice a veggie-only menu on the first visit just goes to show how amazing this place is. There’s a huge amount of variety on a menu that changes regularly and it’ll please both vegetarians and meat-eaters alike.


My most recent visit was born of a need for internet when I had none in the office. With free Wi-Fi, delicious food and Grey Seal Coffee, the Art Café was the sensible choice.


I had the selection of salads while Nell tucked into the green parcels in a tomato sauce. Both meals were lovely. I can also highly recommend the hummus, cheese pâté, curry and selection of cakes.

The drinks on offer are fantastic too. You can’t go wrong with Grey Seal Coffee, in all its forms but there are also some interesting teas and soft drinks on offer too.


If all that wasn’t enough, the café is actually part shop too. You’ll be able to find everything from vintage clothes and Norfolk-made jewellery, to trinkets and homewares. The walls are adorned with art too so if you’re looking for something beautiful and local for your home, you’re in the right place.
