Coffee & cake at The Window Coffee

Posted In: Life | Life in Norfolk

The Window Coffee – 25 Wensum Street. Norwich.

Rich and I love an easy start to the weekend. One of our favourite things to do is to grab a coffee and pootle into town to do some shopping or have a wander around. Last weekend was no exception; we stopped by this tiny little cafe in Norwich called The Window Coffee. It looks cute, doesn’t it? I love the tall windows, the wooden bench outside and the fact that they often have inspirational messages written on a black board near the entrance. I always make sure to check what their message of the day is because it always seems to strike a chord with me.

More importantly, the barista Hayley makes a really good latte, just like I like them: rich, smooth, not too strong and not too weak. I wish I could comment on the other coffees she prepares but I always order the same because it’s just perfect for me. On naughty days, I’ll treat myself to one of their scrumptious cakes. They’re baked fresh everyday by local baker Ruth and the selection changes all the time so I guess you’ll just have to keep coming back to see what they have! This time, both Rich and I tried the granola bar. They were melting-in-your-mouth delicious. What more to ask for on a beautiful Saturday morning?

Next time you fancy a good cup of coffee and a yummy treat, you know where to go!

    the outside of this place is entirely charming. i usually just make coffee at home, but now that all my boys are in school i think i will be treating myself to some quiet mornings in coffee shops more often.
