Staycation North Norfolk: Rocket House Cafe, Cromer

The Rocket House Café in Cromer is another one of the cafés I keep vowing to try one day and never have gotten around to it, until now. It is situated above the Henry Blogg Museum and has fantastic views out over the beach. On a good day you can sit outside on the balcony and watch the crabbing boats come in. On a not so good day there is still some outside seating that is a little bit sheltered so you can still sit and see the water and the pier. We visited TWICE, on a not so good day and sat inside and on a beautiful day and managed to snag a table outside. Both times the food was great, service friendly and quick, and the coffee perfect. 

On both snack time visits I had a decaf latte and a enormous cheese scone. Both times I was very very happy with my selection. The scones were HUGE and very cheesy, and the coffee was strong and hot. 

Lyra is a sucker for a "cwasant" (croissant) with butter and jam and she was very happy with the ones she had at the Rocket House Cafe. They were warm, soft and oh so crumby! She is getting better at hoovering up her croissant crumbs though so there wasn't much evidence left when we got up to leave. Dad enjoyed the homemade cakes (Victoria Sponge and a Chocolate Fudge Cake) and the coffee too. 

The Rocket House Café breakfast menu looks very nice (local bacon and sausages), as do the lunch and Saturday evening menus. I'm really  happy to have finally visited here and am looking forward to our return visit in the Autumn. 

Highchairs available and easy access to baby changing facilities. They are also happy to heat baby food (with the disclaimer that it will be hot).
