EM&F are delighted to present to the market a rarely available opportunity to acquire a well known and long established cafe set on a substantial plot of land together with an attached 3 bedroom family home which enjoys stunning views over the neighbouring open countryside.

Having been in the current owners hands for the past 14 years and the owners prior to that some 27 years it is quite clear that the business has worked well and been a success for these families. It is unusual for a freehold cafe to come onto the market with residential accommodation attached particularly one as long established and well regarded as this.

Offering many options for further extending both the business and the residential property this really has to be viewed to fully appreciate the extent of what is now available. As such we would urge you to contact us to arrange a viewing at your earliest convenience.


This award winning cafe is ideally situated on the main Norwich to Wroxham road meaning it benefits from not only the many local customers that regularly call in but also the passing tourist trade heading to the Norfolk Broads. Currently turning over in excess of £150k p.a year on year this figure is expected to increase this year due to changes within the business and in years to come by the planned new housing (some c. 3,000 new units) developments that are due to commence in very close proximity to the cafe.

The mainstay of the business is its breakfast service, although the café also has a reputation for providing high quality home prepared meals at a very competitive price provided for by the extensive, modern and very well fitted out commercial kitchen that the current owners have installed. It also means that an evening bistro service could easily be provided for should a new owner so wish.

The cafe currently provides for 28 covers inside with a further 14 on an outside covered and heated veranda with remote operated blinds to one side. This provides an interesting and popular seating area which could be further developed. With the surrounding space and outbuildings there are a number of ways in which the commercial element could be extended and the vendors have advised that they have already had plans drawn up in this regard which can be made available to the new owner.


The commercial kitchen has had a full programme of renovation and measures in the region of 7.3m x 4.0m with an extensive range of fittings including a full extraction unit above a six-ring gas cooker with oven below, a large griddle with a smaller second griddle and two fryers. There are various fridges, freezers, microwaves, toasters, Bain Maries and such like with three sinks and drainers, a dishwasher, hot water urn, and plenty of stainless-steel work surfaces. The kitchen is finished with hard wearing slip resistant flooring and has hygienic plastic cladding to the walls and ceiling.

The internal cafe area is approximately 9.4m x 3.0m with a selection of table and chairs, cold cabinet and service point above with door through to the veranda seating area. There is in turn a further external seating area with bench seating and a customer toilet is also provided for. Within the commercial grounds is a brick built storage shed together with two additional timber sheds again providing space which could be further utilised if required.

The car park is extensive providing more than is necessary space for customer parking and again there is much scope for development of this area subject to any required consents.

The charming attached family home provides three bedrooms, bathroom with separate bath and shower, through lounge, dining room and good sized kitchen. The newly fitted kitchen has a good range of quality units fitted with plinth lighting and spotlights above and utility room off. There is also a large breakfast bar with seating for 4 -6 people looking out through the patio doors onto the large private garden and across the open countryside beyond.

A wonderful opportunity to acquire a long established and proven business with delightful accommodation included.
