147 Magdalen Street
Breakfast menu served all day
A great cafe on Magdalen Street in Norwich that had been recommended to me a number of times so I decided to give it a try and so should you, it was so good I went back a second time.
Upon entering - It is a large cafe which feels great the moment you enter, plenty of tables layed out nicely and very clean. Each table has a menu and is equipped with everything you need, the atmosphere feels good and you feel straight away that the food is going to be special. 9/10
Service - The friendly waitress takes your order at the table with a smile and comes back to check everything is ok. It's nice to be served by somebody who seems to enjoy their job and cares about their customers. 9/10
Content - A number of breakfast options are available including vegetarian, I will focus on the Bumper breakfast. 2 sausages, 2 bacon, fried egg, hash brown, mushrooms, beans, tomato, fried bread and toast or bread & butter. 8/10
Presentation - Top stuff! 10/10
The food - Good quality pork sausages, tasty bacon, perfect fried egg, perfect hash brown, nice fresh mushrooms, good quality beans, grilled tomato (OK but I always prefer tinned) Fried bread was not so good, it seemed lightly fried and a bit soft in places. Lovely soft white bread and real butter, perfect for bacon sarnies. 7/10
Value for money - Expensive but quality of food and service makes it feel worth it, you will struggle to finish the bumper breakfast. 7/10
Veggie option - Yes
Overall - Well worth a visit and good food & service. On my second visit I tried the standard breakfast which was equally as good. I will be back there soon! 9/10

This time I went for the traditional breakfast and added extra black pudding for 95p. The food and service was fantastic again and this time round I noticed the entire breakfast menu is served all day!
