My favourite four breakfast and brunch spots in Norwich

It's been a while since I've posted about breakfasts so I thought I'd share my 2019 list of my four personal favourite places to go for breakfast or brunch in Norwich. These places are in alphabetical order as I can never decide on a favourite. All incredible places you really should visit in Norwich!


Artel
67 London Street
Norwich
NR2 1HL

Brunch served:
Mon-Fri 8am till 2pm
Sat 9am till 3pm
Sun 10am till 2pm 
 
Artel is a great space to relax in and is dog friendly too, the menus offer good vegetarian and vegan options along side the meat dishes. Every time I've been to Artel for brunch I've chosen the fried chicken as it's exceptionally good here. The current menu features Deep fried harissa-spiced chicken, lime avocado, red pepper sauce and maple syrup on a malt waffle, superb! I also highly recommend the Fried chicken sandwich (pictured above), between the toasted brioche bun you'll find Harissa fried chicken, smashed avocado, house slaw and a fried egg. As I'm writing this though I hear Artel are about to launch a new Autumn/Winter menu. It will feature a Weekday/Saturday brunch menu and a different Sunday menu which will include an Artel fry up. I'll report back on this once the new menu has been launched.

Breakfast served:
Mon-Sat 8am till 2.30pm
Sun 9.30am till 11.30am

The Ber Street Kitchen has grown from strength to strength in it's first year to become an incredibly popular breakfast spot in NR1. On a recent visit I noticed how the Full English had been tweaked slightly and is now better than ever. The beans are now served on the plate due to popular demand and the breakfast also includes black pudding bon bons, these are so good! The meats served here are by Swannington Farm to Fork and if you're lucky you may even get served a double yolk egg. The menu also features a selection of hash dishes and plenty of vegan and vegetarian options. There's a garden out the back and it's dog friendly too so be sure to give them a visit if you haven't already been. I also hear they serve the best Sunday roast in Norwich!

Breakfast served:
Tues-Fri 9am till 2.15pm
Sat 8am till 2.15pm
 
I've been talking about breakfast at Olives for many years now and it's often described as the best Full English breakfast in the country! The vegetarian and vegan breakfasts here are as creative as the meat version and there's a Gluten Free breakfast on the menu too. What makes this breakfast stand out from the others is the use of streaky bacon, a homemade bubble & squeak patty and it's distinctive presentation. The cafe is dog friendly and gets very busy so my advice is to arrive early if possible. I'd also advice ordering the exceptional black and white pudding by Fruit Pig Co, the best puddings out there in my opinion!

Breakfast served:
Mon-Sat 8am till 3.30pm
Sun 9am till 1.30pm

The Street Cafe is my local and I've been coming here for many years now because the service is exceptional and their Full English breakfasts are out of this world! The menu features meat, vegan and vegetarian breakfasts in different sizes and there's even the option to build your own. The presentation is perfect every time and Andy cooks the best ever fried eggs which are locally sourced free range eggs from P J Southgate. Archers of Norwich supply the meats used on this breakfast (best sausages on the planet!) and the black and white pudding comes from Fruit Pig Co. The bread is from Ketts Hill Bakery and the beans by Heinz which makes up this magnificent breakfast. If you haven't been to the Street Cafe yet then I suggest you check it out as soon as possible, love this place!
