Posh Nosh Internet Cafe on Catton Grove Road opened fairly recently.

Inside it is spacious, clean and bright with larger tables in the middle and..

Smaller tables to the side.

Great sauce bottles!

Nice milky coffee and...

A decent fry up!

I was delighted to hear about Posh Nosh Internet Cafe the other week as I was fast running out of places in Norwich to try. Before popping along there for breakfast I read an article from the local paper about how Chantelle Schlomann had opened the cafe after getting a grant from The Princes Trust (click here to read article). I wasted no time in popping along to see what she had created and of course to try the fry up!...

Upon entering - The counter and kitchen is at the back of the cafe, there are a couple of large tables running down the middle, smaller and higher tables to the side and a couple of tables outside too. Each table has a menu, salt, pepper and those fantastic sauce bottles. It is a pleasant environment to sit and spend some time in, well lit, clean and spacious. Place your order at the counter and everything is bought over to you at the table. 7/10

Service - The staff were friendly and efficient taking my order and bringing my food over when it was ready. 7/10

Contents - I went for the deluxe breakfast, It consisted of - 2 sausages, 2 bacon, 2 fried eggs, 2 hash browns, mushrooms, half a tomato, beans and a slice of toast & butter. 8/10

Presentation - Everything looked good when it arrived, plenty of colour and nicely presented. 7/10

The food - I was happy to see that the sausages were good quality and these along with the bacon were nicely cooked and tasted really good. The pair of fried eggs were also really good with nice runny yolks and went perfectly with the toast and butter. The hash browns were crisp and delicious, the tomatoes were full of flavour as were the nicely fried mushrooms. I love beans when they are quite stodgy so these for me were perfect. 8/10

Value for money - Not a huge fry up but certainly filling enough and at £5.25 it seemed a fair enough price, good quality sausages are used, all the key items were there and it was a pleasure to eat. 7/10

Veggie option - Yes, sausages can be swapped for veggie sausages.

Overall - It's still early days for Posh Nosh but from what I could see they are doing a great job and are well and truly on the right track in making the cafe a real success for many years to come. The decision to use quality sausages is a great move in my opinion and will ensure people will come back wanting more. Perhaps a large menu display and a veggie breakfast option would be a nice touch but so early in the cafe's life this may well be on the cards anyway. Posh Nosh is well worth a visit and I wish it every success for the future. 7.5/10
