After a night of indulgence, nothing beats a long brunch with a big cup of coffee. Here we pick some great places in Norwich to try

No 33

33 Exchange Street

No 33 is known for its big slices of cake, good coffee and a brunch menu that’s packed with substantial dishes made from local Norfolk ingredients. Sweet-toothed patrons can opt for the toasted muesli sundae drizzled in honey or a stack of American style pancakes.

Go all out with the No 33’s big breakfast consisting of two rashers of bacon, two pork sausages, two poached eggs, roasted tomatoes, grilled mushroom, baked beans and sourdough toast. For something a little different, there’s the Mexican style breakfast with chorizo sausages, fried eggs, guacamole, and chunky salsa with sourdough toast.

Brunch is served all day

Woolf & Social

21-23 Nelson Street

At Woolf & Social, “everything is artisan” including décor, wine and the food served up for hungry patrons. This friendly restaurant on Nelson Street serves inspired dishes for those days when you missed breakfast but you’re too early for lunch.

Order a plate of ham hock hash with a fried egg or raved-about smacked cucumbers from the brunch menu at Woolf & Social.

Brunch is served Friday to Sunday from 10.30am

Frank’s Bar

19 Bedford Street

Casual and sociable, Frank’s Bar is a favourite hang out for city-dwellers and is particularly good after a night of excess.

With brunch options including spicy sausage with baked eggs, peppers and Tabasco served with focaccia, you can say goodbye to your hangover!

Brunch is served 9am until 3pm

7-9 Fye Bridge Street

Sister to Frank’s is North on Fye Bridge St. With a brunch menu featuring hearty dishes such as chickpeas with chorizo, feta and curly kale served with baked eggs; or smoked mackerel on toasted sourdough bread with pickled beetroot and horseradish yoghurt, you will leave feeling satisfied and ready to take on the day.

Brunch is served 9.30am until 2.30pm

The Bicycle Shop

17 St Benedicts Street

Cosy, stylish, bohemian interiors and tasty grub on the brunch menu, the Bicycle Shop on St Benedicts Street is a laid back place to enjoy a lazy brunch.

Check the board as brunch specials change often. Past dishes have included the Bicycle Shop Baked Bean Burrito with guacamole and sour cream; and a black pudding, bacon and potato hash with poached eggs and toast, yum!

Brunch is served every day until around 5pm (except Sunday)

The Cherry Leaf

50 St Giles Street

On pretty St Giles Street is The Cherry Leaf coffee shop, housed in a regal Georgian building and serving freshly brewed coffee and tempting cakes.

The weekday breakfast/brunch menu consists of light options such as porridge with mixed berries, seeds and a drizzle of maple syrup; but the weekend menu is augmented with dishes such as the hearty Cherryleaf breakfast which consists of two rashers of local bacon, two sausages, two poached eggs, mushroom, tomato, baked beans, and toast with butter – phew!

Served until midday

The Green Grocers

2-4 Earlham House Shops, Earlham Road

With coffee sourced from local producer Strangers, The Green Grocers ensures a great cup of java alongside your brunch.

Choose from huge fried breakfasts with meat, vegetarian and vegan options available. You can also order eggs and salmon on toast, muesli, granola, smoothies, toast and more.

Brunch is served all day

Louis’ Deli

81 Upper St Giles Street

Fry ups, smashed avocado and poached egg on toast, filled English muffins, pastries, porridge, pancakes and good coffee – all this is available on the brunch menu at Louis’ Deli.

With a rustic farmhouse feel, and tucked away on the pretty Upper St Giles Street, Louis Deli is packed with deli goodies both local and from further afield. This is perfect to stock up on supplies for the weekend.

Brunch is served from 8am until 3pm
