PUBLISHED: 11:31 26 June 2018
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
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.
