Ever since my second year at UEA, I have been a huge fan of Caley’s Cocoa Cafe in Norwich – the tea room in the flint-clad Guildhall on Gaol Hill – because it is so traditional. With sturdy pillars, white table clothes and fresh flowers, it’s typically English and a great place to stop for lunch.
Their homemade cakes are always delicious, especially their warm chocolate brownies, washed down with pot of hot tea. In fact, their hot chocolate with whipped cream is perfect on a day like today, when it’s so cold outside.
You can buy Caley’s hot chocolate mix to take home with you too, although it won’t taste as good as drinking it there! Their range of handmade chocolates are also very beautiful and make a perfect gift for a loved one. Not only that, but you can also buy Caley’s mugs, decorated with retro packaging and posters, which will make ideal Christmas presents.
A second cafe in Norwich
A new Cocoa Cafe recently opened up on White Lion Street, which is much smaller than the other, but just as cosy and warm. It’s right next door to Primark in the city centre, so it’s the perfect place to stop for a break while out shopping.
