Once a humble Donkey shed, Cliff Top Café in Overstrand has come a long way since it was originally established in 1925. Owner Lorraine has been in charge for the past 5 years and most notably the Cliff Top Café recently (Nov 2011) placed 6th in The Times ’30 Best Places For Tea’ list. Need we say more?
Well… along with the Tea, Cream Teas and vast range of fruit teas, the Cliff Top Café offers good value for money, wholesome, home cooked food. Cooked to order, it is not fast food. But it is well worth any wait.
Inviting and spotlessly clean (they hold 5 stars for Hygiene), the inside bears all the hallmarks of a traditional tearooms or café. The unpretentious vibe will appeal to all generations from all walks of life. Families with children are welcome, as are dogs. The Menu is full of time-honoured classics, from the sandwich fillings to the presence of Horlicks, Ovaltine and Bovril. Fantastic after a bracing coastal stroll on a chilly day.
Until Noon, you’ll get big breakfasts (including a vegetarian breakfast). From noon onwards, enjoy delicious home-cooked lunches such as Steak Pie, Fish Pie, Lamb Shanks or Cottage Pie (to name but a few). There are also also 3 vegetarian options on the menu each day. Throughout the day there are cakes, toasted teacakes, soup and salads.
Last but not least, the location of this café (quite literally on Overstrand’s cliff tops) makes it a fantastic place to visit. Perfectly placed to rest and refresh after a walk along the beach from Cromer, sit outside for stunning views out to sea. Not a bad side to go with your tea and cake…
