Based at the former Britannia Barracks with spectacular views over Norwich, Café Britannia is a shabby chic café offering freshly cooked British cuisine. We are open 7 days a week and the café is staffed by a mixture of civilian staff and category D low risk prisoners, that have volunteered to learn new skills, improve their lives and make a fresh start.
We have an ethos towards community spirit and engagement. We love Norwich and Norfolk and for that reason we have a buy local approach. For us the whole café forms part of a reciprocal relationship with our customers and food and drink retailers in Norwich.
Please come and pay us a visit, for breakfast and start your day in style with our cooked king sized breakfast portions.
Or if you’re a late riser, join us for a Vintage Afternoon Tea. Served daily from 2:30pm this delicious treat includes a selection of sandwiches, mouth watering cakes and succulent scones baked fresh in hous.
Or if you are out and about for evening service, bring a bottle, you will not get better views in Norwich.
Café Britannia is a social enterprise offering training, rehabilitation and employment to current and ex offenders.
All tips generated from the café are donated to Victim Support charity to assist victims of crime.
