First Review by NorwichVeggie

Small is beautiful - Edit

This is a great little find on a back street in Norwich's Golden Triangle. Very small - with no kitchen to speak of on site, but with two big windows looking onto the quiet residential streets.

I've not explored much of the menu, coming here just for coffee and cake from time to time, and although the almond cheesecake was incredible it must be said that there are better places in Norwich for coffee. However for raw food aficionados, I imagine the Nectar is a must-visit.

The only negative is as much a reflection of myself as much as the café. I'm just so bored of veggie/vegan cafés that reflect these culinary choices in shabby chic furniture, scratchy-glaze crockery etc. The Nectar also received a comparatively low (for Norwich) 3/5 rating after its last hygiene inspection by Norwich City Council.

However, still a beautiful little spot to spend a sunny afternoon.

Pros: Norwich's only raw food café, Tempting guilt-free cakes and sweets

Cons: Tired décor

Great food, great atmosphere. - Edit

Lovely little (2 tables and a bar) vegetarian cafe serving sandwiches, dips, cakes and soups. Food is mostly vegan (the only exception being the option of cows milk in hot drinks, although dairy-free alternatives are available) and raw food, including interesting cakes and flapjacks.

The staff are friendly and knowledgeable about ingredients and methods of preparation of the food. Lots of interesting local information and books about raw food, veganism and vegetarianism.

We visited on a Thursday lunchtime and there were just a couple of other people in the cafe, the wait for food was only about 10 minutes but I understand that at weekends it can get a bit busier and the wait can be longer.

Prices are reasonable for the quality of the food.

Pros: Friendly, helpful staff, nice vibe., Tasty food., Lots of intersting reading material.

Cons: Waiting times may be long at weekends.
