    Frankies Snack Bar

    The aforementioned Frankies snack bar is hoping to open Wednesday evenings as "bike night" in the summer this year

    Should be good place to get-together, talk about bikes and grab a cuppa on a summers evening. Hopefully gather some support for charitable events too.

    I'll gives this a try too - Hartford Marina is too close to home; hardly seems worth riding there sometimes.

    Another good value for money is No.7 on Beach Station Road Felixstowe at the Mannings end of the sea front.
    It is only open Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

    Thumbs up Top cafes

    My suggestions are..

    Already said but a god one, A149 north norfolk Brancaster Staithe, Great breakfast rolls, nice staff.

    Wells Deli on the main Quay. Just watch the parking charge!! There is bike parking but i never pay. Just lucky maybe!

    The best one is at Blakeney Quay. Great caravan only open int he summer but early risers. Open at about 7 and on a sunny morning is a stunning setting, Nice wifey and grumpy husband which is as you would expect a husband and wife team!!!

    Enjoy!

    Finchingfield

    There`s a nice cafe at Finchingfield, the name of which escapes me now, but when you get there, it`s the one with all the bikes parked up!. I go Sundays, and usually find a good gathering of bikers. If you get there late, you`ll have a wait for your breakfast, and if its after 12 you`ll miss out as they switch to teas/cakes etc in afternoon. There`s a nice bit of road from Sible hedingham to Finchingfield, and another one from Bocking to Finchingfield.

    If its a hot day, there`s a shop next door doing lovely icecreams

    Just watch out for the sunny-Sunday wannabees on sports bikes who think they can ride like Rossi.

    This summer I have mostly been drinkin coffee at...

    1, Sizewell Beach Cafe. Lovely bit of beach and surprisingly warm on chilly days...

    2, Wilkins Jam Factory at Tiptree, not far from Finchingfield. The gentleman motorcyclists afternoon tea. Great lunches too.

    3, Horsey Mere N Norfolk. Tiny National Trust 'hut' serves warm stuff. Nice benches beside the staithe. One of the few places I can happily claimto be the hardest person around (like the Theatre Royal in Norwich)

    4. Southwold Pier - choice of styles of food & wets. Chippy is crap.

    5. Wells Deli - parking IS free for bikes in the bit near the Harbour office.


    Nothing too greasy there but nice plaes largely avoided by power rangers at weekends. All approved by Mrs Badger too.

    wonder why I have a weight issue....

    And on Mondays or when the Captains cabin is busy you can try Debs Diner which is situated on the first major bend out of Burnham O C, or the last bend before approaching Burnham O C.
    This one is open 7 days a week and the food is plentiful, all day breakfasts and proper dinners served. Suitable for full sized Tossers.

    Bircham Windmill, Great Bircham, PE316SJ

    Hi, this is a very friendly Tea Room and Bakery where anybody on two wheels is made to feel welcome, great cakes, coffee etc, good view from the top of the mill but can be tough on a hot day in leathers!
    Roads are nice and twisty too on the way there.

    10 mins to Sandringham, 10 mins to Hunstanton.
