    New "biker friendly" cafe opening on A11

    Opens on the 21st March on the northbound carriage way just past Attleborough (opposite Mr D's Diner and the BP/M&S garage) on the site next to the Shell garage where the Burger King was 8-10 years ago.

    They are also seeking a licence for a motorcycle franchise apparently. Not sure what brand but apparently something not currently available in Norfolk.

    Maybe do a East Anglia meet there to check it out and meet a few new faces?

    Would also be nice to show support to the new owners who have apparently been motorcyclists for 40 years.

    Very interesting!!
    If you are not living on the edge, you are taking up too much room.

    With Haywards no longer in the picture as franchises go it would make sense.

    Popped into the new cafe over the Easter weekend. Can definitely recommend the bacon baps!!

    It was very biker friendly and welcoming but lacked a bit of atmosphere. It could do with some background music and wi-fi. These may well be things in the pipeline though as it hadn't been opened that long.

    I called in this afternoon, friendly people behind the counter, large clean eating and seating area. I was the only customer in.

    Neat touch with a rack of lockers that will take gear and helmets in the entrance hall way.

    Shop empty, due to open sometime soonish. Car parking in front of windows in the eating area, bike parking around the side with no
    view from inside. That is not going to work for me.
    Its not like it used to be on here is it

    Either way it would be good to have an East Anglia meet.

    They have a fair but smallish range of clothing etc but got right royally f*cked about trying to get my son some boots. I won't bother going back there. Shame really.
