7. Saporita, St Andrews Hill

One of the reasons brunch is so great is because you can eat whatever you like! Both breakfast and lunch foods are included, so if you fancy something a bit more filling, why not head to Saporita for some fresh and hunger-busting pizza. Or you could go for something a bit more special and treat yourself to a taglieri – that’s a grazing board to you and me. You can get the classic, with a selection of Italian meat, cheese, olives, focaccia and more or the vegetarian option which swaps out the meat for grilled vegetables. Only £12 per person.

Dishes £3.90 – £12

8. Café 33, Exchange Street

Café 33 is a favourite haunt in Norwich for those who love their breakfasts and homemade cake. Relaxed and welcoming, Café 33 is brilliant for both families and friends. The only problem is being tempted by everything on the menu! Perhaps you’ll want to go for a nice big breakfast with sausage, bacon, mushrooms and more, or something a little more exotic like the Mexican breakfast with chorizo and guacamole? Either way, we’re sure you’ll leave with your hunger sated.

Dishes £2.50 – £9.90

9. Gem of Norwich, Thorpe Road

Did someone say bottomless brunch? Perfect for a gossip with the gals, or perhaps even to start a small hen-do, bottomless brunch has certainly proved a popular trend in recent years, and it’s one that’s here to stay. Gem of Norwich serves up fresh and homemade Mediterranean fare, so you’ll truly feel like you’re on holiday at this local spot. And there’s no better way to enjoy the food than with their bottomless brunch. Unlimited Prosecco, red, white and rosé wines, or soft drinks for 90 minutes, PLUS 5 hot meze and 5 cold meze for only £29.90 per person. Bargain.

10. Christophe’s Crêpes, Pottergate

Crêpe’s aren’t just for dessert – which you’ll soon discover on a visit to Christophe’s Crêpes. Of course, we won’t judge you going for a sweet option for brunch (we have definitely given in to the temptation of a Nutella crêpe in the morning before now), but there’s a host of savoury options too. Our favourite is the oh-mega crêpe, with hot smoked salmon, fried eggs, and avocado.
