Pandora's Kitchen

Pandora's Kitchen is fast becoming a favourite for Norwichites, we stopped by today for a quick bite and a chat with fellow local blogger Missy Vintage. The location is perfect on busy London Street, with ample seating outside for soaking up some sun and people watching. There is table service outside and in, the menus are super quaint having been bound in old books they look great.

 We were only a bit peckish today so Amber had a coffee and I opted for a 'poshage roll', a vegetarian sausage roll made with sweet potato and other lovely veg. The presentation was great, the roll itself was very tasty and being partial to a good chutney I felt this was the real test..they passed! .

After a good chin wag and a bit of dog spotting I went inside to have a look around and take some pictures, the ground floor area is full of tasty treats, I have heard the pulled pork on brioche is particularly good. There are cakes a plenty, local ice-cream from Lakenham Creamery and freshly made lemonade. So many great things to choose from, the takeaway sandwiches looked great on display in a vintage suitcase.

I was a bit jealous of all the amazing looking ciabatta sandwiches I saw being plated up, a return visit is in order me thinks! The first floor is a light and lovely tea room, with pretty furniture and decorations, this floor was busy so I continued to explore. Up another flight of stairs was another beautiful room, I noticed plenty of highchairs on the landing too so kids are very much welcome.

With tiered afternoon teas and fresh local produce being used Pandora's has cornered a niche nicely, the decor is appealing and the bustling London Street location is great for getting traffic. I think what they have achieved here is a great vintage feeling cafe without being too obvious, not a single piece of taxidermy to scare the kids!
