Word on the streets of the best sweet treats

From macarons to doughnuts, cupcakes to pastries, we certainly have a sweet tooth here at LIFC HQ! Here are some of the city’s mouthwatering favourites that we just cannot say no to.

Artel, London Street, Norwich, NR2 1HL

A highlight of Artel’s latest menu is the vegan banana bread. Served with fresh banana, peanut butter, coconut ice cream, passion fruit coulis, toasted seeds, crushed nuts and lime, it’s a delight!

Figbar, 23 St John Maddermarket, Norwich, NR2 1DN

Easy on the eye and on the tastebuds too, Figbar have a sumptuous range of sweet treats prepared in store daily. The Amaretti Cheesecake featured here is a particular favourite.

Ber Street Kitchen, 141-143 Ber Street, Norwich, NR1 3EY

A recent addition to the wonderful independent cafe’s of Norwich, the cakes from Ber street Kitchen are scrumptious! After a recent taste test, we highly recommend the Carrot Cake and the Lime and Polenta!

Bread Source, 93 Upper St Giles Street, Norwich, NR2 1AB

From freshly baked bread to something sweet, we love nothing more than sitting in the window of St Gile’s Streets’ Bread Source with a coffee and irresistible pastry!
