There are a lot of new coffee shops opening up around Norwich and it’s easy to lose track on the latest openings.
However, Bread Source is a place you really need to experience.
Not only do they have “all you can eat toast” on offer if you are eating in, you can have all you can drink filter coffee (or one speciality coffee from their espresso menu) for just £4.50.
Such a great option for a slightly different breakfast or brunch option in Norwich.
This comes complete with access to a DIY toaster machine which just made your brunch plans so much more fun!
This is a classy, playful take on a local bakery, nestled between antique and art shops on Upper St Giles Street.
The modern, simplistic communal dining space to the left of the shop front allows you to cosy up for some bread and coffee-based comfort for a while, whilst the right hand side of the shop offers an honest and open bakery for takeaway produce.
The shelves on the wall proudly boast a variety of freshly baked loaves and the low shelf display encourages you to pick up a pair of tongs to squirrel away sweet, buttery pastries that might not make it for tomorrow’s breakfast tray…
Their mission is to bring hand crafted, additive free, wholesome bread to the towns of Norfolk.
Bread Source produces baked goods for local hotels, delis, cafes and markets as well as their own shops.
Just one of many pointers if you’re elsewhere in the city is to head to The Little Red Roaster to enjoy a sandwich made with their bread if you can’t make it to the Bread Source shop. I visited recently and slipped into this independent coffee shop to grab some lunch, enjoying a quick nibble on their barbecue chicken and mozzarella on toasted granary bread – it was delicious.
If you head to Bread Source for a takeaway loaf, I can personally recommend the granola loaf, which is sweet and sticky, just the perfect Sunday night loaf to enjoy toasted with lashings of jersey butter (or your favourite jam) and copious pots of tea after a busy weekend of mini adventures.
Their sweet and very sugary cinnamon buns are also the ideal breakfast-on-the-go before an epic dog walk in the Norfolk countryside.
In fact, I just want to sample every single treat on their shelves, their pastries are some of the most beautiful works of sweet art I’ve ever seen – I’ll be back very soon for more taste testing!

I think more attention to detail is required for their coffee’s, yesterday my wife and I had a cappuccino each, mine was fine but hers was served in a cup little bigger than an espresso cup. Given the prices I think that a bigger cup should have been used, and there should be consistency of the same product side by side. We left somewhat disappointed and wondering if we would return.
