The cafe in North Lodge Park has become established as a super place in Cromer for coffee and cakes, getting regular 5 star reviews on Tripadviser and Google, and shortlisted in 2019 for the best coffee shop in Norfolk.. The cafe is run by volunteers with profits going towards the park - over 5 years we've raised thousands to invest in the park.

Would you like to volunteer in the cafe, joining the great team who make the cafe such a success. If you're more of a cake baker than a barista we also need you as all our tasty cakes are home-baked by our team.

If you want to know more come along to the cafe next Thursday morning (13th February) for a coffee and chat, or email lucy@northlodgepark.org.uk for more details.
