About The Unthank Kitchen

yd mirrorWe are a much loved, family-owned, café right in the heart of Norwich’s ‘buzzing’ Golden Triangle area, yet close to the City Centre. Our neighbours include many small, independent shops and eating places offering a wide range of products and services for everyone.

Our customers tell us that The Unthank Kitchen is the “hub” of the local community. That’s probably why we have built a loyal “following” from students and staff from the University of East Anglia (UEA) , people living and working in the area (young and old) and local businesses.

Our traditional, yet contemporary, café has an ‘open plan kitchen’ and customers can order their food and see it being prepared in our 5 star hygiene-accredited kitchen. Our raised, outside decking area is also a great “eating space” to watch the world go by and is popular all year.

We have invested heavily over the last few years and have drastically improved the café – inside and out. We are delighted that our customers seem to like it as our business continues to grow.

Come and see us soon - you will be very welcome!
