I'm, not a regular to Norwich probably 6-7 times a year but every time I do go I make a point of going up the lanes for a look around. There are some cool independent shops up there and the church antique shop is a must. Strangers Coffee House is literally just around the corner and a welcome break if you need a sit-down and watch the world go by. The shop roasts their own coffee beans and they are very clued up on the fine art of coffee, its tastes, flavours and profiles, that's if you are interested and need to know, otherwise just relax and enjoy your coffee.
The main thing about coffee and trust me I know I used to sell it, is that it doesn't matter how you like your coffee, there is no right way to drink coffee. Pick a style you like and Strangers will make it for you, but what you must do is try maybe a different roast like a dark Italian against an El Salvador light roast, try African beans against a Guatemala then you'll start to smell and taste the difference.
I liked drinking in there and they make you feel welcome, food is a good standard and prices are not silly, the only downside is that there's not that much room in there ( only about 4-5 tables ) the outside tables help on a sunny day.
I would always make a point of supporting any independent coffee shop against the corporate big boys and Strangers are doing a great job
I look forward to going back.
