Whether you’re breakfasting, brunching or just looking for a quick coffee in Suffolk these are 9 places that you’re going to love

1. Pump Street Bakery, Orford

This family run artisan bakery is located on Suffolk’s charming heritage coast in Orford. Renowned in the area for its delicious home baked breads and pastries; Pump Street Bakery also houses a small café serving seasonal foods that showcase their baked delights.

Tuck into a weekend brunch from 9am with delicate loose leaf teas and the finest ground roast coffee from a seat at the communal table in the café or from the sun-drenched courtyard in the summer.

The menu is ever changing to follow the season and whatever local ingredients best complement the bakery’s breads and pastries. If you’re lucky you may even get to try their heavenly buttermilk pancakes.

2. Gastrono-me, Bury St Edmunds

Passionate about food would be an understatement when talking about Gastrono-me in Bury St Edmunds. Their eclectic menu incorporates the simple, nostalgic classics we all love with flavours from all over the world thrown in to create a truly mouth-watering myriad of dishes.

Breakfast is served daily until 12pm and this is a meal that’s taken seriously. Tuck into classics such as beans on toast and Welsh rarebit to dishes from further afield like Pain Perdu, Shakshuka, and Huevos Rancheros.

For those feeling a little bit adventurous they offer tropical breakfast mimosas with Prosecco, passion fruit and mango juice. What a way to start the day!

3. Lady Florence River Cruise Brunch, Orford

The Lady Florence is a river cruise restaurant based out of Orford that travels up the Rivers Ore and Alde. The brunch cruise takes place over the course of two and a half hours where diners will be treated to three courses of American style brunch dishes from a cooked breakfast with hash browns to American muffins and even apple pie and cream.

There will be fresh fruit juice and a fully stocked bar available throughout the cruise which runs daily, all year round regardless of the weather for just £26.95 pp. Breakfast and beautiful views, what a treat!

4. The Wild Strawberry Café, Woodbridge

Located in the centre of the picturesque Woodbridge along with some of the town’s trendiest shops, the Wild Strawberry Café is a charming spot with lots to choose from. Catering to those seeking gluten free, vegan, and nut free dishes wherever possible and offering a large selection of hearty breakfasts this is the perfect place to wile away a morning.

Their seasonal menu is made up of some of the best local produce available with dishes ranging from cooked breakfasts with all the classic components, bacon sandwiches, smashed avocado on Pump Street sourdough or just freshly buttered toast with local jam or marmalade.

5. The Lemon Tree, Framlingham

With stunning views of the Framlingham Church there are few places better located to enjoy breakfast than the Lemon Tree. With its ethos of loving local food, there is nothing more important to the team at Lemon tree than sourcing the best seasonal, local produce for its ever changing delicious menu.

Breakfast is a well practised affair with a simple menu featuring reakfast classics that we all know and love. Try a huge Suffolk cooked breakfast with local bacon, sausages, black pudding and hen’s eggs, poached eggs with smoked salmon and Pump Street toast, toasted teacakes or choose from a variety of fresh cooked omelettes with your choice of topping.

6. 221B, Framlingham

221B (that’s Two Twenty One B) is a charming, quirky bakery-cum-bistro that takes a very European approach to things. For them, a bakery is not just about buying fresh bread to take home; it’s a hub for the community to brunch, lunch, dine and relax. It’s about locally sourced ingredients, freshly prepared healthy food and the finest Italian coffee outside of Milan.

The breakfast menu is not large but what it lacks in choice it makes up for in quality and affordability. The classic ‘221B Breakfast’ features two rashers of local bacon and two local sausages with two free range eggs, baked beans and tomato all for £6. Should you be in the mood for something a bit healthier then they’ve got you covered with the ‘221B Good4Me Breakfast’ – local smoked salmon and a poached egg.

7. Two Magpies Bakery, Southwold

The Two Magpies Bakery in Southwold loves good food, that’s why they make all of their food from raw ingredients by hand on their premises, every day. They open early on a daily basis to sell their freshly made breads, cakes and pastries making their bakery a wonderful spot to sit and enjoy breakfast whilst savouring the aromas of fresh baked bread.

Their breakfast menu is made up of the breads and pastries from the bakery as well as granola, bacon sandwiches, porridge and dippy eggs with soldiers. What’s more their specially trained baristas make a mean cup of coffee, the perfect accompaniment to your Pain au Chocolat.

8. The Pantry, Newmarket

This independent deli set on the High Street in Newmarket specialises in locally sourced, British produce showcasing the best quality food that East Anglia has to offer.

The brunch menu is extensive with a superb combination of both savoury and sweet dishes, making use of the delectable products from the deli from fried breakfasts, bacon sandwiches and stuffed croissants to fruit scones, homemade flapjacks and a lovely variety of cakes. The menu changes regularly to suit the seasons and to make use of the local ingredients that they source.

9. The Kitchen @ Thorpeness, Thorpeness

Is there anything more satisfying then breakfast by the beach? The answer is no, there most definitely isn’t and that’s exactly why we love The Kitchen @ Thorpeness.

With a menu comprised of tasty comfort food and your favourite seaside classics there’s no better place to sit back and watch the world go by over freshly baked breads, cakes, hearty breakfast dishes and a steaming cup of coffee. Tuck into large or small cooked breakfasts, smoked salmon and scrambled eggs, porridge, granola or just a few slices of doorstop toast and some jam.
