Norman’s isn’t a caf caf. Its identity feels more i-D magazine than a mug of tea and The Mirror, but that isn’t to be derogatory. Everything and everyone is spot on. The Breakfast Set 2 - a multi-carb delight featuring crispy hash brown, soft bubble and squeak, white sliced, a runny orange egg, thickly reduced homemade baked beans (the best we’ve had of an often disappointing bracket), and an added on sausage for good measure - is extremely good. Nothing reinvented and everything done well. Plus at weekends this caff turns a little more continental, serving wine and small plates.
