the cafe at urban jungle
The Cafe at Urban Jungle is located within the fabulous Urban Jungle. Our Café in Norwich is within a tropical greenhouse, complete with pond. At Beccles, Suffolk it's within a large barn. Both have comfortable sofas and seating totally embraced by exuberant leafy plants – it really is a Café in a jungle!
Our ethos is to serve beautiful, simple food made with quality gluten-free ingredients from suppliers who are passionate about animal welfare and the environment. We use organic milk and butter and we recycle everything. Even the café itself is built from recycled and up-cycled materials.
Our Cafe at Urban Jungle web pages are currently under construction, please bear with us. You can find out more about Urban Jungle Suffolk here.

Hot Beverages

The Cafe at Urban Jungle coffee
We use only the finest single estate beans, freshly ground and served to you in a cafetiere. Our loose-leaf teas range from traditional English Breakfast to spicy, exotic seasonal blends. Hot chocolate should be an indulgence so we make ours with creamy full fat Jersey milk, dark chocolate, a little sugar, and nothing else.

Cakes & Pastries

The Cafe at Urban Jungle cakes
A great selection of sweet treats available including Yoghurt, white chocolate and strawberry sponge cake, Chocolate fudge cake, Pecan Pie, Tarte au citron. In autumn & winter we usually prepare a hot dessert daily including traditional favourites like Bread and Butter Pudding and Apple Crumble (all Gluten-Free of course).


The Cafe at Urban Jungle food
Stuffed mushrooms, Voakes award winning pies, Quiche and a selection of toasted sandwiches with a range of fillings including Camembert and Cranberry, Pastrami, Chedder Cheese & Red Onion Marmalade and Mozzarella, Tomato & Pesto. Hearty, warming, homemade soup (seasonal) served with homemade bread & butter.

Tropical Plants

Leather Sofas
The Cafe at Urban Jungle is quite unlike any other cafe you’ve ever been to. The food is very traditional, honest, tasty and wholesome but the surroundings filled with luxuriant plants will whisk you away to the tropics. Urban Jungle nursery caters for a wide variety of gardening tastes with exotics through to old-fashioned favourites.


After a session of browsing the enormous selection of plants for sale in the Urban Jungle nursery you may have worked up an appetite for lunch. Perhaps a bowl of Homemade Soup (seasonal), followed by a Whole Baked Camembert with Cranberry, finishing with a beautiful cake or dessert of the day.
