An outstanding experience courtesy of Anne and Adrian, who have created a gem of a café on the Norfolk coast. The food is delicious, varied café fare that will tempt GD/DF and general diners alike. And the peace of mind that a fully CoeliacUK-accredited venue...offers is all too rare, especially for an independent eaterie given the stringent requirements. Anne was very kind to share the name of local gf suppliers and some recipe ideas with our coeliac tween, who came away inspired to try a couple of variations on her trusted banana bread.More

As someone with coeliac disease who has to be very careful where I eat, I was delighted to hear about this cafe. The staff were very friendly and attentive and the food was delicious! I will definitely be visiting again.

My guesthouse in Hunstanton did not serve porridge for breakfast. I ate a few Weetabix instead for breakfast. By the time we set off in the morning to start our day I began to feel hungry again. I decided to try the local cafes in...Hunstanton for porridge. The first two I tried were unsuccessful I then stumbled across The Spontaneous Cuppa I asked did they serve porridge and Adrian went and asked Anna if she could serve porridge ? She asked me if wanted it cooked the Scottish way with a pinch of salt ? Cinnamon or nutmeg ? Sugar or Stevia ? It was lovely. We also had nice coffees and had takeaway cake. I enjoyed the porridge and top class customer service so much that I returned the next day before departing Hunstanton for more porridge, coffee etc This cafe is spotless with healthy food and great customer service - what a find 👍More

We sought out The Spontaneous Cuppa during our day out to the coast, as it had great reviews for gluten free food and was Coeliac UK accredited. We weren't dissapointed. The food was delicious and it was enjoyable to have the full menu to choose...from. We didn't want to leave without trying everything and ended up buying extra cakes and sausage rolls to take back home with us. The owners were absoloutely lovely, chatty people. If you're deciding where to eat, we'd wholeheartedly recommend a visit. I'm sure if we were locals this would become a favourite eatery, and if they released a "Spontaneous Cuppa" gf recipe book we'd definitely buy it! Dietary restrictions: Coeliac UK accredited and everything is gluten free. I think they're 100% dairy free as well.More

The Spontaneous Cuppa is without a doubt one of Norfolk's best gems! As a local to Hunstanton I have found a place that gets the balance of reasonable pricing, accommodating service and excellent food hard to come by; the Spontaneous Cuppa has got everything perfect,...and I can honestly say that this is the friendliest and most enjoyable eatery that I have ever been to, not just in Hunstanton but all of Norfolk. Ann and Adrian do an outstanding job in accommodating for all dietary requirements, all the food is gluten free and there are plenty of options available for vegetarians, vegans and for those who are lactose intolerant - the food is second to none, I highly recommend the loaded potatoes and the trillionaires tart, all made by Ann and simply delicious! The menu is also updated daily to accommodate all dietary needs, all very fresh, and I can't get over how reasonably priced everything is! The building itself has a beautifully decorated art deco interior, I have found upon my visits that it is always immaculately clean and it is clear that all the staff have a very high regard for hygiene. Ann and Adrian are the friendliest and most accommodating people you could ever meet, you are guaranteed a warm and attentive welcome! Would highly recommend to anyone, and would encourage anyone passing to call in and give it a try!More

So great to find a 100% gluten-free menu (plus many dairy-free, vegetarian and vegan options too). My husband chose Tandoori chicken:2 succulent pieces of chicken with new potatoes, salad and home-made raita. I had stuffed portobello mushrooms with new pots, salad and the raita. Both...meals were absolutely delicious and an indulgent Billionnaire's shortbread rounded it off beautifully. The owners were really welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. We'd certainly recommend this cafe and will return very soon.More

A friend and I went out for lunch today and happened upon The Spontaneous Cuppa. It wasn’t until we were sat down inside that we realized it was a GF, lactose free, other stuff free kind of establishment. We decided to have a coffee and...leave for lunch elsewhere. However, we ordered two flat whites. To our surprise they were really good flavorful coffees, I don’t care what kind of milk. A couple next to us were eating some yummy looking noodles and we decided to stay for lunch based on their comment to the owner about how good their food was. All I can say is…..the food was fabulous!! I had chicken stir fry and my friend had salmon salad. The food was fresh, home made and delicious. Don’t be put off by the GF lactose free whatever, the food is far from flavorless and as far as I’m concerned they can can leave out whatever they like. I’ll be going back for more for sure. Lovely friendly couple, great service, lovely little cafe. A great addition to Hunstanton. 😋😋😋More

This is a 100% gluten free cafe which is a godsend if you are a Coeliac. It opened in March in the High Street in Hunstanton. There are a choice of freshly made dishes each day - a meat dish, a vegetarian dish, soup, Salad,...sandwich and jacket potatoes. Their menu is influenced by world cuisine and it changes each day which is great if you are staying in Hunstanton for a few days. It had a very good ambience and was quite busy when we were in there - that’s always a good sign of a good restaurant. The owner Adrian was very welcoming to all the customers and made you feel very comfortable. My husband and I had Chicken stir fry with rice noodles and it was delicious. I thoroughly recommend eating here and my only regret is we didn’t find it at the beginning of our holiday as we would have eaten in there every day.More
