New coffee shop serves up a treat
There is a caffeine-fuelled buzz about a formerly forlorn building which has a new lease of life as a Cromer café.
Henry's Coffee and Tea Store on Church Street has welcomed its first customers. The business has been started by husband-and-wife team Philip and Caroline Search and named after the couple's eight-year-old son Henry.
It was double delight for Mr Search, who celebrated his 49th birthday along with the opening of the shop last Tuesday.
The premises, which was previously occupied by a mobility aid business, had been empty for several months.
Now it is the latest addition to the seaside town's vibrant café scene.

Mr Search said: 'It had been out of use for some time and become quite dilapidated.
'Cromer is an amazing location to open any business and to be living in the town too makes it quite humbling.'

The opening of the business was warmly welcomed by Cromer Chamber of Trade committee member Richard Leeds.
He said: 'It is brilliant the building has returned to use and the cafe will help bring more life to the east end of town. With the promenade re-opening and summer on its way everything should be coming together for Cromer.'
