A Norwich cafe has been recognised by The Guardian as being one of the best places to eat breakfast in the UK.
No 33, on Exchange Street, was among 50 eateries in the country to make the newspaper's list and the only one in Norfolk.
The reviewer, Zoe Williams, commented on the long queues outside the venue and the interior reminding her of Miss Honey's house in the Roald Dahl novel Matilda.
But it was the food that got her most excited.
She wrote: 'The mushrooms on toast are a whole new world, the taste of autumn rushing at you like a flashback, with goats cheese and a red onion chutney lifting them to a plane so moreish it's actually frightening.
You may also want to watch:
'You can get all the regular, full-English-style permutations and not regret it.'
She also recommended the fish-finger sandwich which she said reminded her of Brian Blessed, in a good way.

Nicola Cawley, of No 33, said it was 'quite a surprise' when she heard about the accolade and added it was the first time the cafe had been recognised in the national press.
No 33 opened in 2006 and serves a selection of homemade cakes, hearty brunches and lunchtime dishes.
