We can offer you a buffet style catering or morning coffee/ afternoon tea menu. 

We are happy to work around any requests/ allergies.


The Books & Beans café opened in August 2012 in Great Yarmouth Library. 

The café features a range of teas, fresh coffee and cold drinks, as well as freshly made sandwiches, panini, jacket potatoes and delicious homemade sweets and savouries. We also offer a selection of international food choices including Baklava and salgadinhos.  

As part of our relaunch in April 2018, we now offer a Wednesday "Meal Deal" for only £4 including a drink. On the first Wednesday of each month we host a "Pizza on the patio" event where our chef prepares fresh Napoletana style pizza on the patio with his pizza oven.
