Set in a beautiful Georgian room at Octavia View, our cafe offers great food and a high quality service with a friendly smile.

The cafe features an original ornate Georgian plaster ceiling and fireplace dating circa 1722, and provides a relaxed setting to enjoy your drink or meal. We serve delicious freshly ground coffee and a selection of traditional homemade cakes, scones and pastries, all made on the premises in our large state-of-the-art kitchen.

Revenue from the cafe goes towards funding our core services to support the homeless in Wisbech.
