New owners reopen popular cafe as Wittles Castle Acre
A popular cafe in Castle Acre which has been bought by new owners will be reopening tomorrow under a different name.
Deb and Steve Barnfields, who spent 15 years at their Barnfields Cafe, sold it to Simon Kerr and Andrew Talbot, who are opening it as Wittles Castle Acre.
They say they focus on delivering "the everyday delicious", using carefully sourced products packed with flavour for relaxed dining.
Said Simon: "Initially, the cafe will offer just take away and the plans are to fully open the interior and shop in early spring next year.
"Throughout the winter, it will be open on Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 3pm. As it is located close to the English Heritage Castle and Priory, it will be the perfect pit stop during a walk, cycle ride, or catch up with friends or family."
The take away menu will include coffee roasted by Yallah Coffee Roasters in Cornwall, who specialise in single origin beans, the pinnacle in quality and character, according to Simon and Andrew, who recently moved to Norfolk from Cornwall, where they owned a successful cafe in Truro.
In addition, customers can warm up with a range of teas, luxurious hot chocolates, sweet treats, home baked sausage rolls and winter pots of homemade soups and stews.
Menu items will change daily and will feature dishes such as chipotle and chocolate chilli with sour cream, cheddar and salted tortillas, broccoli and leek soup with crumbled Norfolk blue cheese and thyme sourdough croutons, rich beef and winter vegetable stew with horseradish cream cheese and parsley and spinach and coconut dahl with crispy ginger onions and raita.
All cakes are home baked and include peanut butter crinkle top brownies, banana and toasted pecan bread, chai latte cupcakes, lemon chai and ricotta muffins, better together chocolate and vanilla cake plus other daily choices.
