Revelation foodA warm welcome offered at Revelation 

Revelation in Norwich offers up-to-date Christian resources, a cafe serving delicious food made from locally sourced ingredients and a warm personal welcome to its customers.

Revelation has always been more than just a city centre cafe.  Team member Claire Gunn said, "It's true, we offer fantastic food and drink at affordable prices, never skimping on quality, and locally sourced where possible."

The coffee served is from Coffee Express, meat from P B George Butchers and vegetables from Easters fruit and veg - all local suppliers. Claire explains how Revelation is so much more than that; "Our regular customers are all greeted by name, we know what they like, we adapt to what they require.  Our new customers soon become our regulars because we're not just a 'dip in and out' cafe."

Some the prices at Revelation:

  • Coffee from £2.00,
  • In house baked fruit & cheese Scones £1.95
  • Cake £2.50
  • In house made Soup & a Roll £4.50
  • Paninis £6.25
  • Quiche Meal £6.25
  • Full Breakfast inc hot drink £6.50 (served until 11.30am)
  • Meal of the Day £7.50
  • Desserts £3.50

It helps of course that the Cafe and Bookshop are set within the beautiful St Michael at Plea Church on Redwell Street near Bank Plain in Norwich, just a few minutes walk from the Market area and Castle Meadow.  An excellent booklet detailing their history is available in the shop.  Revelation remains a haven of peace, calm and restfulness in a busy world.

The shop contains Christian resources, books, gifts and cards.  Claire said, "You can't replace being able to physically look and get a feel of things before you buy.  Our book of the month currently is 'The Bible. A story that makes sense of life' by Andrew Ollerton.  Selected for The Big Church Read 2022!"

The shop is stocked with supplies for Lent and Easter. Claire said, "We run as a charity and work as a team.  Please come in and support us to help keep Revelation going into the future.  We're the only Christian Bookshop and Cafe in the city of Norwich and within quite some distance."

Revelation is open Tuesday to Saturday: Shop 10am to 4pm and Cafe 10am to 3pm.
