A brilliant find. My partner and I absolutely loved this place. The atmosphere is relaxed and welcoming, the staff are friendly and the food is unpretentious, authentic and delicious. Coffee is amongst the best we’ve had in Norwich too. Can’t recommend enough! Will be back.

Magdalen Street at its best. Welcoming and accommodating. Adjusting orders to suit slightly fussy eaters. No pressure to order or go when finished. No fixed demographic for customers; all sorts happy in here. Baklava- yum! In two minds about sharing this... Will defiantly be returning.

It’s my ‘go to’ cafe in the city, and I’m lucky that it’s just a short walk from my house, and it’s on my walking route into the city. The place is spotless, and always has been. The staff are great and they work so hard, and they welcome everybody! It’s a real ‘Oasis’ in the city. Oasis......Sahara, get it? Lol. I highly recommend it to all, wether you live local, or you’re a visitor, add it to your ‘go to’ list!!!

Brilliant coffee and pastries. Coffee is among the best in Norwich. Pastries are excellent! The geezer running the place is always cheerful and welcoming. This is my chill out zone when my working day is getting a little tough. Love chilling out here.

A gem of a find. What a lovely little place … suggested by a friend who knows the area more I was really impressed. Lovely welcoming and friendly staff and a tasty looking menu. I was there for a cuppa and a catch up so went with the beautiful fresh mint tea and a cheeky little baclava but will definitely be back for food!

The coloured umbrellas caught our eye and further inspection revealed a cafe/restaurant with seating outside and in and an attractive menu with plenty of vegetarian options. The staff were friendly and attentive. We had the tagine, one veggie and one meat - very tasty and filling. The other dishes flying out of the tiny kitchen looked very tempting, pity we don’t live nearby. Well done, Sahara and may you long continue to feed the lucky people of Norwich.

Lovely authentic cafe. My friend and I visited today and are both vegan, there is a vegan menu on their board and the lovely chap behind the counter helped us with this. We had a tasty couscous dish and a vegan cake tasting of almonds and apricot (?) which was also delicious. Have walked past many times, but will definitely been visiting again. Authentic, lovely, friendly, unrushed atmosphere.
