The Spontaneous Cuppa is for everyone!

A new restaurant has opened on Hunstanton High Street that offers a 100% gluten free menu.
Adrian and Anne JM Norman’s careers have taken them around the world and the marriage of their skills in nursing, catering and logistics has created the perfect recipe for their new business. The couple explained: “The Spontaneous Cuppa business is built on respect for people living with allergies and those who make lifestyle choices about what they eat. People particularly living with an allergy or intolerance to gluten can’t be spontaneous when eating out. At The Spontaneous Cuppa, we want to change that. We are 100% Gluten Free!”
With a menu that is influenced by world cuisine and changes every day, breakfast wraps, muffins and cakes will be served between 9am and noon and from noon to 3pm homemade soups, meat and vegetarian dishes of the day will be available.
The calming and stylish décor has more than a nod to the years the couple spent working in Sweden and black and white pictures of Hunstanton adorn the walls.
The official opening took place this morning and Rosemary Meyer from SJP Solicitors was invited to cut the ribbon.
“Rosemary was very helpful to us when we were buying the business and we are very pleased she agreed to come along to officiate today” Said Anne.

On Wednesday 15th in the evening Town and Around were invited along to see the restaurant and sample some exceptional canapes prior to the launch along with other businesses.
Georgie from Georgie’s Café said “How refreshing to find somewhere that is 100% gluten free – a diet I follow myself!”
Amanda Coral of Berni Beans wished Adrian and Anne every success. She said: “It’s beautifully decorated and these canapes are delicious, what a great addition to our High Street.”
By the Book’s Adrian Eden said: Adrian and Anne are lovely people, the coffee is great and their collaborative business model is truly admirable.”
Next steps for Adrian and Anne include gaining the Coeliac UK accreditation.
The Coeliac Society report that around one in a hundred people have coeliac disease, but many other conditions including non-coeliac gluten sensitivity also need a gluten free diet and it is now estimated that at least 10% of UK consumers are following this diet.
Those who have nut allergies, dairy intolerance or are following a Low FODMAP diet are not forgotten either at the restaurant. Whatever dietary requirements you can be spontaneous at the new eatery in Hunstanton!
