Popular lifestyle guide Muddy Stilettos has revealed what its readers think are the best cafes in Norfolk.

Each year the publications hosts the Muddy Awards, in which the site's 3.8 million readers nominate their favourite local businesses in 28 counties nationwide.

Each business is placed into one of 21 categories and a public vote narrows each category down to the top five in each county.
