For fun-loving enthusiasts and those with a major sweet tooth, there is a café on Liverpool Street that will satisfy those cravings of yours. Introducing Norita, a popular yet relatively secluded café that presents a unique board game parlour concept, serving a multitude of drinks, desserts and of course, board games. As you enter the premises, a feeling of adventure is easily conjured, when you climb upwards on a steep stairway and gradually navigate into one of Sydney's sanctuaries.
The cosy seating, the smiling staff and relaxed atmosphere all contribute to providing customers with a positive experience. It also enables Norita to become a highly versatile venue, suitable for any occasion, whether it be a sweet date with your significant other or simply just unwinding with friends after a tiring day at school or work over a laughter-filled game of Pictionary.
If seated near the windows, patrons are offered a spectacular view of Liverpool Street, and can absorb in the bustling nature of the cityscape whilst sipping from a refreshing glass of iced taro milk tea. Comparatively speaking, Norita presents an opportunity for you to escape from the urban hubbub, and be rewarded for those efforts with a sugary treat and a game or two.
Drinks average around $5.50 with board games served on a separate menu. Prices for games are calculated per head, with individual games generally ranging from $1 (e.g. Jenga) to $4 (e.g. Settlers). If the unlimited games option is selected, costs are calculated on how many games were chosen.
Norita, an intimate yet convivial atmosphere and wonderfully friendly staff deliver a remarkable experience for anyone on any occasion. If you have not ventured there yet, be sure to add it to your bucket-list!
