First time in Newcastle and fantastic first experience at Estabar. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, and the food just delightful! The chef cooked with extra love and care, which showed in our dishes. Both the Early Bird Toastie and Breakfast Bruschetta were very yummy! Will go back again tomorrow!

I go there quite often to catch up with staff in an informal setting. The coffee is always excellent and the other day I had the breakfast option of smoked ham toast. Good flavour and texture combination and the pesto on top was nice.

Stopped here for breakfast. Amazing view of the beach from the window bench seats. Great coffee. I had scrambled eggs on toast with ham, was good sized serving and came on thick toast. The ham was divine.

Came for breakfast. We both ordered poached eggs with smoked ham toast and labne with a cappuccino. After quite a wait our breakfast arrived. The eggs were hard boiled and very dry. The ham was not very nice, tasted like it was going off. So it was a plate with some cold ham that was not very nice, two hard... More

I came here with my friend who has a mental disability and the staff were very nice and accommodating. The brownie we purchased was immaculate and thick with flavour. The only downside is the small size of this establishment, but they have done a good job without seating plan to reduce the clutter.

Thanks for squeezing in to see us Sterling S ;) we are a tad on the small size which means we all get rather close, which is maybe nice! I'm glad we looked after you well and you enjoyed your brownie. Hope to see you again soon, Cheers Bec More

Great coffee, chai latte, location and views. Excellent healthy food as well. Quite small and can be busy but worth it.

We've had many family breakfasts at Estabar - so, on our last visit, we took the grandchildren. The breakfast menu covers all ages; the food and service are faultless but it is the location - directly opposite Newcastle beach - that add the icing to the toast. The grandkids got a real kick from watching the early morning beach parade... More

There is much to like about Estabar. It's busy but the service is good. The food and coffee are fine and well priced. Some of the staff are easy on the eye and all of them are charming. The view over Newcastle City Beach is a delight. The only down side is it can be a bit hot in summer... More
