“Nice breakfast”
Reviewed 20 August 2013

A nice place for breakfast, with good quick service. I had lovely scrambled eggs with well grilled bacon and granary toast. Really good and reasonably priced. Lovely coffee. Lots of traybake cakes here at the counter too, all looking worth a try on my next visit. Not many tables, but sharing is good when they are busy. Friendly and helpful staff.

Beautiful cafe with really lovely, large cakes and lots of great tea. Staff were super friendly and it was very peaceful with a lovely atmosphere. A nice unique place to try in Newcastle, would recommend.

“Awesome sandwiches”
Reviewed 9 August 2013

We went here for lunch twice over the course of a long weekend. It really is one of the best delis/sandwich shops I have ever been to! There is an enormous amount of choice, good size portions and really top quality ingredients. Also an excellent craft beer selection. The children's sandwiches are also excellent, and great value for £2.50. It also sells the most unbelievable selection of cakes - massive slabs of inventive chocolate treats!

“Very Good”
Reviewed 2 August 2013 via mobile

What a great place. Great value and great food. A rarity in Newcastle which is slowly turning into a corporate fast food wasteland.

“Great lunch!!”
Reviewed 23 July 2013 via mobile

Ate here this afternoon and was amazed at the variety and choice of paninis, baguettes and salads. We sampled a chorizo salad and a pastrami baguette which were both delicious. Found this establishment by chance and so glad we stumbled across this little trendy cafe in the heart of the city. Will be visiting again very soon when next in Newcastle.
