Airy, v clean, lovely welcoming people genuinely appreciate your custom. Fab food. Gorgeous desserts. Gr8 range of food and drinks on menu!
A gem in harton village in South Shields. We'll worth a visit.
Hot food served lovely and hot!
Cakes presented well and no skimpy portions like some cafés. We're regulars now and would recommend without any hesitation. Oh, and .... FREE WI FI. Review by Patch's mum and dad :-) :-)

I recently visited Café Blanca with my parthere. We had eaten there in the past when under previous ownership when the food was quite good but the service was diabolical. Now, what a transformation. The welcome was warm, friendly and they genuinely seemed pleased to see you. The menu is fairly extensive for this type of operation. the food came quickly, well presented. We were even asked if we would care to try a new cole slaw chef was thinking of introducing. We obviously said yes and when it was served we gave it a try with no one hovering over our shoulder.( It was delicious. On the menu asap ).
I would recomend this as it's one of the best I've had the pleasure of visiting.

Been here twice and it is a really wonderful place. Very, very clean, good choice of food and drinks and the staff are so unbelievably friendly. The second time we went, the cafe closed at 4pm and we hadn't realised, but the lady closing up let us stay and have another drink while she was cleaning up. So nice! It's decorated lovely and you just have a really nice feeling while you're there, it's a great atmosphere. I've seen people from all walks of life in there and I don't think I've ever felt more comfortable.
The only quibble I have (and it is such a minor nitpick), is that the outdoor seating could be a bit better. It wasn't even bad though, just could be a little better. Didn't take away from the visit at all though.
A great, great place to go.

I was expecting something better to be honest, the food was ok but the service a little in the slow side. 30 minutes for two toasties is a bit much. It wasn't like it was stowed out either.
