Stopped in here for breakfast after hearing great things about the food, and I have to say we were not disappointed. Lovely eggs Benedict, great coffee and good atmosphere! Not much in the way of service, but on this occasion it didn't bother me because I left full and smiling!!

Me and my wife and a friend visited for a post birthday hangover cure and the Butterfly Cabinet did not disappoint. Our visit will be the second time as it's current incarnation and it is very popular in Heaton. I went for the 'Business' and my wife and friend had the buttermilk packages with added bacon. The food was of... More

I've been here many times. It's always a good place to catch up with old friends or take the family out to. You'll also find that you're not as confident as you think eating big meals once you're halfway through.

Visited the Butterfly Cabinet on the recommendation of friends who visit it regularly and rave about how great it is. The service was good, the food was quite tasty and reasonably priced, the portion sizes were massive! I'd never be one to complain about getting too much food but the portion sizes are ridiculous, I got the rest of my... More

This place is nice enough. But I got a English breakfast and they piled the plate with beans which I didn't like. I wanted a milkshake to but it's four pounds!!!! I got one but it's defiantly not worth that.

I don't normally go for this type of place as it's often full of students in their pyjamas but you can't deny they do brilliant breakfasts. We had to queue for a while last Sunday but once seated the service was actually quite good as the place is renowned for being mega laid back. You can have almost any breakfast... More

My uncle & I go to the butterfly cabinet whenever we have a chance. The food is always good, however after going today we are debating whether we would go back or not. Firstly, the food took over an hour! Now we understand that this is a busy place, however a simple explaination to say our food may be a... More

Was looking for a cafe with great US-style thick buttermilk pancakes and discovered this place online. With all the great reviews and their occasional Blues night, I thought it looked promising. It's pretty well situated for public transport with Byker Metro station within a 15 minute walk and there is a really nice park (Heaton Park) across the street. We... More

I love this place. The opening hours aren't great, closing at four on a Sunday! But there is a reason why it is queued out the door on weekends. The food is good value and plentiful, with a menu ranging from breakfast (full English, French toast, delectable homemade pancakes) to lunch (paninis, sandwiches etc) and larger meals like burgers etc....
