Constructive criticism

Been going here for a while like the atmosphere and go out for breakfast pretty much every day, like to come here to mix things up a bit. Not been up until now since it changed hands... Portions have shrunk, quality of ingredients seem to be poorer and for what it is the prices are outrageously... read more

If you are looking for a range of freshly made sandwhiches and salads accompanied by qualty teas and coffee sourced locally from Ringtons, then look no further. Located right in the heart of Jesmond you will find cafe 1901. Under new ownership this place is a must for those discerning customers who are looking for something different to the Starbucks...

My wife and I stumbled upon cafe 1901 during a drive through Jesmond. Although there is a Starbucks within a 100 yards we decided to give it a miss and try this place instead.We weren't disappointed. Friendly staff greeted us and got us settled in seats of our choice, there are are a range of options available. They have agreat... More

Students tend to favour one cafe above another to meet and greet their family and friends and so whenever I met up with my daughter in Jesmond we'd gravitate around the very excellent Arlo. Only on our last visit together did we venture around the corner into St George's Terrace to discover another delightful Jesmond eaterie. Tyneside's hipsters are really... More

I popped in for a flat white and club sandwich. Flat white was very nice and the club sandwich served on artisan brown bread was delicious. It is a very chilled and relaxing place and worth a visit. I have only one negative thing to say though and that is that they really need to bring out a duster as... More

My wife and I thought we would try the café and were certainly not disappointed. The staff were very friendly and we loved the décor, cannot remember the last time we sat at a school desk, especially to have a meal. The decaf coffee was excellent and the sandwiches delicious.

I've walked by this place a million times and always wanted to try it. Visited one Sunday morning in May for brunch, we ordered the eggs benedict on the bread. It was so delicious! The staff member on the till was really lovely, we chatted for ages about afternoon tea. I visited again mid-may with some friends for lunch and... More

We visited here after a swim with my daughters. The coffee, scones and flapjack were tasty and service was good. I loved the building and decor. It was a little pricey but we did enjoy our visit

Been to this coffee shop a few times now and it is such a lovely environment. The decor is amazing and staff are friendly. Always get a good cuppa at a reasonable price, haven't tried the food yet but heard good things!

Breakfasted twice here, because so much better than hotel offerings. Everything freshly / home made. Cakes and coffee so good. Eclectic decor, but one or two furnishings just too shabby chic to the point of discomfort... Fun. Parking a big problem. Will go again when in area!
