Friendly and pleasant atmosphere

As many other reviewers have said, this restaurant is 'quirky' with its various assorted old chairs and tables, sofas and countless ornaments and objects to fascinate visitors around the place. It is clean and staff were very friendly. The mushroom and brie quiche was tasty but I thought it was a... read more

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!

I love the retro effect and the brilliant staff, I went through a list of their drinks which were amazing and I had one of their breakfasts which are to die for! If you go to 1901 you MUST try the breakfast as it is like no other!! The staff are so friendly, Could sit there all day!!

I visited here last Saturday when meeting up with friends who lived nearby. Loved the cinema style seating at the back. Lovely decor and ambience too. A nice mix of old and young clientele. The carrot cake I ordered was moist and delicious and the tea to perfection. We were quite near closing time when we arrived but weren't at... More

An absolutely gorgeous, unique little place with plenty of character and a lovely, relaxing atmosphere. The staff were extremely friendly and accommodating, the service was faultless and the food was delicious. I will certainly be visiting again.

Been many times, but our latest visit in early February was disappointing. Very average food and rude staff. There are better places to go in Jesmond. Even the decor is becoming old hat, been the same a long time now.

Not being familiar with the area, it was only by chance that we found this place. A unique collectiong of chairs and furniture adds lots of character to this place. We ate a couple of excellent toasted sandwiches. The mustard nearly beat my husband!! Definitely would visit again, if we were in the area.

What a great place 1901 is. Great coffee with staff who know their stuff. I'm a coffee geek myself and had a great chat with the manager about different roasting processes and beans the beans they use. Very relaxing atmosphere. Will make it my regular when I'm in Jesmond.
