we stayed nearby and visited here three days in a row. Can't recognise the place from some of the previous reviews, so much so that I have triple checked on the name and address. Really good, fast and pleasant service, at low prices. Coffee and fine teas, tea cakes perfect, smoked salmon and eggs fabulous and granola and yoghurt delicious.... More

My sisters came up to the weekend to visit me so I thought it would be nice to go for brunch - how wrong I was. We went up to order and paid at the same time. After handing over my money the waitress claimed I had not given her any notes, which I can assure you I had. Eventually... More

We took my son and his friend here on Saturday, as it looked quite pleasant upon first arriving. I'll make sure that I'm not swayed by old tat again. The food took an astonishing 45 minutes to arrive. Surely two pathetic bagels and an average Beef sandwich don't take that long? They were also incredibly poor value for money and... More

Having booked "accommodation only" in our nearby hotel, my wife and I breakfasted each morning in the wonderful Cafe 1901. A glass of iced orange juice, followed by a generous serving of porridge (with compote) and then a leisurely mug of fine coffee. All this in fascinating surroundings and attended by courteous, gracious staff. Just great !

I like quirky and eclectic but not in service. Nearly ten minutes for a coffee on a not very busy Saturday morning. £6 for two poached eggs and a bit of toast! Given where it is, and the population, this should be great not average. The nearest chain cafe is boycotted by a number of people so this should have... More

We were intending meeting for a coffee at a well known coffee chain nearby but my wife looked at Cafe 1901, liked what she saw, so we diverted to Cafe 1901. The quirky decor was attractive and the service from our waiter was both pleasant and prompt. I like coffee with a little cream so I had asked if this... More

Stopped in here with two others for a coffee and something to eat. I liked the odd and mismatched furniture, the quirky decor. The coffee was good, the cakes were better than average but not great. You could walk 50m further down the road and go to S******ks but why would you do that ? In a part of town... More

As a previous frequent customer of this cafe I just wanted to say that I have been put off going back by the many bad reviews on this site. As there are so many new and highly rated cafes opening up in Newcastle and around I am surprised that the owners of Cafe 1901 - which could be doing so... More

I like to put reviews on Trip Advisor that are positive - praise where praise is due. However, my experience in this cafe incensed me. I went with my husband and son for a coffee and cake as my son had just returned from a few months working in Africa. We ordered two cups of Assam and a cappuccino and... More

We were looking for a lunch stop, somewhere that could cope with my unusual dietary problems. What a find! Really interesting décor, very friendly staff, wonderful home cooked food, my 'challenges' no problem at all. What's more very reasonable prices. We had Pea, mint and cumin soup with home cooked bread, simply delicious for £4.75. Rustic breads for sale and... More
