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.

I have never been to this Café before now and I was in shock when I seen some of the bad reviews on here as I think it is amazing and the food is delicious. The staff are so friendly. the atmosphere is fantastic. I can not pick a fault. I understand that the management has changed recently so I... 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.

Top little cafe in Jesmond... staff very, very friendly and welcoming.. eclectic interior, an old church, yet it still remains cosy and inviting.. Staff are exceedingly friendly and you can sit and work in there for a few hours and feel relaxed. Food tip top, tasty and good value..Much better than a branded coffee shop...

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
