I was lucky enough to be treated to an Olive Bizarre Bistro Night for my birthday last week. I loved the buzz, busy but not overcrowded, friendly atmosphere and attentive service. But above all what I enjoyed most was the excellent food. We've already booked for the next one - say no more!

We have been in this cafe during our summer holidays in Newcastle. Coffee was quite good and the food was excellent. Waitresses were attentive and we all felt very well at the cafe, we will return there if we repeat our summer in Newcastle!.

Having visited this cafe before during the day, I always wanted to try their evening bistro menu and I wasn't dissapointed. At the start of each month they offer a BYO menu and it was absolutely lovely and such good value for money. Very attentive staff and quirky decor. Must visit again soon.

We turned up early one day, before the cafe had properly opened, but were welcomed in nonetheless & made very welcome. Food very nice, welcome and service friendly & warm.

If you are heading to Newcastle this is my favourite spot for food any time of the day the staff are really lovely and the food is just great. I love the décor vintage with out being over the top. They have hot water bottles for the brave souls that swim in the sea the year round and you always... More

Cafe au lait, best milky coffee in town. Large cup of smooth, creamy coffee, i'd drive miles for it. Lovely, quirky atmosphere with friendly staff.

We stopped in for a late breakfast and were not disappointed. The place was packed, so we sat on the sofas in the corner until a table for four became available. Once we found a table and ordered, our breakfasts arrived fairly quickly and were perfectly prepared. All in all, enjoyed our meals and will definitely be coming back.

Been here a good few times now on my visits to Newcastle for breakfast! Quick service, friendly staff and can't help myself to some tasty homemade tray bakes on my way out the door!

My girlfriend and I visited this wonderful café on the last day of our holiday in Dundrum and Newcastle, Co. Down, N.I. I opted for the full fry up which was easily one of the best I have had. Sausage, bacon, beans, eggs, toast, potato scone etc, cooked perfectly and served hot. The atmosphere is friendly, warm, and welcoming and... More

Just had the breakfast special. £5 for a full breakfast (sausage, egg, beans, tomato, bacon, soda bread, toast and coffee or tea). My young companion spent a lot of time deciding if the sausage beat yesterday's at another local establishment - too close to call. Coffee comes with free top s and the tea in large pots with quirky hand... More
