I have visited Cafe des Amis on many occasions with friends who live nearby. We have always found the staff very friendly and helpful. We have usually gone for breakfast but have also had sandwiches, cakes and scones later in the day. I usually have eggs benedict and always enjoy them. My husband usually goes for a bacon sandwich and... More

This cafe is fabulous! The food is to die for! Everything is homemade and wonderful. We had delicious sultana and lemon scones and the nicest, poshest cheese on toast ever and white hot chocolate - scrummy! The staff were extremely friendly and welcoming. Can't recommend it highly enough.

Just been to visit this afternoon and the food was great really tasty and plenty of it the cakes were all gorgeous. Only thing letting it down was the staff weren't very warm and welcoming at all. No 'hello nice to see you' or a 'welcome' and most seemed to be a bit moody. The young girls however were quite... More

Although I've lived in Morpeth 10 years I've never been in here before. We recently got a puppy and whilst in Morpeth walking him I enquired at the pet shop if any cafés allowed dogs in ? Cafe des Amis they said. So off I went with my daughter and Alfie ( our 11 month westie). The welcome was amazing... More

Great to see different things on the menu for us vegetarians. But my husband wad also very satisfied with his bacon sandwich. The cafe is cosy and well decorated, a lovely place to... More

Pop in to this coffee shop when shopping in Morpeth. Lovely cakes, so much choice. The home made soup paired with a warm cheese scone is so nice and we are also very partial to the Eggs Benedict. Try it.

The first time I visited, I was very pleased with both the service and quality of food, however on the last three occasions staff have been offhand and unwelcoming, it is such a pretty cafe I overlooked this. Today's service has convinced me never to return, after ordering a breakfast sandwhich which was noticeably smaller than on previous visits, we... More

Hi Sarah A, I am very sorry you felt the need to write such a poor review after your visit, and that you considered the service & staff attitude very bad. As you can see by every other review no one has considered our service to be as you have stated. I am disappointed you feel this way and have... More
