Crusos is a great peaceful cafe on the beach serving food and drink and providing wedding and party space all through the year! Dogs are allowed inside and its great after having a walk or play on the beach then looking forward to either sitting down for a nice coffee or you can take away!

Lovely place, never been here before yesterday. My husband had large fish and chips which were fab and me and the kids had the small which were all gorgeous other than my eldest daughter found a couple of bones, but it was a fish! Lovely all round can't wait to re visit. I think it's very hard to find decent... More

Crusoes is on Longsands which is as attractive a beach as anywhere in the world and we call in regularly for a very enjoyable warming coffee/cappuccino.Today we thought we would try the large fish and chips, huge indeed with mushy peas, salad and bread but poor quality for what should be a speciality by the sea.So keep visiting but careful...

Our family of six adults and 4 small kids had an early Sunday morning breakfast. The location is brilliant, almost on the beach. Quirky decor and ambiance, and easy parking. A downside - my bacon sandwich left a lot to be desired - very leathery bacon!

Found this super spot on a cold, windy and showery day located on the beach at Tynemouth. My sister had told me that the hot chocolate was rather special. She was not wrong! When it came to ordering it I was asked if we wanted cream so I said yes please. What I had not expected was a milk chocolate... More

Lovely scenic view of Tynemouth beech, Friendly staff, nice food, and prices are fair as the food is nice and not like cheaper cafes. Overall, a nicely laid out and decorated café with great views of the beech and north sea!

If the walk down to the beach made you shiver with cold, pop in to Crusoe's and warm back up with a ginger latte. Treat yourself to a mountain sized muffin or teacakes the size of dinner plates. And when they say big fish & chips, they mean it!

After an early morning appointment for a CAT scan, we thought we would try Crusoe's for breakfast! We got a sunny table outside and arrived just before the crowd gathered for their Saturday morning Coffees. Wonderful full English breakfast - made more enjoyable by all the beach activities to watch - we lingered as long as we dared. It will... More

My husband and I had our evening wedding celebration last year (september) and it was amazing, the best location I could have ever picked! The staff are very helpful in organising what you would like, particularly Sharon and Tracey were amazing, thank you! The room is transformed from the cafe in the daytime to a lovely party venue, with balloons,... More
