Brunch on the beach

I met a friend at Tynemouth beach for a walk and afterwards we sat outside at Crusoe's for brunch. The selection of tea and cakes was amazing as was the savoury menu. We both had breakfast sandwiches and there was a vegetarian option too! The price was reasonable and the venue was unbeatable.

We have often seen this cafe but never gone in until yesterday. It was lovely, cakes and scones were delectable and the tea came in funky contraptions that drain the brewed Earl Grey into your cup. Views to die for, lovely decor and friendly staff. Fab!

Visited today at noon. Very busy but not too busy. Great food and coffee. Had bacon rolls (there were two of us, I was not that hungry!) that were fresh and with clear quality bacon. Excellent. And for round 2, muffins. As big as houses, one lemon curd and the other toffee apple. Fresh and sticky and first class. Was... More

Couldn't ask for a better location, perfect on a cold or sunny day watching the waves with a coffee and a cake! Brilliant with kids although maybe a little bit expensive but the view makes it worth the extra cost!

Live Crusoes. The location is ideal for enjoying watching the world go by, also lovely on colder days sitting inside and the hot chocolate and cakes are to die for.

Great location, good food,very family friendly, lots of seats but is a big expensive. If money isn't a factor for you then this a great place to visit. We treat ourselves now and again because of the superb location.
