“not like starbucks or costa - thank god!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

If your not in to the whole corporate image of starbucks etc, this is the place for you.

I didnt eat there but the coffee is nice and the staff are friendly. theres a good mix of people so itrs good if you like people watching.

as for people complaining about the location/condition of the toilets - get over yourself, its a toilet, do you seriously plan on drinking your coffee in them?

“Breakfast! That is all! :)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

A fantastic full English, either regular or vegetarian, with a free cuppa too. As it should be - with the added bonus of being served until 2pm! (Just in case!) Brilliant :) Great food, great value, great service, great location, bit creepy going to the loo but you can't have everything! Enjoy :)

I would definitely recommend for an affordable breakfast - good choice, friendly staff and very reasonable prices. Will definitely return.

“Little Gem”

Popped in yesterday with my mate for a quick lunch. The food was simple and great, served by staff who all had a smile on their face and were good fun to chat to. Well worth a visit

“Goon and Dark Horse Honesty Box”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

We go here for breakfast every time we are in Newcastle. Warm ambience; business people, kids, families, workmen, tourists all enjoying breakfast. There are newspapers and it is in the heart of town. We always eat stotties with whatever breakfast items we fancy; black pudding, egg, sausage, bacon etc and drink coffee. All cooked to order and fresh. Love this place!
