Good prices and good breakfast
May 2019 • Couples
Struggled to find this place as we thought it was called Long Play Cafe, turns out it’s also called Popolo which was the only sign I saw the first three times we walked past. Ideal place for a Full English fry or for French Toast. Very reasonable prices and service was friendly and didn’t have to wait long, impressed as seemed to be one chef serving about 30 people. Full English was generous for under £7, bacon crispy without having to ask, excellent egg work, gamechanger if the egg isn’t runny. My partner had the veggies brekky and although they’d run out of veggie sausages the chef doubled everything else on the plate. Very happy, good coffee. Think the place turns into a late bar in the eve so it’s a bit rustic and post pub sticky but little issue with that when the food is good. Went back next day and my partner this time had the something monkey French toast which was huge with lashings of Nutella and banana, again recommended, great location, get prices.

Long wait for breakfast and a shame we never got to try it!
Mar 2019 • Couples
Four of us arrived just before 10am and as we order 3 small breakfast options and one full english I didn’t expect we would have to wait nearly an hour for our food. There was plenty of staff around, however they never once came over to our table after we ordered and failed to notice even after the numerous times they walked past us that we were still sitting with no food and empty drinks. One positive thing of our experience is that the 8 people who came in and ordered after us really enjoy their breakfasts...needless to say after witnessing that we walked out! It’s a shame as the food actually looked really nice!

Sat for an hour to not get breakfast
Mar 2019 • Couples
Got in just before 10am. Had a weak coffee. 4 of us ordered before 10am. At least 8 people that came in after us got served before us. Couldn’t tell you what the food was like as after an hour we gave up. Absolutely clueless 👎

expensive beers
Dec 2018 • Friends
we went to Popolos bar as a meeting point.

It was not very well done out for a bar on the quayside.

It was dark with prison type bars separating the bar from the sitting area.
The beer was expensive for the style of pub and the music was not our type of music being rock music that we had never heard of.
dimly lit stairs to the toilets.

Staff christmas do
Dec 2017 • Business
I went to popolo in Newcastle for a staff christmas do.

The music was great, there was an extensive selection of drinks and it was a good location for central newcastle and the station. At £10 each for some finger buffet food it was reasonable too.

The layout wasn't great to get people mingling, but that's hardly the venues fault. The drinks were on the upper end of the price I'm used to, but probably no worse than normal for central newcastle. The food was also a bit inaccessible and delivered in batches which made it hard to get anything to eat. I think I had one chicken skewer all afternooon.

Overall a decent venue and a good time.

Not a great experience
This was our first visit to this establishment and we decided to stop off for a latte. I paid for the coffees and took a table outside which was the only one available and littered with used dishes from a previous customer. After a twenty minute wait with no coffees appearing I went inside to question where they were. The guy behind the bar said that they were on there way. Ten mins later, they appeared and the tables were eventually cleared. Coffees were ok, but a 30 minute wait and it wasn't that busy. An apology would have been appropriate too. My wife visited the toilets who mentioned to me that they were far from clean and a lot of damage had been sustained to them with one huge hole in one of the walls. I was very surprised by how many positive reviews that this establishment gets but on this occasion, it was poor at best
