Our favourite place for breakfast out. Not because it's local but because the food and service are damn good, and consistently damn good too. Special mention for Paul's new breakfast wrap - delicious.

Delicious food prepared just the way you like it by generous chef/owner Paul. He is always helpful & cooks your food to your preferences. I love Burger Wednesday tho the Flying Start breakfast is also delicious. A lovely relaxed atmosphere & a delicious Sunday lunch make this my favourite local cafe.

Brilliant service. Gave them a call and collected on way from town and was piping hot when I got home. Nice big dinner nice and tasty and cheesecake to die for. £7.50 which is well worth it. Will be going again. A great alternative to going out if you want a homemade Sunday lunch.

Found this place online when looking for a lunch spot visiting our son at uni. Great variety of food to suit hungry student, delicate grandparents and even had biscuits and a warm welcome for the spaniel! Food was beautifully cooked, hot, fresh and plentiful. Really friendly staff too - this place deserves to do well.

Stopped here for lunch when I dropped my daughter for uni, literally around the corner from her flat. Gorgeous sweet potato soup, so filling couldn't eat it all. Great value for students and visitors. They also welcome dogs, lovely friendly establishment. Will definitely visit again when I am in Newcastle

We never go out for Sunday dinner as I think it's hard to get a good one at a good price. Today I struck gold, I have visited Thymes Sq before but not on a Sunday. I was not disappointed, large portions, quality veg & delicious beef topped off with cake for only £8.50! If your not sure where to... More

I've had many a coffee and snack here but we felt we had to try the Sunday Lunch. Good choice - lovely beef and a nice plateful of potatoes and vegetables. Service was quick and friendly and the only problem was that we could not both eat the desert. But not an issue - we had one cheesecake with two... More

I am quite the regular here and have never had a bad bit of grub. Love the breakfasts and coffee is very good. On my visit today despite the commotion of building work outside the atmosphere was really nice. Staff are always well mannered and attentive. Advise anyone to give this place a shot. Brill ☕️🍽
