Charming, I had the lightest loveliest scone ever, discovered this place at the end of our short stay in Newcastle. Would definitely have returned if we had the time.

The café was fairly busy for mid-morning on a Tuesday - given the fact that Arlo is located in the student area Jesmond, there was a refreshing mix of clientele. I was seated quickly and my waitress was efficient. The eggs royale was delicious, and...More

Whilst the food is good, the service is truly terrible. It’s impossible to get the waitresses attention and they often just walk past whilst you’re trying to catch their eye. I’ve even had to go up to the coffee bar just to pay the bill,...More

Loved this place, from the food to the service and the decor. We were accommodated quickly have 'gatecrashed' as a party of 12 and we all loved the place and food. Well worth a visit.

We have been going here for years...Lucas and the team are fantastic. The menu is always changing and the food is always top notch. We have converted many to Arlo's and will continue to do so. Keep up the good work 👍

Had the sourdough with avocado and chilli jams (without eggs) and it was the best tasting avocado on toast I've had! Would like there to be more vegan options.

Such a busy cafe but worth the wait to be seated. We sat outside where heaters that you can control yourself & blankets are provided. Menu is great with lots of varied choices to suit all tastes & dietary requirements. Coffee was really good. Food...More

We took our son to Uni and took him for what would probably be his last decent meal for 3 months. The place was busy with a good atmosphere but the staff were attentive and drinks arrived quickly. The menu is extensive and my son...More
