Stumbled on this cafe during a trip to Newcastle. I can see why each time I ate here the place was packed. The variety of cakes and sweets has to be seen to be believed and the small sampling we had was delicious. I am...More

Landed in Newcastle for the very first time and once in the CBD we navigated the maze of roadworks, road closures and pedestrian crossings to find road blocks by the dozen. (Granted, setting up for the Newcastle 600) Feeling famished, fluey and frustrated, we give...More

The behaviour of the 'male snake' behind the counter was vicious and spiteful; I feel sorry for the staff that work at this cafe. If he spoke to a customer as he did me I can only imagine how rude he is to the other...More

This place is well known for its fantastic cakes, and rightly so. Not only the big party ones but the little singles are really good, flavour as well as sweetness. You'll find imaginative variety there. Also staying for a coffee is pleasant, it's not overcrowded...More

The only trouble with a place like sweet poison is the temptation of going too often and having to do a marathon run to get off the calories.But seriously, the coffee and cakes are delicious!

I bought a decadent cake for my wife's birthday. It must have been very nice it was all gone before I could get to the table. As usual Sweet Poison didn't let us down the quality and presentation of their product is without comparison

On a business trip I found this little gem. Great coffee they have lactose free milk which I had trouble finding in the area. Nice selection of lunch options and beautiful cakes.

Tantalising options but tried the Chicken Snitzel roll and old fashioned Iced chocolate ...I wasnt disappointed. Nice quiet atmosphere to indulge in a nice feed.

I buy birthday cakes from Sweet Poison for all of the office birthdays and they are seriously delicious and super fresh. We are slowly making our way through every single cake and I haven't had a single complaint. The honeycomb cheesecake was my personal favourite....More

Sweet Poison makes the BEST scones in Newcastle. Their birthday cakes are also amazing. Due to location the cafe can get very busy due to high shopping traffic, but pleasant overall.
