I have been going to cafe1901 for a couple of months. Their hot chocolate is served with whipped cream, marshmallows..... And even a few maltesers. Be sure to try their delicious artisan cakes, and brownies. The cafe is nicely furnished with high ceilings, and good acoustics, giving the place a very friendly atmosphere, the service is also outstanding. I highly recommend the Full English Breakfast, my personal favourite.

This is my favourite Cafe in Jesmond where I have lived and worked over the past 20 years and we used to frequent more than any other. They make great coffee, perfect flat whites, serve tasty sandwiches but not so nice cakes made with margarine and not butter. We ordered Flat Whites and sandwiches last Saturday afternoon the staff were miserable and slow the tables were filthy and our sandwiches didn't arrive. When we enquired the dark miserable woman maybe the manageress said rather pathetically they have been sitting here for 20 minutes 'did you not get them' how do you answer that? She didn't apologise, refused us a refund and continued to be rude. We have e-mailed the place for an explanation, nothing. We will never return after their disgusting rendition of customer service.

Jesmond caters little for the hungry vegetarian on a sunday morning, so myself and a friend ended up at this self-styled retro eatery, where after a basic breakfast of poached eggs on toast, juice and a pot of tea we were presented smilingly with a bill for £18.
I've had much superior breakfasts and enjoyed better atmosphere in greasy spoons. No amount of vintage furniture and charmless tat is going to dress up this kind of greed.

Best coffee in Jesmond and equal best in Newcastle try ALL of their freshly baked cakes and quality ingredient sandwiches. Starbucks must be taking a hit from this place.

Cafe in Newcastle's Hampstead. Part of the Jesmond Methodist church complex, the w.c.s etc shared with the church. Old and recycled furniture and artefacts, generally young clientele. Not too pretentious. Worth a visit.
