....well not quite, but this is the first cafe I've come across in Newcastle and surrounding areas that could be up there with the Butterfly Cabinet in Heaton (a firm favourite of mine for years).
I love the decor, right up my street. The only thing I'd say about it is it is very cramped and difficult to move about, no room really for wheelchairs or pushchairs.
I had a cheese and tomato croissant £3.50 if I remember correctly and hot chocolate which I don't remember the exact price, but I think the prices are in line with other higher end cafés (obviously not a greasy spoon). My food and drink were tasty, only wish there had been a bit more of it! I must be greedy though because I find many restaurants and cafés now serve fairly small portions in my eyes.
My personal only real downer about this place was I really wish there had been some music, it was lacking atmosphere and seemed a bit stiff. There were no younger crowds in, perhaps it was just timing, as it was a Tuesday lunchtime but I was surprised as this cafe was right on trend and thought it would have a steady flow of students and young professionals.
Either way I'll definitely be back next time I'm in Jesmond to try it out again.
