“Best Coffee in Newcastle”

Central Bean Coffee House Jesmond
Restaurant details
Reviewed August 15, 2013

Go here every time I can for coffee because its bar far the best I can find in Newcastle! Not much to shout about in terms of a place to sit (its very small) although there are some nice outside tables to watch the students strutting about and cars on Osborne Road. In simple terms the coffee is the star.

This is a rather small place that could be easily missed as visually there is not much happening with it. However, I'm glad I found it because the coffee here is amazing. I entered this place and did not know what to expect. The decor is modern if a bit weird apple green with some industrial touches and a bit of wood. Then there was some initial Miles Davis playing on the background and that was it! I decided to give it a try and there has been no turning back. The coffee is great and so is the service. I started going there frequently and everything is consistently good. Staff are really friendly and do have a good hand for their craft. Coffee is excellent and delivers in body and taste all the time (plus, there is some seriously cool latte art going on). There is also a range of light food (sandwiches, paninis, croissants, muffins and cakes) and the times I've tried them, they are fresh and make a great addition to a good cup of coffee. In addition, there have a variety of herbal teas. The size of the place can be an issue if it's cold outside as there is limited seating inside and a couple of people make the place look crowded but when weather is decent, there are tables and chairs outside and it is really pleasant. An additional bonus is that there is free WiFi and the password is visible on the counter so there is no registering or hassle with a card (like some of their competitors!). Prices are reasonable and will not break the bank, and are comparable to what is out there but the coffee is better than what's out there. Overall, this is a nice place to get your caffeine fix; and takes the coffee culture in Jesmond up a notch as in my view, it serves the best coffee in the area.
