WoW... Where to start... You definitely donot expect to find this type of high end cuisine at a Metro Station, totally blown away by the friendly, hospitality, and unusual choice of menu. As soon as you step through the door you are greeted with a friendly face and welcome, nothing is too much trouble, the only down side is having to decide what to eat from the varied menu as everything sounds and looks fantastic. We had the Chicken Kiev & the Butternut Squash Lasagne with Goats Cheese, they definitely didnot disappoint, great service and fabulously tasty food. Mocha Latte was to die for and you must try the Belgian Waffle or Eton Mess, definitely not for the faint hearted, a great tummy pleaser. We shall be returning again as the whole feel, look and taste of the Brown Sugar lounge is amazing, well done to the owners & staff,5* from us x

The cafe is located on Monkwearmouth Metro station so is very handy for anyone travelling by train.

The items on the menu include some ingredients that are not run of the mill, we had goats cheese and butternut lasagne and French toast with fresh fruit, both of which were delicious. Also good selection of scones and homemade cakes.

Seems to have regular clientele which is a good recommendation, indeed one of the regulars said we must try the blueberry cheesecake next time which we intend to do.

Service very good, staff very pleasant and chatty and really good value for money.

There is a car park next door but full with people using Metro, we parked in Whitley Bay town centre car park and walk to cafe ( about half a mile).

First time visiting brown sugar lounge, my partner and I popped in for coffee and scones. The scones were lovely and fresh and tasty, it's not often you find somewhere who makes homemade scones. The presentation was lovely and it really makes a difference how your food is presented! Cappachino's were very good too, will definatley go back and try other food. Shame the room wasn't bit bigger and such a shame its closed Wednesdays as that's when I take my mam out for lunch!
