Great coffee? Great location! Nov 17, 2017
If you are going to call your coffee shop “Great coffee” you had better make sure that this is what you serve, and thankfully the coffee here is very good. It could equally have been called “Great location” and that is arguably the more important claim it could make. There are other places in Newcastle to get good coffee but few if any can boast a window overlooking the river in a prime people-watching spot. Furthermore (and surprisingly) it’s usually not difficult to get a table here, as much of the custom is for take-away coffee to fuel the many lawyers, solicitors etc who work around here, right next door to the law courts.

As for the coffee, it is reliably good here, and there’s a range of teas, hot chocolate and cold drinks too. Unlike many coffee shops, you can get a full English breakfast here, but the selection of pastries is perhaps less good than elsewhere. There’s also porridge and yoghurt, but on the whole this isn’t my favourite choice at this time of day. It’s better later on perhaps, when you want a mid-morning coffee or an afternoon mocha, and to sit a while and watch the world go by on the Quayside outside. There’s also apparently a good selection of lunchtime sandwiches, rolls etc., though we’ve not yet been here for lunch. I imagine it would get very busy with takeaway orders.

The décor here is bright and light, with large windows, pale wood tables and chairs (a few softer chairs are available but often snapped up) and some good black and white photos of local sights. There are newspapers available and a meeting room downstairs for hire.
