Stumbled upon this independent coffee shop/cafe today. Glad I hadn't just gone into the Costa a few doors down as planned. Quite a lot of seats, looks a little rustic, ie mismatched seats, scuffed wooden floorboards. There was a lovely homely smell though. There is...More

Said this was the place for breakfast. It is. But service needs to better organised, with staff getting in the way of each other. Excellent ambience. Visually a very nice cafe to take it easy. Good music. Good range of sandwiches. Not bad coffee either....More

Good option for a traditional full english breakfast in the centre of town. Good service, tasty food and decent coffee. Nice, relaxed visit when we were there (pretty early), starting to fill up as we left, but didn't feel rushed at all.

Taking a break from my healthy breakfasts I opted for a full English here. It's old school delivering great food at competitive prices. It can be busy but do persevere.

Blakes has long been the best and coolest breakfast place in Newcastle. Have visited so many times over the years without ever having a bad experience. Everything is reasonably priced and staff are great. Grab a newspaper and relax.

We were looking for somewhere near the railway station in Newcastle to eat a full English breakfast because that's what we'd promised ourselves! Not knowing the city, we stumbled upon Blake's, which advertises breakfasts on its outside board. When we arrived, there were few customers,...More
