The café was fairly busy for mid-morning on a Tuesday - given the fact that Arlo is located in the student area Jesmond, there was a refreshing mix of clientele. I was seated quickly and my waitress was efficient. The eggs royale was delicious, and...More

Whilst the food is good, the service is truly terrible. It’s impossible to get the waitresses attention and they often just walk past whilst you’re trying to catch their eye. I’ve even had to go up to the coffee bar just to pay the bill,...More

Loved this place, from the food to the service and the decor. We were accommodated quickly have 'gatecrashed' as a party of 12 and we all loved the place and food. Well worth a visit.

We have been going here for years...Lucas and the team are fantastic. The menu is always changing and the food is always top notch. We have converted many to Arlo's and will continue to do so. Keep up the good work 👍

Had the sourdough with avocado and chilli jams (without eggs) and it was the best tasting avocado on toast I've had! Would like there to be more vegan options.

We took our son to Uni and took him for what would probably be his last decent meal for 3 months. The place was busy with a good atmosphere but the staff were attentive and drinks arrived quickly. The menu is extensive and my son...More

Went earlier this week with my other half. The ambience is always lively and full of locals. The pork from the seasonal special menu was exquisite. The meat was tender and fill of flavour on the bed of chickpeas and veg. The fish finger burger...More
