This is a lovely wee place. Vintage china, lovely views, friendly staff. Menu slightly different to the norm, but great.

We loved the quiche and the bacon sandwich we ordered but there were loads of lovely fresh and original choices on offer. Scones were yummy too! Friendly, helpful staff and a toilet not to be missed! (You'll know when you see it!)

Possibly the only vegetarian place in Newcastle. It's a bit of a walk from the town but worth it. Good choice of food includes gorgeous tarts, pudding and cake.

Olive Bizarre is a delicious little spot in the harbour area of the town. You can enjoy exquisite teas/coffees with goodies galore and a view to die for. Our afternoon tea is highly recommended and our traybakes and scones will not fail to please. We have a vast range of savoury dishes and provide an array of gluten free and vegetarian foods. Our child friendly policy is also popular and to top it all our friendly team will make you feel very welcome. See you soon. John and Ciaraxox
