Pink Coffee Cafe, Newcastle

I found this cafe near Newcastle station whilst waiting for a train. It’s very handy being only across the road from the station. A very friendly cafe with a good atmosphere which seemed to be popular with local people on their way to work. It is a great place for breakfast or brunch as there is a good selection ranging from porridge with berries to baguettes with avocado and tomato. I had a tasty toasted ham and cheese croissant. Free wifi too.

Laing Art Gallery Cafe, Newcastle

The Laing Art Gallery in Newcastle is always worth a visit and it also has a welcoming cafe with helpful staff. There is a good choice of home-cooked food with daily specials. On the day I visited there was chilli con carne with a baked potato, and tortilla crisps.The cakes and local stotties also looked good. On my next visit I plan to try the fishcakes. E
