This cafe has a surprisingly wide menu. It is a friendly place situated in the heart of Hexham. My recent visit was for coffee and a lovely cheese scone.

We visited this cheerful and welcoming cafe on a grey miserable day in Hexham. It is an eclectic mix of everything (!!) run by charming and welcoming staff with good food- we can particularly recommend the pea & ham soup with lovely bread.

Decided to have a cuppa in this little cafe. Reminded me of the cafe my partner works in in carlisle. Amazing how you can go places and find similar small fun places to go and relax that feel like home :-D
