I visited Newcastle recently and visited Butterfly Cabinet for breakfast... twice. It was that good. Firstly, seating is like an old pub, lots and lots of seats, we waited about 5 minutes the first time, but I can't complain and it was a sunny day so not too much to complain about. Food. LOTS on the menu and it was... More

I came on a morning when my wife was on a day off and we wanted something different, a friend suggested we tried this location out... Walking in we found it very welcoming and very quirky..(almost wacky!) we felt at home immediately. The food was brilliant and the service was even more special and personalised than we thought. I would... More

This is a really quirky place! Judging by the decor and remnants of fixtures such as the bar I would guess this used to be a pub. Now it feels like a pub where people go to eat and not drink, although you can of course drink here too! We arrived for an impromptu lunch mid-week in March. The place... More

We went in for breakfast last week and noticed it was pretty quiet, we noticed someone on the next table leave without eating their meal, but we stayed as previously it had been okay, the service had always been pretty bad but the food made up for it. When the food came out, my vegetarian breakfast had two rashers of... More

When I first moved to Newcastle over a decade ago, I read an article citing the top ten things to do while in Newcastle. Breakfast at this brilliant cafe (in its previous guise as Belle & Herbs) was on that list and, 11 years on, I can't really argue with its inclusion on the list. It's been one of my... More

Visited the butterfly cabinet for breakfast. Had been before and really enjoyed. Terrible visit this time, ordered apple and cinnamon pancakes arrived (to my opinion) uncooked and raw. Politely asked staff to return to the chef and it was plonked back in front of me and informed that the chef said it is cooked. No offer to change my order... More

Kathryn, We apologize. This was a gaffe on our side. Regardless of whether or no we believe a dish to be cooked, it has - and always will be - our policy to redo the meal if a customer expresses concern. Your meal should not have been returned - that's bloody awful customer service. We've had a word with the... More
