I used to frequent this lovely coffee shop in the 1970s, but it is probably older than this. The coffee is still excelent.

We often visit Johanns for a Saturday afternoon pit stop. Delicious scones and cakes, and generous portions. The tea and coffee are served with a smile. Cannot fault this cafe. Have been visiting for years, it's a tradition, lovely!

My daughter & I had lunch here. The choice of sandwiches wasn't that good and we both had cheese savoury. The bread was very dry and the crusts so hard we had to leave them. At £4.25 (I think) each, it was a lot to...More

I have always visited Johanns from a young age, and as I have grown older I have began to appreciate the calm, temporary haven that it provides from a busy day shopping in central Newcastle. I visited last week with my Mum and Dad, on...More

The nicest aspect of tucked-away Johann's is the table service. If I wanted to serve myself I'd go to M&S, but Johann's policy is a little classier. A range of teas and coffees are on offer, with plenty to choose from in the cakes and...More

The first time I visited here, the dishwasher seemed to have broken down. To be fair, this was causing some disruption to service, but I would have expected the staff to inform customers of what was happening. The second time I visited, the facilities all...More
