I think it's gone a little hipster; but this is not a bad thing . Perhaps more well known and more popular as a result. Some things much better as... More

The staff are very friendly and the food just speaks for itself. I cannot remember the last time I have had as good a meal. the ingredients were fresh and... More

Found this cafe on TripAdvisor when we decided we wanted an alternative to the usual spot we went to in Newcastle, and we were not disappointed! Cosy cafe with great little atmosphere, friendly and efficient staff, great service and an extremely tasty breakfast. We had the small fry and the breakfast burrito both were fab but I personally recommend the... More

Our meal was fantastic, I had squid to start which was delicious, then fish for main course which was beautiful and we all shared a huge slice of delicious cheesecake and a selection of cheese. The restaurant was cosy and inviting, the service was prompt and friendly and the food portions were generous and delicious. A really lovely experience that... More

Best brunch we have eaten in a long time. Avocado was beyond excellent - and just that bit different from served elsewhere! Fabulous service, location and value. What a great find.

Overlooking Newcastle’s picturesque sea front, Sea Salt offers new flavours & old favourites. Moreover, we take great pride in serving specialist coffees.

We are passionate about quality; our coffee and food come from the best local suppliers we can find and are prepared with care. Before opening we did a lot of research to choose our house blend, a deliciously well-rounded coffee, and we also host a ‘Coffee of the Month’ for those who like to experience new and distinctive tastes. And let’s not forget the food! Our all day brunch menu boasts lots of flavour and has something to satisfy all appetites.
