People very friendly and the coffee was really nice, but I did not return here the next day because I had to wait so long to get my take away coffee.

Really good coffee here, food is simple but also good. I had ploughmans breakfast which was tasty, not too big (I hate massive serves) and the salami was yum! Two coffees definitely set us up for the day !!

This is my go to place when I am in Newcastle. The coffee is delicious and the cafe itself has a warm, rustic and contemporary vibe which i love! The food is prepared fresh and i especially love the chia pudding they do! I will keep coming back for sure.

This is a busy little cafe with great ambience and a relaxed, trendy atmosphere. You order at the counter and have to try and find somewhere to sit or a table to share with others. The coffee took about 20 minutes to arrive but it was worth the wait. It's not the best place for a private conversation as you... More

I stopped in here to do a bit of work on my laptop. The Good Brother is a great place for a good coffee and catch up with friends. Enough seating inside and a good ambience. Expect to pay $4-$5 for a large coffee and between $6-$12 for food. Some of the cakes are pretty good. The service was friendly... More
