The Northern Star Cafe was one of my favourite lunch spots 20 years go, so I was keen to see if it was still as good on a recent visit. Yep, it is! It has changed little. Still looking like an old-fashioned milk bar and a little frowsy round the edges.The Italian dishes seem to have been supplemented by a... More

And it is in Hamilton, a suburb of Newcastle. Anyway, sit down table service at this nice little cafe. Small but perfectly formed as are many of the eateries on Beaumont St, it's pretty hard to find a dud. Lunch was excellent, well cooked and tasty with very generous portions. Various sauces are available for your steak, schnitzel or burger... More

Once again this cafe didn't disappoint...!! We had dinner here on the weekend and as always service was excellent and food was great. I quite often have the snitzel and hubby has the steak. Its always fresh and steak is cooked perfectly as my husband orders it ( medium rare). Servings are very generous too.

Again no complaints. A regular eating house for us but not attended since September 2016. A must for the smart people who enjoy quality food at sensible cost. Cheers and thanks again. Sets us up for a really great day out.

The lemon gelato is the best I've tasted in a long while - so smooth and creamy. The Seafood Spaghetti was great - I couldn't finish it all. Lots of people so the food was good. Huge variety of Italian food.

We dropped in Beauxmont St for lunch not knowing where to go. But for ease of decision making I pointed to the cafe right where we parked because, why not? It's just in front of me. The regular pastas were significant in serving sizes and comes with 2 slices of buttered bread on the side. It was delicious and very... More

This place has been around as long as I can remember. I haven't frequented it all that much over that time although it does have a strong local following. At first appearance it looks very average - much like many old Italian restaurants. The decor is very average and out dated. The food is typically family style Italian. It's not... More
