I have started to visit the coffee shop on my cycle rides along the Tyne. What a find this is, perched on the banks of the Tyne in a picturesque setting. They serve quality food at value for money prices.

On my latest visit, I had a sausage and fried egg sandwich in brown bread. What a dream, probably one of the best freshly made sausage and fried egg sandwiches I've ever had and I told them so, not often I do that.

Sadly, I couldn't resist a piece of cake to accompany my sandwich (pictured), once again as good as it gets! They have a good selection of cakes and scones.

Don't miss this well maintained, friendly coffee shop!

Called here for a light lunch after a walk. The entrance was dingy, no welcoming signs except for the toilets - which also could be improved.
At 2pm on a sunny saturday there were no customers. After looking around wondering if it was open I walked to the counter, to be studiously ignored by three staff.
Eventually one deigned to notice me and took my order. A warm welcome - no it wasn't.
When our food came (toasted paninis) it was uninspiring - appeared not to have been freshly prepared, the panini was tough and the filling bland.
The only redeeming feature - two (or three?) young slim & polite waitresses. Perhaps Morticia (lady in black) could learn to smile?

Sad to hear you were disappointed
Firstly the entrance is not the most inviting but I've tried my best to cheer up a garage which is what the area was used for by the council
It's still a work in progress and all profits made are ploughed back into the business to make improvements- however Rome wasn't built in a day and I'm quite proud of my achievements
so far

Hopefully you found the actual cafe a bit more comfortable

I'm sorry you weren't impressed with the good however I can guarantee that all good is prepared and cooked to order
If you had mentioned your concerns to the team they would have tried to fix the problem or offer a refund - that is our policy

Nice little cafe, very reasonably priced and we always enjoy it before our during our walks. They have indoor and outdoor seating and dogs are welcome. Popular with walkers and cyclists as it's on the Keelmans Way route. We always enjoy this place and would highly recommend it.
