This local and independent cafe oozes trendiness with its bicycle sign, distressed floorboards, and its crowded interior with a mismatch jumble of tables and chairs. However, its image is not the only reason behind its considerable popularity. Every day brings coffee straight from the Newcastle roastery, and fresh scones, cakes and sandwiches – think salami, rocket and cream cheese bagels, or wensleydale and mango chutney sarnies. This laid-back venue is busy year round, as its customers spill out onto its courtyard tables where cushions and blankets are provided for the crispy Northern chill.
