There’s nothing better than hitting up your local coffee shop for your favourite drink and a little snack. Whether you’re looking for somewhere to get some work done and fuel yourself with caffeine or have a wind-down and catch up with some pals over a slice of cake, we’ve got plenty of options for you to check out.
Found in the Grainger’s Market, Pumphrey’s Coffee has been roasting its own coffee since 1750 – and wow, have they perfected it in that time. Pumphery’s is a Newcastle favourite, with locals flocking to the café every day to grab their fix – whether you want to pop in and pick up a drink to go, or stay in and watch the market streets, this is one to add to your list.
While Horticulture might not technically count as a café, it’s one we absolutely couldn’t miss out on as we LOVE it here. Think cottage-core goals, with wicker swing chairs and houseplants galore. They offer the best brunch that you’ll find across the city, and the coffee is some of the best that we’ve tried. Horticulture is also open in the evenings, with a tapas-style menu on offer – look, we said it isn’t traditionally a coffee place, but it’s worth it, trust us.
Camber Coffee keeps it simple, but they’ve absolutely perfected that balance. It’s a hidden gem that you’ll be so happy you’ve stumbled across, offering drinks with coffee beans exclusively from Pilgrims coffee – so you know we liked that! Pilgrims is a small local roastery, providing seasonal and sustainable products which we’re all about. The menu is also all vegetarian or vegan-friendly, another win in our books.
Just down the road from our building – perfect for a quick pit-stop for anyone in the City Co-Living community, wink wink – Tiny Tiny is the best of every coffee shop ever. Top-tier coffee, incredible food, space to get your head down and get some work done, and it’s dog-friendly too; it simply couldn’t get any better.
