Most Instagrammable cafe in Newcastle​

Hello my gazelles, I hope you’re all doing well.

Last Thursday I went to the relaunch of the Great British cupcakery because they had a  makeover. The refurbishment is absolutely stunning and to be honest with you, the cafe now looks beyond amazing.

Shoutout to all the content creators and bloggers in the North East, You no longer have to go to London to get you a pink latte or to pose in front of floral walls.

For me, The Great British Cupcakery has always been a good spot to take some delicious looking photos that are perfect for social media.

I remember every time I go and post my big milkshake or my cute cupcake, my friends and followers end up messaging me and asking me about the name of the cafe so that they can go and get their hands on some mouthwatering treats.

I’m so glad that I have attended the relaunch, as I had so much fun meeting new people while sipping my coffee and enjoying the lovely buffet.

Naomi Carpenter the marketing manager was lovely, she made sure she spoke to everyone and she was one of the main reasons why the night was very successful.

I mean a good event =  friendly event organisers, good food and good music right?

Did I mention that they gave us goody-bags as well!

 

 

The Cupcakery’s parlour is open daily serving coffee, tea, lemonade, freshly-baked cupcakes, waffles and sandwiches.

You can order bespoke cakes for all occasions by visiting their website GBcubcakery

They also have an Instagram page that’s so visually appealing and beautiful, so give them a follow

This was my outfit for the re-launch of the cafe. I got this suit from Zara last year however, I found something that’s very similar here and here

My heels are from Marks&Spenser, they’re out of stock but I found something similar and more suitable for winter here

Meli’s Greek cafe, the best in town #Newcastleupontyne

Hello coffee lovers, I’m back with my coffee reviews lol. Back in Feb my friend said she wanted to take me to this new cafe called Meli and I obviously agreed.

The cafe is run by the cutest couple from Greece, which explains that the name Meli is actually a Greek word that means honey.

The cafe provides snacks, coffees, teas, different drinks including smoothies and they also have sandwiches and their soup of the day.

My favorite thing about Meli’s is that their coffee is strong, the atmosphere is very cozy and warm.
The owners will make you feel that you’re home, they’re very smiley and friendly.
I would highly recommend you to try their Freddo cappuccino in the hot weather, love how they sprinkle some cinnamon on top, so yummy.
Their olive oil chocolate cake is so spongy and it has fewer calories than regular chocolate cakes.
They keep making different soups and omg they were absolutely delicious.

Pros:
  • Vegan options available
  • Healthy snacks
  • Fresh smoothies/food
  • Greek music creating an ( ambiance )
  • Different cakes/new recipes

  • Only cash payments

Overall I would say that it’s definitely my favorite cafe in Newcastle so far, with the lovely interior, very light enjoyable food with your loved ones, and the best customer service ever.

Best Cafes in Newcastle upon Tyne ​

Hello everyone, I hope you’re doing well. Today we’re going to talk about coffee, and you know how much I love me a good cup of coffee. Newcastle now has a good range of local independent cafes, serving coffee in every imaginable style. So here is some of my top picks.

  •  Di Marco/ Antico

IMG_6379 2

Antico, previously called Di Marco is a very small Italian cafe bar. They make the perfect foamy Italian cappuccino, and I am obsessed with their iced coffee. The staff are very bubbly and always smiling. Thier customer service is outstanding and they’ll always come to your table to make sure your coffee is up to standards.

Address: 93 Grey St, Newcastle upon Tyne NE1 6EG

  • Osbourne coffee co ( OCC )

If you’re ever in town shopping, specifically at  Fenwicks or even passing by and want a quick caffeine pick-me-up, then I highly suggest trying OCC. The coffee tastes delicious but it can be a bit strong if you’re not used to it.

Address: 39 Northumberland St, Newcastle upon Tyne NE1 7AF ( Fenwicks food hall )

 

  • Camber Coffee

  • Deiji Cafe

Very relaxing and different, that’s how I can describe Deiji, I think by far they’re the only cafe that does the Insta-famous, Smurf latte as well as the matcha latte and the blooming tea. Definitely worth a try, very sweet staff and they provide a student discount.

  • Laneway&Co

Côte’s taste of Paris in Newcastle

 French inspired dining , Côte Brasserie in  Grainger Street, Newcastle Upon Tyne

unnamed

Hello my gazelle’s I hope you’re all doing well,

You don’t know how excited I am to share with you what I call a breakfast heaven!
I can now officially say that I have found the perfect place for the perfect delicious breakfast.
While I was out in the morning running errands with mama, I looked at her and came out with the best idea ever and said ‘ Mama can I take you to have a  breakfast at Côte ? She obviously couldn’t say no hehe.

We made our way to Côte and  from the moment we entered the place we’ve received the best service ever, I was happy and mama was smiling.

W’ve been asked where we would like to sit and picked a nice table near the window. By the time we decided what we wanted to eat, Adam came and took our orders.

What’s on the breakfast menu?

They had so many options from pastries, to salmon, avocados, to French toast and cooked breakfasts like sausages and beans, pretty much anything that your heart and mouth desires.

I asked him if they made almond milk cappuccino and he replied saying they only had soy milk so I asked for a juice.

Mama got salmon and poached egg with some brown toast and camomile tea، and I ended up ordering French toast, and a glass of fresh orange juice.

 Star of Côte:

I can’t describe how artistic and kind Adam was, from the moment he came to take our order, me and him started chatting and we got a long pretty well, he made such effort to surprise me with a cappuccino beside that he left the place to go buy almond milk. Love him !

Oh yeah he brought the cappuccino and he was like : it’s on us !

overall:

I really enjoyed the whole experience, food was very tasty, cappuccino was perfect and I can tell that it has been made with love, the juice was absolutely delicious. The French toast was nice and crunchy from the outside and very fluffy and soft from the inside.       I also asked mama about her opinion and she said that I’ve picked the right place

( believe me it’s kind of hard for me to take mama for food, she tarveled to more than 25 countries and visited the best hotels and food places, seeing her pleased with the food is such a big achievement)

I even gave my dad a call to come a along with my little sister and come to join us. They ended up coming and they enjoyed their breakfast too.

To me everything was great, and the location itself couldn’t be more central and perfect, and both of the atmosphere and decor were stunning.

Will I go back ?

I will definitely go back again to try their cooked food for lunch/dinner, but so far am very satisfied for what I had as a first experience at Côte. to be fair I can keep going and going on how much I loved and enjoyed everything.
