We have had brunch here several times. It's usually quite busy, and the tables are quite close together which can make it feel a little cramped, but it's still a very enjoyable place to go. We've always enjoyed whatever food we've gone for!

We went the day after it was reviewed in The Guardian as one of the country's Top 50 Places for Breakfast. So not surprisingly - given it only has about 8 tables - we were told it would be a 20 minute wait. We took (excellent) take away macchiatos and lattes outside and in the end the wait was less...

Myself and a friend stayed overnight in Newcastle for a weekend, and fancied something nice for brunch. A quick google search brought this place up as one of the best places in the city so we wandered over! We had to wait approx 10-15 minutes for a table, but this was no problem as we were very well looked after... More

Wonderful breakfast in this tiny but very popular place to eat. Craster kippers were sublime. A tiny place under the best bridge in the world.

Been trying to get a seat here for breakfast for ages, finally did on a Monday morning off work! 2 large traditional breakfasts with 2 massive mugs of tea - excellent hangover cure and great value for money. The lady behind the counter was an absolute machine, seemingly running the show with her chef in the back frying the food.... More

This was recommended to us and did not disappoint. Excellent breakfast stottie and waffles. Glad I didn't go for the full English - it was massive! Friendly service and good value. Try it!

Visited the Quay Ingredient cafe for breakfast this morning, having tried unsuccessfully to get a table on a few occasions at lunchtime. It is a little cramped and there are only a few tables, but the excellent food and service more than make up for that. We had the Craster kippers with poached eggs which were delicious. The staff were... More

Stopped here for breakfast, had a full English with a proper sized cup of tea. Super friendly staff and very attentive. Food is of a very high standard. Would come again.

Visited this café about 10 to 4 on Monday afternoon, hoping for a bite to eat and a coffee. Kitchen closed alas. So headed off elsewhere. Won't be back.
