My wife and I had been walking the Streets of Newcastle exploring when we decided it was time to find somewhere for a spot of lunch and a cold drink. Stumbled on the Sprocket Roasters and were glad we did. Ordered Chocolate Milkshakes with Ice-Cream and both had the toasted Ham/Cheese/Tomato Croissants.

We needed something quick to eat and a coffee before our drive home. We are so glad we stopped here. The food menu is very simple so only good if you want toast or something small and quick. The coffee is absolutely fantastic. My partner and I's were both made perfectly!

Found this place completely by chance while exploring Newcastle. Great 70's retro feel without the shabbiness. Lovely high ceilings and comfortable seating. Very considered coffee and drinks menu. Friendly staff and kindness to elderly gentleman who didn't have the correct payment noted. Points added for good natured staff with respect shown to their locals and visitors alike. Wish there was... More

I like this trendy little café for it's gluten free sandwich, hot chocolate and cake options. It's a fave, although can be a little noisy when they are grinding coffee.

Came here for breakfast with kids and their grandparents. Very good for kids with lots of toys. Coffee was great. Food was good, although it was a bit slow. Interesting decor, nice building.
