A wake-up-and-smell-the-coffee moment at 1901 Caffé Bistro in Jesmond, Newcastle upon Tyne.
This cute and characterful vintage-style eaterie is housed in a church hall, dating back to 1901, and adjacent to Jesmond Methodist Church on St George’s Terrace.
It’s something of a retro charmer with cavernous interiors and high ceilings.
Inside it features an eclectic but charming collection of vintage knick-knacks, sink-into-me sofas and parquet flooring. It’s the sort of space that invites you to linger.
We enjoyed freshly-made home-made cheese and fruit scones, £2.30 each, and substantial bacon sandwich with creamy lattes. They offer a tempting selection of home-made cakes such as Victoria sponge, sticky orange and almond cake, and fruity flapjacks.
Pictured alongside our lattes are velvety soft Clinique Pop Lip Color in Melon Pop shade and shimmery Buxom lipgloss. Buxom is the sister brand to bareMinerals and is new and exclusive to Debenhams in the UK.
