If you live in or around Newcastle or are thinking of visiting there and you have a sweet tooth, here are two amazing cafés that you need to go and try.

Cake Stories

12 Brentwood Avenue

Opening Hours:
Monday to Friday – 9am to 9.30pm
Saturday – 9am to 9.30pm
Sunday – 10am to 9.30pm

Phone: 0191 908 6812

If you live in the centre of Newcastle, Cake Stories is only two minute metro ride away. It is a lovely small and cosy cafe that sells a large variety of food: bagels, soups, sharing plates and cakes, along with hot and cold drinks. My friends and I had the smoked salmon, cream cheese and avocado bagel and the Camembert sharer, which were all lovely, as were the iced teas. The selection of cakes were also amazing, from red velvet to elderflower gin and tonic; they also included gluten free options. They also box any cakes up for you to take home if you can’t decide between a few choices, which you inevitably won’t be able to.

The Great British Cupcakery 

15 Queen Street
NE31 3UG

Opening Hours: 
Monday to Friday – 10am to 5pm
Saturday – 10am to 6pm
Sunday – 10am to 5pm 

Phone: 0191 230 2151

The Great British Cupcakery is truly a hidden gem in Newcastle. It’s the perfect pit stop on the way to the Quayside, tucked down a side street by the Tyne Bridge. It is the most beautifully decorated place in the Toon, with flower walls and cherry blossom. It is perfect for your next Instagram photo. If you love any sort of sweet treat treat, this place is for you. They serve a variety of cakes and sweet snacks; however, their cupcakes are truly to die for, especially the malteaser ones. They also serve sandwiches as well as tea and coffee and you can even book afternoon teas. The staff are particularly lovely and accommodating. Overall, it’s a great place to spend an hour or so.
