Breakfast in Newcastle has never been easier, especially in the City Centre where plenty of options are available.

With classics like a full English breakfast listed alongside French equivalents, Côte Newcastle gives a bit of love to the recipes from across the English Channel.

Croques, breakfast cocktails and a few unique egg-related recipes are all on offer from the eatery, which serves regional classics and traditional breakfasts.


Breakfast doesn’t always have to be toast and juice, it could be a richly piled sweet treat with strawberries and Nutella.

Crêpeaffaire offers just that, a collection of sweet and savoury treats to start the day with, even offering up a smoked salmon and cream cheese crepe.

For the breakfast menu though, an all-day breakfast, eggs florentine and all the usual classics are available, but in crepe form.

Flat Caps Coffee

Artisan and independent coffees are often a far stretch better than anything else available, which is one of the many pointers that make Flat Caps Coffee so alluring.

A variety of breakfast pieces are available, from porridge and crumpets to eggs and sourdough toast pairings.

The Black and Bottle smoked streaky bacon sandwich uses local ingredients with eggs and butter, their website says.

Tyneside Bar Cafe

It’s almost impossible not to recommend a place with so much history rooted into its walls and location.

Tyneside Bar Cafe offers a delightful selection of breakfasting options and coffee choices, with the classic bacon and sausage sandwiches available alongside a selection of benedicts.

No breakfast is complete without coffee, and Tyneside Bar Cafe offers a great variety of those.


Blakes is the place to take yourself to on Grey Street. It is an embodiment of the area and the new wave of easygoing eateries serving great food.

A meal with a view is always idyllic, especially when a view as good as the one Queen Street Cafe has is available.

Veggie options are available as well as hot sandwiches, classic breakfasts and omlettes.


Sometimes, you can’t beat a classic. Sausage roll and a bottle of juice. Steak bake and a can of pop. Bacon rolls and a warm coffee. It’s the stuff dreams are made of.

No way around it. A firm staple of the North East, the culture of Newcastle, and a perfect example of just how good breakfast can get. No list is complete without it.

One for those on the go. For people who don’t want to sacrifice quality while they go about their day. There are so many of the places scattered around, it’s hard not to recommend it for a decent, consistent breakfast.
