Exactly what it says on the tin, Little Coffee Shop Under the Bridge is a little coffee shop under a bridge.

Its intimate seating area next to the Quayside is as fulfilling and gorgeous as expected, and the coffee is up to scratch too.

That perfect blend of coffee quality and view is paired perfectly here, with a variety of usual coffees on offer.

Coffee on the Quayside

That ideal blend between quality coffee and consistent pricing is found at Coffee on the Quayside.

The riverside business can be found serving up coffee for those on the go, just up the road from Pitcher & Piano.

Coffee on the Quayside is open from 7:15am to 2:30pm and seems like a perfect spot for workers passing through the area.

CatPawCino Cat Cafe

Hard luck for those allergic to cats, but another Quayside establishment serving up good coffee’s with fluffy friends marks itself as a thoroughly unique place.

Cats wander around while you eat and drink, with the chilled-out cat cafe providing plenty of options for food and drink.

The Staiths Cafe

A little ways out from the other shops, but still sticking close to the idyllic River Tyne is The Staiths Cafe.

The dog-friendly place can be found close to the Tidal Basin and serves up a variety of soups, salads and fresh bread.

Plenty of coffee and cakes are on offer too.

Liosi’s Sicillian Cafe Bar

Another cafe a bit out of the way for those venturing down to the Quayside for the market, but well worth the trip.

The cafe is open seven days a week from 8:30 to 5pm, with fresh food offered by local artisan bakers.
