Just my cup of tea!

The art gallery is splendid and The Factory Kitchen upstairs equally so (not to be confused with The Artisan Restaurant downstairs). This small, relaxing cafe has a lovely atmosphere, even on a stormy day! The furnishings are quirky, I love the glass topped tables. The views across Newcastle are fascinating. The freshly prepared food is delicious, as is the pot of tea. If lunching here, a top tip would be to arrive early ie midday’ish as the cafe fills up very quickly!

Another rainy day so decided to break up the afternoon with a visit to the art gallery and a ‘coffee and cake’. What a pleasant surprise! The coffee was some of the nicest I have had. My husband had a slice of what I think was a blueberry bakewell. He was impressed and he knows cake! It was really good. Fresh, ‘homemade’ taste. The cafe has a nice atmosphere, the view is really interesting. The food looks very appealing. We shall return. We would recommend to all. Thank you.
