BREW & BITE

This neighbourhood hangout holds a special place in the hearts of Heaton locals, and it’s easy to see why. As well as offering up only the most mouth-watering, lip-smacking and tastebud-tingling of sweet treats all day, every day – think white chocolate and raspberry cruffins, cinnamon buns, banoffee pies, and pecan and chocolate tarts – this speciality coffee shop also loves to welcome in your four-legged friends so they can get a slice of the action, too.

CAKE STORIES

We’re huge fans of this family-run cakery, who have cakehouses in both Jesmond and Ouseburn, now. In both, light, bright and colour interiors combine with delightful light bites, tea, coffee and (in the Jesmond branch, at least) even cocktails to provide us with the perfect place to come together with friends, family, colleagues and, most importantly, pets and put the world to rights.

 

HLN Top Tip: You cannot come here and not try their vegan Oreo monster cake. It’s just too good.

MONSIEUR CREPE CAFÉ

Monsieur Crepe Café is a pancake lover’s dream. All types of pancakes are on the menu here: crepes – both sweet and savoury – as well as fluffy, American-style stacked pancakes drizzled in maple syrup. And you won’t go thirsty, either, with coffees, teas and speciality milkshakes sure to bring a smile to any breakfast dates with your four-legged mates in tow.
