Rustic Cup

Rustic Cup espresso bar and kitchen in Whitley Bay is a vibrant cafe by day, and a relaxed bar by evening.

The specialty coffee is provided by local roastery Baristocracy, where Australian-born barista Alex has been roasting, blending and brewing coffee for most of his life. The coffee scene in Australia is a different animal to the North East, and together, Rustic Cup and Baristocracy are bringing the scene to Whitley Bay – try it, we guarantee you’ll love it.

Rustic Cup also offers delicious healthy food and drinks, local craft beers, a selection of wines, spirits, and classic cocktails too, that are all presented with a signature Rustic twist, quality, and consistency.

The cakes are made fresh by the chef each morning – our Editor Laura is obsessed with the carrot cake which is SO moist and delicious.

As a family business, a warm welcome is guaranteed, so make sure you say hello to Lee when you visit.
