I’m from a family of foodies, which means that days out are often structured around trying out all the new places my mum has heard recommendations about. Obviously, there are far worse hobbies to be a part of so when my parents suggested a day out to Newcastle to try Olive and Bean and do some shopping, I was quick to agree.
While my mum settled on french toast with maple syrup and fresh fruit, which was also very tasty (I might have snuck a bite while she wasn’t looking).
Dad decided on poached eggs on toast but guarded it rather more vigilantly than Mum so I can only give you his verdict: a big thumbs up!
The cafe itself has a very relaxed feel, with uber friendly staff and good coffee. Pair that with delicious food and I was sold. Oh and did I mention the impressive display of cakes I’m determined to try next time?!
Not bad at all.
I’m sure it won’t be long until I’m back again and can report on the rest of their menu and baked goodies.
Have any of you ever been? If so, what did you think?
