This little cafe in Sandyford is definitely worth a visit for their Nutella, salted caramel and banana pancake stack, as well as all the brunch classics like smashed avo and eggs. They've also got an amazing range of cakes on offer, but it gets super busy so worth booking before you miss out.

Yolo Townhouse

Yolo Townhouse is a hidden gem just off Grey Street and is a must-try for your next brunch outing. Serving breakfast all day long, their Full English will cure hangover and they also have great deals, like 2-4-1 on all hot drinks before noon and 50% off all food on Thursdays!

Quay Ingredient

Located under the Tyne Bridge, Quay Ingredient is the go to if you're feeling like brekkie at any time of the day on the weekends. For brunching on a budget, try the cinnamon pancakes (very cheap) or breakfast sandwiches (even cheaper), or there's always the truffle oil scrambled eggs if your overdraft can handle it.

Monsieur Crepe Cafe

Another place serving brekkie all day long, Monsieur Crepe Cafe in Heaton is the perfect affordable spot for anyone with a sweet tooth. They have an amazing range of crepes with as many toppings you could imagine, like banana, ginger and toffee or peach and white chocolate.

Although we've told you that these are some of the most delicious brunch spots in Newcastle, don't just take our word for it! Go and check them out ASAP (and don't forget to tag us on Insta)
