Eating in the NE - Cafe 1901

They say you can't see things that are right under your nose, and Cafe 1901 in Jesmond was just that. Just a minute's walk from my abode, lies this little treasure - a place which couldn't be more welcoming if it tried. 

Scattered with ornaments, flowers, books and glossy mags, this is a cafe that dreams are made of, and I haven't even started blabbering on about the cake yet! Tucked away on the ground floor of the old Jesmond Methodist Church, you could be forgiven for completely passing it by, however the decoration of the interior, as well as the architecture, makes it a place you could never forget...

Cafe 1901 is not all show and no substance, oh no, as cake lovers, rejoice -  the banana and chocolate cake is pure heaven, and swilled down with a latte, what more could you want? With fantastic coffee, and great quality food, this is a place I will go back to again and again...and again! 

And come back again I did! Just two days after I had taken myself and my laptop for an outing there as motivation to crack on with a fantastically boring essay, I invited my friend there for an afternoon treat, and she loved it just as much as I do! The character of the place is really what makes it so special, and with such welcoming staff there, you just feel completely relaxed, comfortable and at one.

The effortless charm of Cafe 1901 is what so many places could only dream of creating. No fuss, no frills, just fab.


  1. This sounds lovely! :) I love cute little places you can go to eat cake and natter! :)

  2. People who works there are some of the sweetest people I've met. Save yourself some time and just go there. Everyone at LA venues here is sweet and ask how you've been, even though normally staff keep their heads down.
