Eating in the NE - Garden Kitchen

Today is payday, and I celebrated with cake and coffee at the Garden Kitchen in Eldon Square. I'm wild, I know.

With me a) loving cake and b) eating a lot of cake, it really is a crime that I have lived in Newcastle for almost two years and never been to the Garden Kitchen. Seriously.

You could almost be forgiven for forgetting that you are in the middle of a shopping centre that resembles the home of Satan on a Saturday, as, tucked away in Eldon Garden, with relaxing music and surrounded by greenery, it really is the loveliest place to replenish your energy levels (shopping is hard work, ok).

One of my favourite things to do is go out for coffee and cake - it's just one of those little things that make me happy and Garden Kitchen didn't disappoint me in the slightest.

You can choose whether to sit in the bistro or cafe, depending on what you're after, whether it be breakfast or lunch, or just a quick coffee and slice of heaven cake. From a range of 6 types of sweet treats, I opted for a piece of flapjack which had a gorgeous vanilla icing and pieces of cranberry dotted on the top. I also had a latte, because obviously, and yes coffee lovers, you will not be disappointed.

The decor is just lovely - a mixture of garden benches and comfy sofas, with fresh flowers in small little watering cans as decoration. I was served by a lovely girl who was chatty and super helpful and I always think that makes such a difference.

If you are looking for somewhere a little different, with good quality food and drink but away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre, I would highly recommend heading to the Garden Kitchen.

Where have you been to eat recently?


  1. This place looks so pretty! I've lived in Newcastle most of my life and never been here omg.. is that bad? haha x] I didn't even know it was there! Anyhow, definitely will have to check this place out sometime looks super nice :)

  2. It's such a convenient place to stop for a cake break when you've been shopping too - crazy how I'd never been before! Definitely recommend it x
