Whether it’s anything from a cheap fry up to a posh late brunch you’re after, Newcastle has got it covered! With café’s, pubs and restaurants dotted all throughout the city centre, along with a vast collection in Jesmond and Heaton, as students you’ re spoilt for choice!
When talking breakfasts, where else is there to start other than the sovereign of the traditional English breakfast, Wetherspoons. A near doctor prescribed remedy for a hangover after a big night out, Wetherspoons allows you to reclaim your day without spending a fortune! With various pubs such as The Keel Row and The Five Swans in the City Centre, The Quayside and The Job Bulman in Gosforth, along with many others, you are never too far away to try their cheap and cheerful breakfast selection.
If you’re looking for Breakfast in the Jesmond area, a personal recommendation would be Arlo, on Brentwood Avenue. An adventurous breakfast/brunch menu with sophisticated dishes, such as their Egg Royale with spinach and smoked salmon, allows students to freshen up their pallets and try something different for breakfast – a far better option than the cold pizza from last night! This more cultured breakfast does come with added cost, but you can easily eat well with a cup of coffee, for under £15.
Everyone has a different preference for breakfast, and if quantity is your thing, then look no further than Longhorns. The barbeque smokehouse based in Newcastle recently began serving breakfasts, and aren’t we glad they did! Offering a breakfast special appropriately named ‘All In’, students with a sizeable appetite (all of them?!) will find their breakfast haven. The serving includes pancakes & waffles, oak smoked bacon, sausage patties, black pudding, fried tatties, breakfast beans, choice of fried or poached eggs & a shot of maple syrup on the side – not bad eh? Longhorns have one restaurant in the City Centre and one on Osborne Road, Jesmond; so the mammoth breakfast is easily accessible for students in Newcastle.
For those who are dedicated health enthusiasts, Newcastle offers plenty of breakfast opportunities for you also. One which comes with a great reputation for quick healthy cuisine is the Naked Deli. Offering a menu that not only is kind on the waist, but also tastes amazing, the Naked Deli is a must go for any student who is passionate about healthy eating and fitness. Among other things, they offer their nutritious Protein Bancakes which can be topped with pretty much anything you could possibly want. This wholesome student fuelling station can be found on Chillingham Road in Heaton, and is usually buzzing with vibrant staff.
A final breakfast recommendation is the, ever so popular, Butterfly Cabinet. Located on Heaton Road, the Butterfly Cabinet is an extremely favoured student breakfast destination - their thickly cut eggy bread served with maple syrup is a big favourite amongst the local student population. Although it can often be very busy in the late morning, we can promise it will be worth the wait, and judging by the many others seen queuing for a table it seems that we’re not the only ones who believe that!
As well as those mentioned there are plenty more brilliant breakfast venues, including Quay Ingredient on Queens Street, Pitcher and Piano on the Quayside and Ernest on Boyd Street - among many, many others.
