Very nice, friendly cafe. The coffee was excellent and the cakes and tray bakes fabulous - fresh and very tasty. Very tempting looking lunch & breakfast menu, will have to stop for lunch next time we are in the area.

Lunch stop when traveling from Newcastle to Carlisle. Very friendly cafe, quite busy for a weekday lunchtime in November, which gave the place a nice buzz. Soup and toasted sandwich were delicious and the coffee was truly excellent. Nice spot just by the abbey.

Delicious lunch at this friendly cafe. My eggs benedict and my friend's vegetarian chilli were both very tasty, as were the cakes / traybakes. Fantastic and very varied range of teas to choose from and a lovely location opposite the abbey.

Called in here for a quick coffee whilst visiting Hexham. Ordered the cheese scone and can only say it was fabulous. Great service from the team on duty that day too.
