This place is so over priced. As a coffee lover I was excited to try at flat caps...however the coffee wasn't anything special. Breakfast was lacking flavour and not particularly warm. This place looks cool but that's about it. Silly hipsters.

It took a bit of finding as I didn't know this part of Newcastle but it's only a few minutes from the bottom of Northumberland St. Amazing coffee, laid back staff, and awesome Nutella Brownies big enough for two. Give it a go!

Cozy little cafe tucked away under a strange little shop, difficult to locate. Service was fine, staff were ok, although not particularly friendly. The decor is quite quaint. Coffee was nice, but not hot enough. Food was good. Nice soup and a lovely goats cheese...More

I love this place! A real hidden gem in the city centre, tucked away from the crowds. Best coffee available in Newcastle, in my opinion. Can't wait for the new one to open!

We've built a reputation for doing some of the best coffee in the region whilst also working very hard to make your visit enjoyable with great service too.
