Working in Newcastle, breakfast at Good Brother ( close to the Novotel). Always good coffee, went for the granola rather than my traditional avocado toast. Delicious with fresh fruit. Good and friendly service too.

Intriguing little place. Nice to enter & with a trendy decor & vibe. Staff cool and friendly. Coffee is excellent, and food pretty good too. My vegetarian bruschetta was wholesome, hearty & real. All in all pretty good, and clearly an established institution with the locals.

I look forward to our excellent coffee every week. Always consistently good, friendly staff, very relaxed atmosphere. I would rate the coffee in the top 3 in Newcastle, and I am a coffee snob 😁

People very friendly and the coffee was really nice, but I did not return here the next day because I had to wait so long to get my take away coffee.

Really good coffee here, food is simple but also good. I had ploughmans breakfast which was tasty, not too big (I hate massive serves) and the salami was yum! Two coffees definitely set us up for the day !!

This is my go to place when I am in Newcastle. The coffee is delicious and the cafe itself has a warm, rustic and contemporary vibe which i love! The food is prepared fresh and i especially love the chia pudding they do! I will keep coming back for sure.

This is a busy little cafe with great ambience and a relaxed, trendy atmosphere. You order at the counter and have to try and find somewhere to sit or a table to share with others. The coffee took about 20 minutes to arrive but it was worth the wait. It's not the best place for a private conversation as you... More

Coffee good, service slow. Not particularly busy Sat am. Five on staff. All pleasant enough, but young barista not coping with the work flow...

Delicious coffee and food with good service and ambience. Generous portions for my breakfast and care taken over the coffee presentation (important to me!).

Thank Emma M
