Came to Newcastle with my partner, it was my first time, and we decided to grab some lunch when we arrived. Found this cafe in google maps and I'm so glad I did, the food was delicious, my scrambled eggs were cooked perfectly and my boyfriend enjoyed his toastie, the staff were very friendly and the view of the ocean...

Went here for lunch a few days ago and wanted to give them some feedback. Hope they read this. My coffee wasn't that warm, my eggs were overcooked - totally solid, not runny in any way. I had a small dab of labne on my plate, and really, my whole dish was very dry to eat with not that much... More

Hey there, I'm really surprised to see this review. Our eggs are normally bang on and our labna is portioned into serves people often don't use all of. Also my staff are awesome and I hire them because they genuinely do care. We'd absolutely have made you that coffee and those eggs again if you had mentioned it to us.... More

Went with our daughter who was excited about taking us to Escobar for lunch. A three of us were disappointed as the food was very bland. My wife's poached eggs were over cooked and generally it did not look as if anyone making the meals cared too much. Coffee was not bad and the service was ok.

First time in Newcastle and fantastic first experience at Estabar. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, and the food just delightful! The chef cooked with extra love and care, which showed in our dishes. Both the Early Bird Toastie and Breakfast Bruschetta were very yummy! Will go back again tomorrow!

I go there quite often to catch up with staff in an informal setting. The coffee is always excellent and the other day I had the breakfast option of smoked ham toast. Good flavour and texture combination and the pesto on top was nice.

Stopped here for breakfast. Amazing view of the beach from the window bench seats. Great coffee. I had scrambled eggs on toast with ham, was good sized serving and came on thick toast. The ham was divine.

Came for breakfast. We both ordered poached eggs with smoked ham toast and labne with a cappuccino. After quite a wait our breakfast arrived. The eggs were hard boiled and very dry. The ham was not very nice, tasted like it was going off. So it was a plate with some cold ham that was not very nice, two hard... More

I came here with my friend who has a mental disability and the staff were very nice and accommodating. The brownie we purchased was immaculate and thick with flavour. The only downside is the small size of this establishment, but they have done a good job without seating plan to reduce the clutter.

Thanks for squeezing in to see us Sterling S ;) we are a tad on the small size which means we all get rather close, which is maybe nice! I'm glad we looked after you well and you enjoyed your brownie. Hope to see you again soon, Cheers Bec More
