Beautiful home made cakes, hot fresh coffee perfect. Restaurant is clean and the staff friendly. Access from front street and from main public car park at rear.

I have eaten here a few times and have enjoyed lunch and breakfast but mostly visit for the delicious cakes and scones. Nice covered conservatory type area at the back. Would highly recommend.

I usually really like this place but was disappointed on my recent visit. I wanted a light vegan lunch but my only option was jacket potato and beans. Mediterranean veggies on a wrap wouldn't be hard to provide or some sort of humous, either would have been lovely. Pity. On another animal free day I will have to be elsewhere.

Hi janoliNorthumberland Thanks for your review. I can only apologise that you were not offered more choice. I was not in on the day you came/reviewed, and as we always have a vegetarian soup and salads you should have been offered more choice, even if they are not on the menu we do try to accommodate as best we can....

Fed the ducks and gulls of Morpeth before stopping here for a light luncheon and a warming drink. Staff very friendly, the cafe is very clean and the food was homely and delicious. We both had soup (sweat potato and a ham broth) and a magnificent homemade scone each. Mam had a pot of tea and I went for a... More

Cafe des Amis is a great place for coffee or light lunch where everything looks really apppertising. I counted a choice of ten cakes! As everything is homemade it was delicious.What a great choice the menu has and the specials. This cafe is really popular and full right back to the conservatory at back. Excellent service and good loos!

A sign says "Enter as strangers, leave as friends"...and that's exactly how you feel when you spend any time at the aptly named cafe of friends. Service is so friendly, the homemade soup is just what you need on a cold winter's day. The cakes are to die for and the atmosphere is simply lovely. A delightful homey place to... More

On a cold and windy day we enjoyed a hearty gammon broth with cheese scones followed by a very nice Coffee and walnut cake washed down with a good filter coffee

Cafe des Amis serves the most delicious soup and scone -perfect for chilly Autumn days. Or, if you have a sweet tooth, try the rhubarb and ginger combo!

We sought Cafe Des Amis out after reading reviews on here - making sure to have a long walk around Carlisle Park first to work up an appetite - and we were rewarded with the best cake in the world and the warmest welcome. We had the Jamaican Chocolate Chip cake and the Chocolate, with the former being so good... More

Mostly great reviews on this brilliant cafe, however, some of the negative remarks can only be said to be petty and irrelevant. The cakes are to die for, having tried quite a few and being very critical of other people's cooking, I can say that with all sincerity. This time round I tried a scone with coffee, both were delicious.... More
