National Picnic Week has arrived, so it seems like the perfect time to pack up the sunglasses, layer on the sun cream and roll out the blanket for a delicious picnic in NE1. Here are five of our favourite places in the Toon where you can pick up your picnic goodies...

From Nutella to baileys and even Oreo - there’s something for all chocoholics to fall in love with. Oh, and did we mention that you can buy brownie stuffed cookies too? So much chocolatey goodness under one roof! The Brownie Bar sells brownies in selection boxes, in packs of 6 or 12. The perfect grab and go box for picnics! You can grab a hot drink or milkshake in store too, perfect to pair with those gorgeous brownies.




The Naked Deli

Fancy a picnic with friends, but trying to be healthy and socially conscious? The Naked Deli has your back! The company is mindful of where its food comes from and takes many different dietary requirements into consideration. One of the few healthy take-out delis in Newcastle, it is perfectly accessible on Grey Street, a short walk in all directions to picnic hotspots. It serves up delicious food such as beef burgers, deli salads and Thai Chicken curries, but you can be assured that all of this food is ethically sourced and equally delicious. What’s better than that? They also sell cakes! All cakes are gluten and sugar-free as well as a gorgeous selection of vegan and protein cakes available too. Ethical, healthy and has cake? We love to see it!

Cake, Cake and more cake! Sweet Dreams Desserts is the perfect place for all things sweet! Selling a variety of cake, gelato, churros, waffles and crepes - there is a sweet treat for everyone at the picnic table. Fancy a drink to go alongside? Choose from a menu filled with cake shakes, daiquiris and a variety of slushes! This is a place you do not want to miss when buying picnic goodies. The name says ‘sweet dreams’ and it is definitely a dreamy place to go!

With a huge selection of foods, it’s a perfect grab and go if you’re in a hurry! Sweet or savoury, the choice is endless when you visit Mason + Rye. 




Frankie & Tony’s

Is it even a picnic if you don’t have a selection of delicious sandwiches? Frankie and Tony’s Sandwich Bar has stood in Newcastle for 18 years and is renowned for its amazing sandwiches. Ranging from your simple cheese savoury or ham and cheese to a Swiss new yorker (smoked cheese, pastrami, mustard and lettuce) they have every type of sandwich you could think of! What more? You can even choose what type of delicious bread your sandwich is served in. They all sound mouth-wateringly good, and the queues outside of returning customers proves this! They also sell cakes and flapjacks, so you can grab everything for your picnic in one place! Perfect.
