Newcastle’s Sweet Spots Serving Through Lockdown
Coffee stops and cake breaks during a busy shopping day in the toon are certainly a miss. But worry not, this fab range of city favourites are on hand to satisfy our sweet tooth cravings and provide our caffeine fix in lockdown. Here's how...
THE BROWNIE BAR
Our pals at The Brownie Bar are forever delivering the goods with their melt-in-the-mouth treats. Mix and match your favourite flavours from Malteser to salted caramel, Nutella, Oreo and more. Wait by your letterbox and your gooey brownies will pop through the door on Wednesdays and Thursdays using first class delivery.
We all know and love the Great British Cupcakery for delicious brownies, sumptuous cakes and goodies aplenty. While we can’t visit them in person to get our sweet tooth fix, they’re delivering the goods to our doors. Yes, you heard us, you can still indulge in your favourite treats from the comfort of your own home. Be quick, they sell out fast!
PINK LANE BAKERY
Fruity tarts and sweet Danish pastries? Yes, please! Our chums at Pink Lane Bakery are renowned for their beautiful baked goods, savoury and sweet. Stop by Monday to Saturday, 8am - 4pm to collect your lockdown goodies.
FLAT CAPS COFFEE
But first, coffee. Start each morning right with a fresh cup of coffee. The friendly folk at Flat Caps Coffee have got us caffeine-lovers sorted with their three-month subscription. The package includes a carefully-selected 250g bag of single origin coffee delivered to your door with a range of brewing tips and additional advice available on their website. Your lockdown Zoom meetings just got a whole lot better!
PET LAMB PATISSERIE
Keep your sweet tooth satisfied! The Grainger Market-based duo at Pet Lamb Patisserie are still providing us Geordies with their regular brownie boxes to be ordered online during lockdown - thank goodness! It’s safe to say we’re obsessed. Email: [email protected] to order your treats, perfect for someone
you love, or just a bit of weekend indulgence!
COSTA, MARKET STREET
Oh-my-Costa! If you're in the area, pop in for a take-out hot latte from the coffee experts at this high street favourite. As much as we’d love to sit in, people-watch and admire the stunning city views, a hearty hot drink and chocolate tiffin to-go will most certainly do for now!
LES PETITS CHOUX
Coffee, cake and everything in between. Our pals at Les Petits Choux are open for business and we couldn’t be any more excited about it. Our dreams of their iconic salted caramel éclairs are coming true! The family-run patisserie located on Leazes Park Road is offering quality coffees and sweet treats for takeaway, Monday to Saturday, 10am- 2pm. Pop in or call 0191 222 0349 to pre-order.
