Dates a blur

Went here while staying in hospital. I was recovering so couldn't go on the walk, however I was given the choice so I sat on my own. I think I have been here twice. Once I had the soup it was gorgeous with a good view. Good outdoor area too but seats were not that sturdy. I have a lovely keyring I treasure. Bought presents here. Can't remember if I tried the latte. Good trip but can't remember exactly everyone that was there!!

Busker Jam

Robert S,
Called in to this friendly and lively community based cafe. It just so happened that there was a free entry music night on. Local musicians jammin and performing. Good event. Runs once a months.

Newbiggin Maritime Centre replied: Thank you Robert S, for your comment. So pleased you enjoyed our Buskers Night, we enjoy hosting local musicians playing their fabulous music. You must also pop in on a Saturday morning as we have the brilliant group 'Loose Change' entertaining our visitors in the cafe.

Very good cafe

It was very good cafe and they do have lovely sandwiches and it was a very good value for it. It was beautiful day and the sun shining in felt like spring. It was good to have a rest there after a long walk. Thank you to the staff.

Newbiggin Maritime Centre replied: Thank you amanda227 for your kind comments. We are so lucky having a cafe with such spectacular views. It is certainly an oasis after a long walk. Sure we will have an increase in walkers soon, when the U.K. Coastal Path is opened, South Bents, through Newbiggin by the Sea to Amble next year.

Good cafe

Clean and presentable with a reasonable selection of salads and cooked food. Like their bacon sandwiches. The cakes and scones are always delicious. Lovely setting looking over the bay. Car park behind and a nice flat walk around the bay.

Lovely brew with a view!

Beautiful location, amazing scones! And cute little gift shop! Have visited here a good few times and can't wait to go back!
