Delicious Cake. Strong Coffee. Good Friends. Some of the things that make me so very happy… And I had the pleasure of enjoying all 3 of them last Saturday at Cake Stories, the cutest, cosiest little cafe in Newcastle! Me and my two girlfriends went there for a long catch up and we had an amazing afternoon!
Located in Jesmond, one of my favourite areas in Newcastle, the cafe is easily accessible as it’s only a 3 minutes walk from West Jesmond metro station. Brentwood Avenue is a beautiful street with a nice selection of restaurants and boutique shops. The cafe’s twinkling fairy lights invite you in, especially on a cold day like last Saturday.
As soon as we walked in, we were impressed by the beautiful decoration that created a warm, cosy and relaxing atmosphere. Everything was so well-thought. with attention to detail and heaps of good taste.
Once we settled in it was time for a very difficult task… Choosing our cake! The selection was so mouth-wateringly satisfying with so many delicious goods on display for every taste but my heart was set on the Salted Caramel Popcorn cake. Because I love salted caramel. And popcorn. And cake, clearly! My friends went for the Chocolate Peanut Butter and the Strawberry and Vanilla cake.
Well I think I’ve never been so pleased with my decision in my whole life! My cake was so full of flavour and unlike many cakes that look good but then taste only of sugar, this one was a true delight for my taste buds.
My coffee was nice and strong too! Their selection of teas is also impressive so I am looking forward to trying them next time I am there.
What makes a place extra special for me is the quality of service. And the staff at Cake Stories excelled in that as well. Cheerful and polite, they made us feel comfortable and welcome 🙂
I am so pleased to have discovered this beautiful Coffee House! I totally recommend it and I will be going back for sure!
