One of the best lattes to be found. I had coffee here many times, and cake once. Cake was lovely. Would be great if there was more outdoor seating, as I usually have my dog with me.

Working in Newcastle, breakfast at Good Brother ( close to the Novotel). Always good coffee, went for the granola rather than my traditional avocado toast. Delicious with fresh fruit. Good and friendly service too.

Intriguing little place. Nice to enter & with a trendy decor & vibe. Staff cool and friendly. Coffee is excellent, and food pretty good too. My vegetarian bruschetta was wholesome, hearty & real. All in all pretty good, and clearly an established institution with the...More
