I was asked last month by Millennium Hotels to recommend my hidden foodie gem in Newcastle for a post on their website promoting the Toon. When visiting a new city there’s no one better to point you in the direction of good grub than a local! Myself, along with some other local bloggers, put forward one suggestion each of places that even Geordies may not even have heard of.
Some of my favourite places to eat in Newcastle were featured such as La Petite Creperie, Pizza by the Slice and The Great British Cupcakery. I chose Pani’s Cafe, which has graced the pages of this blog on a number of occasions. See a more comprehensive post here.
Opened in 1995 by two Sardinian brothers down the cobbled High Bridge side street, the cafe has gone from strength to strength over the years. I have been frequenting this eatery for around 19 years because of their warm friendly welcome and fantastic Strawberry Cheesecake. My son thinks the Lasagna is the best he’s ever tasted, and make sure you order some bread on the side to ‘mop up’ the leftovers. With the clatter of the coffee machine and Italian chatter you could almost be in Rome!
Newcastle has many hotels to chose from if you’re visiting from outside the area. The Copthorne Hotel, which is located on the picturesque Quayside, is a great base for sightseeing and shopping in the city centre.
