Newcastle is renowned for being one of the best nights on the town, but what about the morning after? Nothing beats a hangover like a good catch up brunch to catch up on the night’s antics and to fill up with good food, so check out our roundup of the top 5 brunch stops in Newcastle to cure you of that banging headache!


Situated next to West Jesmond metro station, Arlo is a student favourite. Breakfast runs from 08:30 until 12:00 6 days a week, and 09:00 until 13:00 on a Sunday - perfect for the lazier amongst you who like a lie in after a night out! They provide a huge menu, with everything from toast (for those who can’t handle much to eat after a night out) to huge cooked breakfasts, with waffles and stotties in between. We recommend the Sausage Stottie!

Quay Ingredient

Located in Newcastle’s idyllic Quayside, Quay Ingredient has a slightly smaller brunch menu, but that makes it no less delicious! Serving until 11:30am throughout the week and all day on weekends and bank holidays, they offer the necessary traditional Full English, as well as cinnamon pancakes, eggs in anyway you can think of, and heavenly fresh Danish pastries, all for a very reasonable price. For those who like to walk off a hangover, Quay Ingredient also boasts an ideal location to get some fresh air after with a brisk stroll along the gorgeous Quayside to help you feel fresh again!

Butterfly Cabinet

A little out of the way of the centre, Butterfly Cabinet is tucked away on Heaton Road, but is always worth a brunch visit if you can drag yourself there. Open 9-5, Monday to Saturday and 10-4 for those needing a Sunday morning pick-me-up, Butterfly Cabinet boasts an impressive breakfast menu, served all day for those who don’t like to move too quickly after a night out. If you are the kind of person who needs a huge plate of greasy food to sober back up, then “the business” (or “the veggie business”) is for you! If not, make your own fry up as small or large as you like, or help yourself to eggs, pancakes, French toast or granola. The menu includes a full range of vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options so there really is something for everyone!

Hidden away behind Grainger Market, Olive and Bean is located in the centre of the city, perfect for anyone just staying for the night! Whilst being slightly more on the pricy side in comparison to the others, Olive and Bean offer a varied menu, from “the Business Full English” to every variation of toast you could dream of, and waffles, and porridge or granola for those who need a slightly lighter breakfast. The menu also encompasses vegetarian and vegan needs with ease, as well as gluten intolerances!

To make hangovers that bit more bearable, the café also boasts an impressive tea selection (18 blends!) and divine coffee choices for those who need a caffeine boost to get the weekend rolling again. Their breakfast and lunch menus have recently been changed to be more inclusive for vegetarians and vegans, and there is discussion of the snack menu expanding even further to cater for all diets, so there will definitely be something for everyone here!
