Pink Lane Bakery
This independent bakery in the centre of Newcastle, formerly known as Sugar Down Bakery, makes delightful sourdough bread and sweet and savoury pastries. It’s one of our go-to city centre spots to swing by for a morning flat white fix.

Holmeside Coffee at Little Shop
Holmeside is probably the hippest place in all of Sunderland, based in the Sunderland Museum and Winter Gardens. While their doors there remain closed, their recent collaboration with other local independents, Little Shop co-op, means you can still get your hands on their heavenly blends and sugary doughnuts.
313 High Street West, Sunderland
This speciality coffee and brunch house serve local coffee from North Star Coffee Roasters, while their resident baker Masayo delivers fresh bakes daily including banana breads and brownies. Stop by their takeaway bar on Vicar Lane before a stroll through the market, or grab a seat kerb-side on Call Lane.

Mannion & Co
Mannion & Co, in York and Helmsley, are a couple of steps up from your average coffee shop and their hand-selected, wood-roasted blends will knock your socks off. Almost everything here is handmade, so if you fancy a pastry to go with your morning latte, we won’t blame you.
