NEWCASTLE'S THREE HIDDEN GEMS

Dog and Scone Cafe

22 Pudding Chare,
Newcastle,
NE1 1UE

Opening Hours:
Tuesday to Friday - 11am - 7pm
Saturday and Sunday - 10am - 7pm

The Dog and Scone cafe, tucked away in the heart of Newcastle, is truly a blissful place. At £5.20 per hour, per person, which also includes a hot or cold drink, on Tuesday’s to Friday’s, is money well spent. The cafe itself is decorated beautifully has a relaxing atmosphere as soon as you walk in the door and you are quickly greeted by some lovely and friendly dogs. There are areas where you can play with the dogs and their toys, but the staff do also make an effort to ‘rotate’ any lap dogs around the tables, so you do get cuddles with a lot of dogs. The dogs are very relaxed, but they are quite happy to jump off your laps and go and play. It’s nice, as you don’t feel like they are forced to sit on your laps. The staff are also extremely friendly and the selection of hot and cold drinks included in your ‘entry’ fee are also fantastic. The cafe does also serve food. You can book your visit online up to 30 days in advance; you pay a £1.20 deposit online and pay £4, along with any extra drinks or food if you’ve bought them, at the end of your time in the cafe. If you want to change or cancel your booking you can do this up to 24 hours before.

Here are some points to read before you making your booking, taken from the Dog and Scone website (https://dogandscone.com). Also, do follow them on Instagram @dogandscone, to see some seriously cute snaps of the dogs!

If you love cupcakes and sweet treats this boutique bakehouse and parlour is the place for you. It is the perfect place to stop on the way down to the Quayside, tucked down a side street by the Tyne Bridge. Their malteaser cupcakes are to die for! From flower walls to cherry blossom, it is decorated so beautifully. It is open daily, also serving sandwiches, teas and coffees; afternoon tea is also available to book. The staff are very friendly; I couldn't recommend the place enough.
