Breakfast@Quay Ingredient, Newcastle

Quay Ingredient is a small, independently run coffee house tucked underneath the Tyne Bridge near the picturesque Quayside area of Newcastle. We’ve heard it is one of the best places in Newcastle for breakfast – so we are here to find out if it is.

One of the regional specialities is the Craster kipper and this seems like a good time to have one. My enormous kipper comes with two beautifully poached eggs, each lightly dusted with black pepper and with plenty of toast. Rock goes for another speciality of the North-East, the stottie. Her breakfast stottie is buttered and filled with bacon, to which she adds ketchup. She loves it.  We both have an excellent coffee – they use Gama Espresso from Matthew Algie.


The place is packed but the service is friendly and efficient. The food is all high quality and freshly cooked. What a great start to the day!

Wade and Rock are a UK based couple who love good food and wildlife and love travelling to find it. Wade does most, but not all, of the writing and the photography. Rock shares the eating experience and tells Wade when planned posts fall short on sense or style or taste. In the opinion of Wade (and many of our friends) she is also a fabulous baker. WadeandRockandFood mainly consists of reviews of restaurants and pubs we have recently visited. WadeandRockandWildlife and WadeandRockandPlaces are mostly photoblogs.
