In December my workplace moved our office to Newcastle City Centre (Civic Centre). As everyone knows Newcastle’s city centre is full of places to eat and I won’t lie I’m a sucker for eating at restaurants and cafes. With this I thought I would list my top 3 places to eat on my lunch each restaurant/cafe has it own reasons for being on this list and I’ll explain them along the way.

Meet and Treat has only recently been put on my radar. If you follow the #Neblogger hashtag on twitter and Instagram then I’m sure you would have seen lots of photos of this place including it’s incredible floor (blogger heaven). Meet and treat is at the end of China Town and is for me is somewhere that is just within walking distance from my office which makes it great if you are looking to get away from all the shopper. The thing I love most about Meet and Treat is that the atmosphere is calm and the staff are lovely.
I’ve been 3 times now and every time I’ve tried something different. I’ve tried the the Deep Fried Vegetable Dumplings Japanese Style, Fish Ball Noodles, Malaysian Style King Prawn Noodles and finally the Teriyaki Chicken Bao.
Tyneside Cinema Cafe has always been one of my favourite places to go and relax. When I was at college and I got sick of sitting in the library tyneside cinema cafe was my place to go. With free wifi and sometimes a film on in the cafe I found it was my go to place to get away from the stress and that hasn’t changed since moving into my current job that sometimes can be stressful.
With the tyneside cinema cafe being located on pilgrim Street which is about 5 minutes work from my office. It’s one of them places I go when I might not actually have that much time but I don’t want to be stuck in the office.
My favourite thing to have at the tyneside cinema cafe is normally the soup of the day or the Tyneside Hot Dog and Chips. The service is normally quite quick which is essential when you want something quick but I’ve also used tyneside for meetings and it can be quite quiet through the day.
You can check out the menu for Tyneside Cinema Cafe here it has the brunch menu and the evening menu just incase you fancy going after work.
The Fat Hippo at the moment is definitely a highlight of my week, so every Thursday around 12noon Fat Hippo set up their pop up Burger Bar at The Quad within the ground of Northumbria University. I remember seeing this on my twitter feed and jumping around the office in excitement. The Fat Hippo has always been one of my favourite places for food but I love them more when they are at pop u including Wylam or The Cumberland Arms for there Beer and Ale Festivals.
My favourite burger that is always on the menu is the The Little Hippo (I wish I had a photo to show you) which is a single 4oz patty, topped with chorizo, cheese and Fat Hippo sauce which I won’t lie is my favourite part. Another item on the menu that is a must is the signature cajun fries.
You can see when the burger bar is coming close to your workplace by checking out there events page to see where there heading next.
