Pink Lane Coffee

This weekend, my ongoing North East coffee quest brought me to an adorable spot that's caught my caffeine- and design-oriented eye more than once. I don't know what took me so long to open their inviting lil door, but thank goodness I got around to it in the end. Priding themselves on "the best coffee in Newcastle," Pink Lane is without doubt a winner on the coffee bean scene.

Aptly placed on - you guessed it - Pink Lane (number 1 to be precise), the Toon's answer to my Berlin fave Silo has got it very right indeed. A tiny hop from Central Station, this cosy caffeine haunt deftly strikes the balance between minimalist and characterful, its industrial interior a treat for aesthetic appreciatin' visitors. Pink Lane offers a neat mix of seating, from cute communal benches, to sofas, to intimate little nooks, all housed within the most welcoming of hang-outs. 

All this, of course, is before you sample their grade A coffee. Ranging from £2.20 for ya standard espresso to £2.50 for a fine flat white (my beverage of choice), the union of more than reasonable prices and a top-notch brew leaves nada to complain about. While the coffee will always be my first port of call in these kinda establishments - it is their speciality after all - the hot chocolate and tea choices looked pretty tantalising, too. For those in need of a little sustenance, they also serve up a resplendent range of savoury and sweet indulgences that'll pick you right up. 

In response to my cheeky request to take photos of the place (too photogenic not to), the affable and easy-going baristas couldn't have been sweeter, making my preliminary Pink Lane Coffee jaunt all the lovelier. No doubt it won't be the last.
