Newcastle used to be blue collar to its muddy boots, but these days even the bikers are renaissance men. The two worlds collide wonderfully at this workshop café rolling out a locally-roasted Wickham Blend beans from a funky warehouse doubling as a motorcycle showroom. The menu riding shotgun is studded with high-rev recipes – the burger is a stand-out – and, at the behest of chef Jane Mears, uses all-organic fare, with cakes and pastries also homemade. There’s a high tea every second Saturday, and Sunday long lunch is popular with the cool set who fuel-up on beers and DJs.
