Italians have a reputation for their excellent food and quality coffee, as well as wines and lagers. It's a reputation well-deserved, built upon decades of creating some of the world's favourite delicacies and timeless flavours, inspired by the gorgeous fresh produce and the bright Mediterranean sun. Mio's brings the flavours and style of Italy to the streets of South Shields, importing the best ingredients and coffee we can find for a truly tempting menu of food and drinks, whether it be from our day time menu with all of your coffee shop favourites or our brand new evening menu, filled with tapas, hanging kebabs and flatbreads. Thanks to our relaxed atmosphere and welcoming décor, our coffee bar is a popular choice for anyone who wants to take time out and enjoy a moment of Mediterranean hospitality.

About us

Since 2012 we've been providing high-quality food and coffee to the community in South Shields. We're a small, independent business with a focus on providing top-range refreshments a cut above the fare you'll find in standard chain coffee shops. Our friendly team of staff are passionate about great food and coffee done right; that's why we work hard to prepare delicious lunches, snacks and even afternoon tea using quality ingredients, often sourced from respected traders in Italy. It's an Italian tradition to take time out from the day-to-day hustle and bustle to enjoy a rich, nutty coffee and a bite of something special; our ambition is to bring this tradition to South Shields.

The Italians believe that good food makes a good mood. We share this passion for fantastic cooking and quality coffee, creating a menu with something for everyone, which offers delicious lunch options and flavourful snacks made with quality ingredients. Whether you're getting together with friends, going to a lunchtime business meeting or treating someone special to a luxury afternoon tea, Mio's in South Shields is the perfect place to sit, relax and refuel with something tasty!
