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.

Please note this service must be booked at least one day advance. Afternoon Tea includes tea and coffee should wish to change this to an alcoholic beverage there will be an added charge.

Italian Produce

We believe that Italy is the heart of so much fantastic cuisine and amazing ingredients. That's why we import so much of our produce directly from Italy, to ensure only the best quality. From our coffee to our cakes, our biscuits to our olive oil, we think Italian is the only way to go and we get it delivered regularly for fresh, tasty Mediterranean flavour. It's what gives our coffee it's tell-tale nuttiness and our snacks their unique deliciousness.
