The iconic North East eatery, Café Royal, reopened last month after an extensive refurbishment which included an addition of a refreshed, modern interior and a new menu.
The café, which is based in the heart of Newcastle, is most famous for serving exceptional cakes, scones, patisseries and fresh savoury dishes that focus on seasonal and locally-sourced ingredients, all of which are expertly developed and created by Café Royal’s Head Chef, Gavin Groombridge and his team of professional kitchen staff.
Through working closely with North East based interior designer Abercrombie, the restaurant interior now features warm, natural hues and textures, as well as solid wood tables to help create a relaxing and open dining space.
“We couldn’t be more delighted with the developments at Café Royal and we’ve loved welcoming our customers back to experience our new look and menu. The refurbishment was a milestone moment for our team at Café Royal, who worked exceptionally hard whilst we were closed to bring our customers an even better, brighter and tastier offering.
“Drawing inspiration from home and abroad, Café Royal’s new breakfast, lunch and drinks menus combine different ingredients, themes and flavours to create an outstanding variety of dishes which I hope will suit all tastes.”
Alongside Café Royal’s in-house artisan bakery which produces fresh bread, pastry and cakes daily, the all-new breakfast menu now features dishes such as ‘Super Green Eggs Benedict’ and ‘Avocado, Sriracha Chilli and Lime Crostini.’ The lunch menu offers meals such as ‘Vietnamese Chilli Ginger Marinated Steak Sandwich’ and a new vegan dish, the ‘BBQ Jackfruit ‘Pulled Pork.’ Between 12 pm and 2:30 pm every Monday – Friday, there is also an express lunch menu available for guests on a tight schedule.
In addition to Café Royal’s renowned freshly-brewed coffee, there are super juices and smoothies on offer featuring flavour combinations such as ‘Beetroot, Apple, Carrot and Lemon’ and ‘Hemp Seed, Turmeric and Orange.’
The café, which is based over two floors, is open from 8 am – 6 pm Monday through to Saturday, with food served from 8:30 am – 4:30 pm every day. On Sunday, Café Royal is open from 10 am – 4 pm.
