Recognise this place? I didn’t until I stumbled across the hidden cafe whilst roaming the area and I’m telling you now; you’ll want to venture to Wickham
to check it out!
The building it lies within is part cafe (Coffee & Keys) and part property development company (Thirdi Group). The unlikely partnership works wonders in the newly developed area of Wickham, being situated just behind the Interchange, travelers have only to walk a short distance for a delicious cup of coffee and even check out the designs of some stunning apartment suites.
Operated by hospitality aficionado, Jules Thomas, Coffee & Keys' focus is on good, easy food, coffee, and service, but with one hell of an interior
The exposed steel beams, the rounded espresso bar, low hanging greenery, and the light, bright and airy space all add to the stunning atmosphere in the building.
With coffee from Lil P Coffee Bean, and a rotating seasonal menu, Jules’ passion for good food and coffee shines through.
The West End is certainly where it’s at with this little gem of a spot right in the heart of Wickham territory. With the Interchange just around the corner and an emerging creative and hospitality scene with the likes of House of Lita, Flotilla and Dark Horse Espresso hanging around the Wickham area too.
On one of the walls, visitors can find a cycle map, perfect for planning an explore around Newcastle. With certain locations distance stamped, you can figure out whether it’s worth pedaling to or not!
Healthy bowls, smoothies, wraps, and yummy treats are just some of what you can expect to see on Coffee & Keys' menu. Check out how yummy they look!
