Your guide to Newcastle's best brekkie street

Breakfast in Newy is all about heading to Darby Street, meeting up with some friends and enjoying a coffee and delicious brekkie. Followed by some shopping, the markets or a swim at Bar Beach.

There are so many cafes to pick from, so we’ve put together a list of our fave Darby Street breakfast haunts:

At The Autumn Rooms we can’t go past the Black Fox Crumpets with lavender honey, fresh berries, mascarpone and french butter. They are so delicate, fresh and simply melt in your mouth. And you can enjoy it with a glass of champagne too, why not!

Whilst across the road at Core Espresso, the breakfasts look more like art than food! They’re almost too good to eat. We love their health bowl with soft poached eggs, quinoa, avocado, seed mix, kale, spinach, halloumi, lemon and garlic oil. Or their simple, poached eggs with roasted beetroot and za’atar relish, Persian fetta, dukkah seed mix and sourdough.

Baba Yaga on Darby is absolutely bursting with energy thanks to owners Oscar & Senem. Their lust for life is bloody infectious, you’ll leave not only buzzing on the caffeine but high on the love oozing out of this joint.

Up the southern end of Darby Street towards Bar Beach you’ll find Hubro, run by brothers Duncan and Tim. Here you’ll find a fresh and healthy menu featuring Chia Pudding, Avo on Sourdough and a new range of smoothies.

You can't go wrong when ordering anything from the Three Monkeys menu, the Moroccan Eggs and Ricotta Pancakes are to die for, as are their insanely long list of Smoothies

For the sweet tooths out there you must try Coco Monde’s Nutella French Toast or Waffles with banana, strawberries, maple syrup and vanilla icecream. There’s also the classic Goldbergs' Buttermilk Pancake Stack or WIA Store’s legendary Acai Bowls. There’s just too many choices.

Bring on the weekend!
