My Lonely Planet travel guide suggested Quay Ingredient as an affordable cafe I should try out…

The place was very compact (only had around seven tables…?), but the dishes range from two to seven pounds.

I went for the Eggs Montreal with Smoked Salmon and my friend got the Breakfast Burrito

I also ordered tea called China Rose… it was supposed to have a slight taste of rose, but it just tasted like oolong tea… (yay for my “sophisticated” palettes)

Honestly, it was one of the best eggs benedict I’ve tried… the Hollandaise sauce was so rich and creamy…

I had a bite of my friend’s breakfast burrito and loved it as well

Highly highly recommend this place… if I ever go back to Newcastle, I’m definitely going again

After walking around a bit, I went to the Settle Down Cafe

This place had high reviews from TripAdvisor…

My friends and I were expecting some really great scones… but because we went really late, they only had cake available…

Come to think of it I’m not even sure if they have scones here…

I got Chai Latte with this… bread that has orange in it… (I think…)

It was a bit dry but I was famished… so I just ate it all

The cafe has great atmosphere but I would think twice about ordering the cake here… maybe go for the sandwiches and pizza…?

The chai latte sprinkled with cinnamon was delightful nonetheless, and it kept me warm (it was absolutely freezing the day I went to Newcastle…)
