Coffee Shops On Tynemouth Beach

Tynemouth Longsands is one of the best beaches for everything – walking the dog (at the North end in summer), surfing, family days out etc. Whichever end you’re joining the beach there’s choices to grab a coffee.


Opens daily 8:30am

Crusoes is right on the beach and has been serving up food and drinks for over 20 years. You can sit in the restaurant, out on the terrace which is dog friendly (although this end of the beach isn’t between May – September) and has heaters, on one of the deck chairs on the sand, or you can grab a takeaway from the hatch. They do everything you’d want for the seaside – coffee, ice cream, fish and chips and bacon sandwiches, but they’re famous for their huge homemade muffins.

The View

Opens daily 9am

The View is at the other end of Tynemouth beach, and sits higher up with, as the name suggests, fabulous views out to see and of Tynemouth priory. They have a dog friendly terrace which also has beach huts with heaters, and you can get takeaway here too. They say the cappuccinos here are pretty good.

Tynemouth Surf Cafe

Open daily from 8am

Rather than at either end of the beach you’ll find Tynemouth Surf Cafe in the middle, right at the top overlooking the whole beach. They serve Tynemouth Coffee, and in winter some epic hot chocolates. Get yours and either sit in, or take it down the path to the beach. This is a good way in for dog owners if you’re parked along the top, as the path takes you down right in the middle which is where the dog friendly area starts.

A very popular spot right on Front Street is Allards, with indoor seating in the restaurant that you can book, the dog friendly bar area which is walk-in only, and the outside seating area.

Regular Jos

8:30am midweek and 9am weekends

Regular Jos began as a coffee truck in Tynemouth market every weekend, but they very recently opened up an actual coffee shop. It may be tiny but it’s got a lot of character, with sheltered outside seating, and limited bench seating inside. The coffee is very good, and you can enjoy it either sitting in where all areas are dog friendly, or take it away. They still run their van at Tynemouth market on Saturdays and Sundays too.
