North East Breakfast Boxes & Local Coffee To Brighten Your Weekend
Weekend deliveries have been the highlight of Locky D 3 for me, something to look forward to at the end of the week. As well as all the amazing treats and cakes I was seeing on my instagram feed (I shared some of the ones that caught my eye here), cafes and bakeries have started to put together breakfast boxes and takeaway brunch now too. I am all for this idea, you can’t beat a good weekend brunch and I’m really missing the bottomless versions of the past. These are the next best thing for now. I also got myself a new cafetière and, on 14th January I asked instagram for recommendations on the best local coffee. Ive combined the two here for this post on where to get North East breakfast boxes and local coffee.
Batch Bakery, Jesmond
This is the breakfast box I saw first, and immediately ordered one for the end of January so I could do it justice. They’re £20 and included you will get two flavoured croissants of your choice, two Danish pastries of your choice, two pots of yoghurt with fruit compote, granola and extra fruit. I LOVED it, the pastries were fresh and huge! Completely worth the money and as we couldn’t finish it all in one go we had leftovers for a couple of days afterwards. One of the best value for money breakfast boxes I’ve found.
To order you just have to message Batch Bakery on Instagram
Just this week Horticulture have launched their Horti at Home Brunch to go. One of my favourite spots in town for brunch and a Bloody Mary usually, I will definitely be trying this at some point soon. It’s available on Saturdays and you have to pre order, but the menu is so good with things like chorizo hash, the Muckle breakfast, french toast and there’s a vegan option on there too.
Pre order your brunch on the Horticulture website here.
Kith & Kin, Whitley Bay
I’ve long declared this place the best for brunch at the coast, (read more here) but while we can’t sit in you can still enjoy their amazing and diverse menu via takeaway. What I love about Kith & Kin is they’re constantly creating new dishes, and I’m desperate to try their newest French toast – apple Crumble sourdough French Toast with caramelised apples, brown butter cream cheese frosting, pecan crumble & blueberries. How unreal does that sound.
Alongside this they have their famous Shakshuka, and many other options. For Saturday takeaway you have to make sure you pre order as they don’t accept walk ins over the weekend.
Find the full menu and ordering details online here.
Flamingo Bar & Cafe, Seaham
Being based in Seaham I’ve not yet managed to try these, but they’re doing great things with breakfast takeaways. Bagel buns, smoothie bowls, clean eating meal plans, eggs all ways and more.
For the full menu and information visit their website here.
The Butterfly Cabinet, Heaton
There is always a queue outside of this place, and at the moment you can order their extensive breakfast menu directly to collect, or for delivery via deliveroo. I’m a big fan of their milkshakes and the full English if you’ve had a drink the night before.
Visit the website here.
On Saturdays and Sundays Allards are open for more than just takeaway tapas food, you can also pick up a bacon or sausage sandwich and a coffee if you’re passing and walking around the coast.
Breakfast butties like bacon and sausage are on the takeaway menu from Arlo, but they also have a few other dishes like a breakfast chorizo taco, avocado smash, and a halloumi taco.
Visit the menu here.
Pablo EggsGoBao, Whitley Bay
I’ve never tried these guys because I’m not a fan of bao buns, but I know a lot of people are and they rave about the breakfast buns. Bao buns filled with melted cheese, hash brown, sausage patty and sauce. They do sound pretty good.
Visit the website to order here.
I’m sure there are a lot more places offering breakfast boxes or takeaway, as well as local bakeries serving up fresh pastries but these are just some of the ones I’ve come across.
Local Coffee To Go With Your Breakfast Box
A few weeks ago when I bought my new cafetière and the fresh coffee we had ran out, I asked on instagram for local coffee supplier recommendations and got quite a lot of replies or messages. Take a look on this post:
I’d definitely recommend avoiding the instant and going for proper coffee to go alongside your breakfast boxes and takeaways, it’s just much nicer and drinking it at a weekend helps distinguish the days of the week at the moment. What a treat…
Here’s some of the most popular recommendations I got for local coffee, so far I’ve only tried the Tynemouth one as it’s local so I could pick one up when I walked past a few cafes that sell it, but I’m ordering the Ouseburn one next as I got a lot of messages about it.
Relish Whitley Bay – this one also seems popular.
This weekend I’m going Yorkshire with my breakfast, as I’ve got some Taylors coffee that needs finishing, and a Betty’s order arriving as I ran out of teabags. I threw in a box of fat rascals to my online order as they’re just so delicious I couldn’t resist.
What’s on the menu for you this weekend? Hopefully you now have some breakfast box inspiration until we can get back to eating at places properly. Check out my 28 places to get breakfast in Newcastle post so you’re ready when the time comes.
