Where To Get Pancakes In Newcastle & North Tyneside Coast

Pancake Day is one of my favourite foodie days of the year, but if you don’t enjoy making them yourself then there are plenty of places in the North East where you can get your fix. And I don’t just mean for Pancake Day. These fabulous cafes and restaurants are serving up delicious pancakes with all sorts of toppings year round. So here’s my list of where to get pancakes in Newcastle. This covers Newcastle, Jesmond, Heaton and the North Tyneside coast too.

Where To Get Pancakes In Newcastle

For once I won’t waffle on (no pun intended), so this really is just a list of where to get them and some of their specialities. It includes sweet and savoury options of pancakes in Newcastle and at the coast. Enjoy!


The Newcastle branch of the popular dessert parlour Creams can be found on Grainger Street, and they have a big selection of crepe and American style pancakes available including nutella, banoffee, Oreo, red velvet, Ferrero Roche, milk and white chocolate and maple.

See the full Creams pancake menu here.

Quay Ingredient

I told some of my friends from outside of Newcastle to go here when they were staying in town and they said it was the best place they’ve ever been for breakfast. As the name suggests, find them on the Quayside and be prepared to queue because they’re so popular. They have cinnamon pancakes on the menu all the time, and release specific pancake day menus too. Keep an eye on their Instagram here for this years.

The Dispensary

The Dispensary coffee shop in Newcastle has an unbelievable selection of pancake flavours, and they often release a special menu for Pancake Day, including toffee crisp, sweet apple, custard cream, peanut butter and jelly and jam roly poly in past years.

Downstairs at the bottom end of Eldon Square, sits Crepeaffaire, the crepe and pancake spot that serves nothing else, all day every day. Sweet and savoury they’re pancake pros and one of the busiest places to get pancakes in Newcastle. They also do takeaway and delivery to some areas. See them on Instagram here.
