I am feeling a bit home sick at the moment so to cheer myself up I have decided to talk about my three most favourite places to eat in Whitley Bay. I used to go to any of these for catch-up coffee’s with Alice or lunch dates with family and friends. It’s the places that I believe needs talking about because the atmospheres are so warm and friendly, the food is delicious and you can potentially get a couple of good Instagrams from them as well. What more do you want?!
First up is Pulp Fiction Future Food, round the corner from where I used to live, this unique cafe is a brilliant addition to Whitley Bay offering vegetarian and vegan friendly foods that are delicious and nutritious, pressed juices, smoothies and a range of coffees. It’s rather quirky and easy recognisable amongst the various shops surrounding the cafe. Inside the atmosphere is so friendly and comfortable with a range of books that are on offer to read and disappear into. I went for a green machine smoothie which has kale, lime, apple, celery, broccoli and kiwi and the veggie breakfast which tasted AMAZING!!
I haven’t heard many people talk about Elder And Wolf but I can’t wait to go back for another one of their platters because it tasted equally as good as the veggie breakfast. Inside there is a choice to eat in the front next to the open fired kitchen or in the back where it is a bit more secluded in a woodfired lounge which has a lovely relaxing atmosphere. There is an unlimited supply of fruit flavoured water that is on the side of the bar which you can help yourself to. They offer a range of pizza, tacos and kebabs as well as having a gluten free menu. I went for the woodfired halloumi kebab which is marinated in their signature smokey paprika sauce served on a flat bread with homemade aioli sauce and a delicious salad. For pudding, they gave me a bowl of chocolate and eton mess ice cream which tasted really good too.
The last place that I would recommend is The Boatyard which is technically in Cullercoats but I couldn’t not include this place. Before moving to Shrewsbury, this was mine and Alice’s favourite place for a catch up. I have had a range of foods from their menu including pancakes, the veggie breakfast and chips. It is rather tiny inside but the atmosphere screams coastal haven for a bloggers catch up. They even cater for vegans which not many places do.
What’s your favourite places to eat in the North East? Do any of these make it on your list?
