When it comes to a pick me up, cake is definitely up there in my top three. Include one of your best friends for a catch up and you have the perfect recipe for a student evening on a budget for an update on life and some delicious food.




When Hafzah told me about Fazal’s Cafe, I was intrigued and wanted to try everything which she described, the food sounded delicious and the cake was described as the best ever in Newcastle so it wasn’t long before I got to give it a whirl.




Fazal’s Cafe is situated on Westgate Road, Newcastle Upon Tyne. The waiters are so friendly and welcoming making you feel right at home from the moment you step foot into the cafe. They provided us with free water after being shown our seats and speedy service after ordering our food and drinks.


I quickly learnt that the portions are just enough for a small starter and pudding rather than filling myself up with a main meal. I usually go for the Chicken Pakora that is served on a bed of fresh lettuce or the Potato Skins with Cheese which also tastes super delicious. They have some amazing mains that I have been eyeing up every time I have been but I always want to have room for the delicious selection of puddings which they have to offer.


They have a wide range of cakes, cheesecakes and ice creams that are all delicious. I went for a Creme Egg cheesecake with Cookie Dough ice cream which tasted divine. Just talking about it now makes my mouth water and leaves me craving more. I have also tried the Ferrero Rocher cake which was moist and not too overpowering even though it was like chocolate cake heaven. It even includes a full Ferrero Rocher!

Since trying Fazal’s, we haven’t been able to stop going. It’s actually become a bit of a weekly trip to eat our body weight in cake while catching up with the going ons in our lives. The best thing is that the prices are fantastic for students or those on a budget especially for the portion sizes that you get. I don’t think I could recommend it enough!

Have you been to any nice cafe’s lately?
