Soya milk chai is amazing! Great food. A lovely, chilled place to come and relax with friends. Unfortunately, there is a wide range of uncomfortable seating.

Pros: Soya chai, Yummy vegan food, Beautiful teapots
Cons: Uncomfortable chairs, Not wheelchair accessible, Sometimes eerily quiet

Wide range of teas. My lemongrass & ginger was served in a glass, leaf-straining pot. Nice selection of baked treats, some vegan. Pumpkin soup (vegan) was available. Wraps and "Chinese dhal," which was served with brown rice and small green salad. Was it something I ate earlier, or was it the dal? I was very ill immediately after eating half the bowl of dal.
There is only one small eat-at table; otherwise, bamboo furniture and low tables.

Pros: lots of teas, calm setting
Cons: small selection

At last somewhere vegetarian to go in central Newcastle after the demise of Supernatural Cafe a few years ago and more recently the decision to sell meat at Bob Trollops vegetarian pub. Fantastic location overlooking Percy Street and near the main shopping area of the city. Very well sign posted outside and accessed by stairs to a peaceful and calm setting with plenty of comfortable seating including a raised cushioned area where you can relax in true oriental fashion. Essentially a tea house that also serves a decent selection of vegetarian and vegan snacks such as hummus and spinach and guacamole and salsa wraps, home-made burgers, soups, cakes and small sweet and savoury bites. There appears to be 1 soup, 6 types of wrap and 3 mains available every day. The range of teas is pretty phenomenal including some very rare examples that are quite expensive. Definitely worth a go for a hot drink and snack if you happen to be in 'Toon' as it is called locally.

Pros: range of teas, calm and relaxed
Cons: up 2 flights of stairs, bit pricey
