Café de Vie - Newcastle


I never go into a coffee shop and purchase a black coffee yet all I drink at home is black coffee; either I'm too lazy to make anything else at home or I feel that I miss out on speciality coffee when I go out. I also never go for a sit down drink in a chain shop (Costa, Starbucks etc.) because the business stresses me out and chances are I'm there to chill out. A great place for both of these is Café de vie on Saville Row in Newcastle; the quaint French café serves a range of speciality drinks, hot meals and snacks at reasonable prices. I first called in for a hot chocolate and it has since been awarded (by my standards) the best hot chocolate in Newcastle. I have a bit of an obsession with foam on my drinks and cannot begin to comprehend why anyone would ever ask for theirs without foam and their hot chocolate has foam! Instant 10/10! Since this discovery I have brought everyone and their granny to Café de Vie for a hot chocolate; that is until today when I got an amaretto latte-a brilliant discovery on my part. What I'm trying to say is: get yourself to Café de Vie, order an amaretto latte and hot chocolate with a muffin interlude.
