Customers particularly praise the quality of the food, relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff with some of the latest comments including: ‘Best bacon butty, I’ve ever had.’ ‘Staff are so welcoming and friendly – creates a really lovely atmosphere 10/10’ and ‘Fun staff, excellent coffee and a great vibe.’

“Staff are so welcoming and friendly – creates a really lovely atmosphere 10/10.”


Cullercoats Coffee manager, Lauren Peters, said: “Being named as one of the world’s top restaurants is a huge honour and it’s all down to our amazing customers and hard-working team.

“Our ethos is to deliver the very best food and treats, sourced locally, and served in relaxed surroundings where people can feel like they are home from home. Being at the heart of the community and a key part of local people’s lives is very important to us. Clearly our customers think so too and we want to thank them from the bottom of our hearts for helping us win this award.”
