UK Coffee consumption, in particular, has boomed over recent years and the number of coffee shops throughout the country has increased dramatically to keep up with demand.

It's safe to say that 'cafe culture' in the UK has developed rapidly and is here to stay, and in Newcastle, we have some of the best cafes in the country.
