In need of a decent coffee in Newcastle? Well here's a list of Newcastle's coffee hot spots.
Beaumont Street, Hamilton
Beaumont Street Hamilton is one of Newcastle's most multicultural eat streets, with a huge variety of different cuisines to excite your taste buds. And of course, here you'll find some awesome coffee! At the Islington end of Beaumont Street, Suspension and Rolador are must-dos. At Suspension it is all about the coffee, and the coffee roasting. They roast their own beans in Redfern, Sydney and it's available for you to buy and take home with you. This grungy little café on what once was the wrong side of the tracks in Hamilton, is renowned for their smooth, strong coffee. You'll regularly drive down Beaumont Street and see the morning line up of caffeine starved locals hanging out for their morning hit.
Whilst at the south end of Beaumont Street you'll find Apothecary Kitchen and Fortunate Son, both which pour a great coffee. Apothecary is a Hamilton institution, the coffee is consistently good, they use Single Origin Roasters out of Sydney and mix it up with a different single origin each week for you to try.
Hunter Street, Newcastle
Starting in the Hunter Street Mall there is the ever popular One Penny Black. OPB pride themselves on making great coffee and their loyal following would have to agree, travelling from all around Newcastle for a drop of their caffeinated goodness. They serve a rich style of coffee, with lots of body and depth a brew that is obviously favoured by Novocastrians. Along Hunter Street there is also the Umbrian, Blue Door at Wheeler Place, the Press Book House and Papa's Bagels Bar. All of which are favourites amongst locals and office workers looking for their caffeine fix.
