“Having opened for Easter time, and already enjoying very favorable reactions up and down Main Street, the Savoy Cafe is a contemporary twist on the cafe of the same name that originally fed and watered Newcastle’s residents going back as far as the 1930’s.
New proprietors Paddy & Eileen Mallon decided to revive the Savoy Cafe name, and have opened up a modern, fresh cafe on the site adjacent to where the first cafe existed, over 80 years ago.
Now busy shoppers can choose from the mouthwatering array of prepared-to-order sandwiches and hot lunch options, or if they just want a quick tea or coffee, served with scrummy homemade tray-bakes or scone.
The Savoy breakfast menu, server from 9am to midday, has all tastes catered for, from the full fry through to a deliciously light toasted teacake, topped with cinnamon bananas and Greek yogurt.
The lunch dishes available continue the trend of great, tasty variety, with a selection of freshly made soups and sandwiches on sale, boasting tempting and unusual fillings, such as Kaffir lime and lemongrass chicken with smoked paprika mayonnaise, or Brie with spinach, red onion and sun-dried tomatoes.
A new facet the Savoy Cafe will be offering is late night closing on Monday, where food and drink is served through until 10pm, and accompanies a regular new musical spot, where local artists will be gathering for a “Beat the Monday blue’s” acoustic session to entertain those still out and about.
A Free WiFi service is fully available to all customers, so you can enjoy browsing freely whilst sipping on one of the huge range of delicious Fairtrade teas and coffees, or fresh smoothies that are on offer.
With a comprehensive takeaway and sandwich order service in place as well, the Savoy Cafe is a great new addition to the Main Street, offering both fresh, tasty, homemade hot and cold food (using organic, locally sourced ingredients where possible) for breakfast and lunch, as well as a relaxing haven for a quick coffee and a catch up with friends. Give them a try – you won’t regret it!”
