Read Ernest's Covid-19 update on their website here:

The philosophy at Ernest is simple - great food, great drink and great company.

Quality and simplicity come together in this unpretentious, fuss-free cafe in Newcastle's creative district, the Ouseburn Valley. Serving light bites, sandwiches and proper comfort food, expect fresh, seasonal dishes homemade from locally sourced produce. The quirky café is big on breakfast, with brunch served around the clock and their tasty flatbreads are somewhat of an institution. Combine dinner with a spot of dancing at one of the venue’s many events; Tuesday is tango night, providing options for beginners and intermediates alike or enjoy a cocktail at one of their open deck nights.

If you're just stopping by for a drink, you can enjoy coffee from the Ouseburn Coffee Company or beer from Tyne Bank Brewery, all served with a friendly smile. If you’re looking for somewhere dog friendly, it’s also great choice; both man and dog will be given a warm welcome.
