Delicious Decadence

I'm sure you all remember me waffling away last month about my love for Living Social (if not, shame on you, where have you been?!).

Being a bit of a Living Social addict, my deal vouchers have started to stack up so on Saturday I thought it was about time I have a little look through what I have stashed away and make a plan.

With the sun making a bit of an appearance it seemed like the perfect day for a stroll to Delicious Decadence, a gorgeous little coffee shop and bakery in Newcastle's trendy suburb, Jesmond.  


The beauty of Living Social is getting to try places you've never heard of or been before and I'm so happy that we've now discovered such a lovely little place for treats.  

The shop only has 4 or 5 tables so is comfortably cosy and looks so cute with its tea and cake inspired mottos displayed on the walls.




Our deal gave us a brunch fit for foodies.  We both had a plate of pancakes served with warm maple syrup and streaky bacon.  It was absolutely delicious, I just wish every day could be started with such an indulgent breakfast.


I was pretty surprised to hear that it was the first time Simon had ever tried pancakes served the traditional American way, it makes me look forward to the day when we can finally visit America together.   Needless to say he wolfed his down and is now a bit of a fan. 


Despite being pretty full there was a second load of food to come as part of our deal with a toasted teacake each served with butter and jam.  I love nothing more than spreading a thick layer of butter on a hot teacake so I was very much in my element. 


It smelt and tasted absolutely amazing, I just wish I could have stopped myself eating it so quickly because I really wanted the moment to last.


Whilst there we had a good look at the menu which is full of yummy breakfast treats, freshly made sandwiches and light bites.  Of course no visit to somewhere so cute would be complete without the obligatory perusal of the cake display and it did not disappoint.   There was a great selection of homemade cakes and it absolutely pained me walking away without trying any of them.  We will most definitely be back - I need cake!
 
As well as delivering up beautiful food in a cute shop, Delicious Decadence also do catering, make wedding cakes and, the thing I'm most excited about, they also put on Cupcake Parties, teaching you how to make and decorate cupcakes.  I've been wanting to learn how to bake for ages so now I just need to find a group of people wanting to play with me.


Delicious Decadence can be found on Newlands Road in Jesmond, close to Ilford Road Metro Station .. I suggest you get yourselves there as soon as possible!

  1. You are certainly getting great use out of your living social. Good on you means you get to try new places. The breakfast looks yummy and I am sure that won't be the last time Simon has bacon, pancakes and maple syrup Lucyx

    1. I'll be SO jealous! We were saying if we lived in Jesmond we'd probably be there all the time (or I'd be sending Simon there to bring me back food!) :p
