Established in June 2016 by Abbie & Kenny Atkinson.

Violets is a quintessentially British neighbourhood bistro, located in the heart of the Historical Newcastle Quayside and a stones throw away from the iconic Tyne Bridge.

We serve breakfast, lunch and daily bakes throughout the day.  Dinner offers a more relaxed bistro style dining with an emphasis on natural, seasonal & sustainable produce.  

Our dishes are full of thought but most importantly full of flavour, offering the same focus of high quality cooking, wine and service as our sister restaurant House of Tides around the corner.

We look forward to welcoming you 


We only take reservations for dinner.

All dinner reservations can be made using the online booking system below.

During the day Violets operate a walk-in first come first served policy.

Please note due to the size and layout of Violets the largest party we can accommodate on a single table is 4 guests.

If you require a table of 5 guests or more please email us directly violetscafe@outlook.com
