About Us


Welcome to ‘The Laughing Cat Cafe’ – open since March 2013 on the site of La Boca Coffee Shop and Art Cafe’, next to Bewick Court/City Library.

We are a warm, homely and welcoming café in a quiet area just off Newcastle’s busy Northumberland Street. We serve great coffee, other hot and cold drinks, and excellent home-made food. The Laughing Cat is the ideal place to chill, meet friends and hang out. We display local artists work in friendly, relaxing surroundings.
