Friendly staff and adorable cats, we would definitely revisit. Had a cheese and onion pasty, which was excellent.

The first cat café to open in Newcastle, Mog on the Tyne is a relaxing haven for animal lovers. The café acts as both a permanent home to rescued cats, and an interactive dining experience for guests.

Options on the Mog on the Tyne menu include soup of the day and scones, plus cheekily-named ‘pawninis’, which can be enjoyed while you play along with the resident felines. There are also hot and cold drinks and a selection of brownies and cakes, and all produce is locally sourced.

Found on one of the city’s oldest streets, Mog on the Tyne in Newcastle is a light and bright setting, with murals on the walls, and the personal touch of a chocolate-dusted paw print on your hot drink.

A small admission fee of £5 at Mog on the Tyne café goes towards the cats’ welfare. Newcastle Station is a 5-minute walk away.

    We go every few weeks to see the cats .. SELF AND SISTERS with learning disability and limited mobility.
    It is expensive but the simple food, paninis, and drinks are fine for us.We appreciate we are paying more because we are paying for an experience, not just lunch !
    Staff always very welcoming without being intrusive.
    We love being given cat treats to feed the cats.
    We Dont mind at all the cats coming to try and pinch the human food, or cats on tables etc.. but i can see other people might find that yukky ,! But it is a cat cafe.. thats what it is about and why we go. Cats do not get into the kitchen.

    Facilities entrance,toilet,etc are a challenge for anyone with mobility difficulties .We just manage but struggle.Some hand rails on all steps 2 rails on the stairs .. a chair or drop down bench by the entrance door would make a big difference to us.
    Accessibity problems are why we give you 4 stars not 5 because we love to come

    They are really lovely girls who run it, it is very relaxing but fun. In terms of food they just make such an effort to present everything really nicely. It's a really lovely time.

    2nd time we have booked,great place to play with cats and have a cuppa! Cats can be a little sleepy (as cats are!) but soon spring to life when the treats come out. Had a lovely cup of earl grey and the cheese scone was gorgeous and hot. Staff are friendly and leave you to interact with the lovely kitties

    This was my second visit and was just as fun as the first time. Slightly more interactive as one of he girls gave us treats to hand out.

    Very good and friendly atmosphere, relaxing and the staff were great. The drinks we had were wonderful and the cat's speak (or meow) for themselves. Thankyou

    My Grandaughter and I shared a tuna cheese panini which was nicely presented and tasty. The atmosphere was very relaxed and friendly, even as a non cat lover! It's great for children as they don't have to sit still, it's like home from home!
