What led you to own a café?

I love the café scene – I think it’s fun and creative, and I wanted to create something of my own. I wanted to create a space where people can come and enjoy incredible coffee, incredible food in a creative and cool environment.

I love going out for coffee with friends and love trying new things to eat and taste, so wanted to build a place where I could share my experience and passion with others.

What’s your favourite coffee?

V60 pour over at home – you can’t beat it.
A slow morning after a long sleep in, making a V60 with breakfast – It’s quite therapeutic and very enjoyable.

Tell us about the vibe at BSP?

The vibe we want to create is relaxed, yet cool and exciting. We often have some lo-fi beats playing, or some groovy jazz.

We have an industrial style fit out with a clean and minimal edge, and we like to keep a lot of space, so people feel comfortable and calm. I want BSP to be a place where people can come to chill, get excited by an awesome experience with excellent coffee & food, to dream and hopefully leave feeling inspired to create.

Tell us about the food offering at BSP?

I’m glad you asked! Our menu is familiar enough, so that our guests are comfortable and excited with what they order, but we really elevate these dishes to ensure they are unique and interesting.

My incredible team and I put thought and care into every detail of what we serve, to ensure we deliver an excellent experience for all our guests. I want every single product we serve to be unique and of outstanding quality. One big factor when creating our menu is to give our guests dishes that they wouldn’t usually make at home. For this reason we go above and beyond your standard café food and have a few signature dishes, you won’t find anywhere else in Newcastle.

We’re always showcasing new coffees and putting out new dishes, so I guess you could say, we love exploring new taste’s and expressing our craft in unique ways.

I want to raise the standard on the Newcastle brunch scene and create a unique an innovative dining experience for our guests.
Thanks – we’ll keep you up to date.
