Located a short walk from King and hunter street in the Central Business District Newcastle, Australia is the cafe Vinyl.
Stepping into Vinyl is like transcendence of the ages. Music playing varies from New York New York to other hit tunes of the ages. Surrounded by Walls of vinyl records an old piano, suitcases, record players. Posters of the Beatles, Lennon and Bob Marley. You can not help but feel at home or inspired. Vinyl is just the atmosphere to de-stress and relax away from the corporate world.
Let’s not stop there. Food is a mix of simple yet tasty gourmet sandwiches, melts (toasties) and wraps perfect for lunch time. Enough food that you are full but you are not over eating. So very healthy for a mid day luncheon with a close friend or important meeting.
The baristas are well trained and own the business. So coffee is very important and made amazingly. Unlike the majority of cafes in Newcastle the coffee is never burnt and milk is always fresh and creamy. Made traditional style with a shake of chocolate powder.
Why not relive your childhood memories with a cold very thick thickshake, my favourite being the strawberry thickshake. Yum!
I would say that their prices are on par with other local cafes but the atmosphere and music makes it better.
Overall this would have to be my favourite cafe in the Newcastle Cbd to relax away my lunch times.
