Equium Social is Mayfield's latest cafe, and soon to be restaurant, the sister venue to The Junction's Talulah Bar.
This pictureque venture has taken up the space previously occupied by Peppertown, taking advantage of a well-loved community hub and building an audience all of its own as well.
Equium has set itself apart from many other cafes in Newcastle with their various social enterprises in addition to their fantastic food and coffee.
Visit various corners of the space and uncover divine delights at every turn.
The larder is filled with beautiful fermented foods made locally which feature on the drinks menu, on their gorgeous plates of food and are available for purchase as well. The pumpkin bowl is a must-try for savoury lovers, featuring the life-changing bread Talulah is well known for, stunning grilled pumpkin and divine house-made pickles!
We need to talk about the coffee! Their beans are roasted locally and the result is absolutely heavenly. There are very few places in Newcastle who can turn out a soy flat white with foam art that perfect, which demonstrates the skill and knowledge of the baristas behind the machine.
Around every corner inside the cafe you'll find something unique, thoughtful or mindful of building the community that puts the Social in Equium Social.
The back rooms foster a music studio, the walls exhibit works by local artists and there's even an honesty box system retro shop to be uncovered!
There are plenty of vegan options to be found on their menu with a heavy focus on quality ingredients and nourishing food. Look for items marked VGN.
