Grumpy Panda Coffee Bar & Diner


Grumpy Panda Food is the North East's only American-style vegan diner! We're also the first dedicated vegan eatery in Gateshead. We're an independent local family run business and we absolutely love what we do. We started out as an events catering company and found the North East was lagging behind on the vegan scene, so out popped our lovely little diner, right in the heart of Gateshead town centre. 

All-day breakfasts, burgers, hotdogs and grilled sandwiches are on the menu as well as a selection of shakes and a kid's menu.

Brave (stupid) enough to take on the KRACKEN Food Challenge?

You have 15 minutes or less to complete this mighty monster of a food challenge but if you do - you'll be the proud winner of a free t-shirt or beanie, a 2 for 1 voucher for Grumpy Panda Coffee Bar & Diner, and your photo will be hung on the WALL OF FAME forever. I mean... what are you waiting for!?

Wait.. Is everything you serve vegan?

YES! As it comes, everything on our diner menu is served 100% vegan! We make our own 'eggs', 'cheese' and 'meats' on site and from scratch so we know exactly what goes into them. 

Our coffee bar is vegetarian friendly which means your shakes and hot drinks can be served exactly to your taste, whether this be with plant based or dairy milk. We have separate equipment, prep areas and fridges for our milks so there's absolutely no chance of cross-contamination. Just let us know what you'd prefer when ordering. 

I'm coming by car, where can I park?

There is free shared parking to the front of the diner, however spaces are usually limited on weekdays. There is a paid car park behind us, accessible by High W Street or Walker Terrace. There is also a large free car park at Trinity Square, just a 4 minute walk from us. Our postcode for your SatNav is NE8 1LU. 

Are you child friendly?

Absolutely! Children are welcome in the diner until 6pm Tues-Sat. We even have a cosy room at the back where children (and adults!) can play, read and colour in.

Do you take reservations?

YES. We can take reservations for single tables or whole rooms of the venue during our opening hours. Just give us a call 0191 5111567. Please note that we will only keep a table for 15 minutes after your reservation time - please call us if you are delayed or wish to cancel.
