If you’re planning a visit to the Holy Island of Lindisfarne, definitely factor in a pit stop at Pilgrims Coffee.
Their coffee is home-roasted in their own back garden and goes perfectly with one of their homemade cakes or scones. If it’s lunch you’re after, they have excellent soup, sandwiches and toasties, all made using locally-sourced ingredients. The coffee house is licensed too, so you can enjoy a beer (from a local brewer, of course), wine or prosecco if you’re not the designated driver.
With two levels of indoor seating as well as a large walled garden with plenty of tables, you can choose whether you want to be cosy indoors in front of the open fire or enjoy some fresh air outdoors while sampling the cafe’s treats. The whole of Pilgrims Coffee House is dog-friendly (inside and out) so your dog can join you wherever you choose to sit, and it’s also very child-friendly so is an excellent option if you’re on a family jaunt.
There’s free wifi too, if you need to do any research to plan the next stage of your visit.
Pilgrims’ coffee beans come from Fairtrade farmers and the coffee is served in compostable cups (even the cleaning products they use are eco-friendly) so you can be sure that Pilgrims Coffee House cares about sustainability.

Great for dogs because not only are they welcome in the spacious outdoor seating area, but also in the coffee house itself. So if the weather’s not great and you need to be indoors to enjoy your visit to Pilgrim Coffee House, your dog can join you.
Great for kids because the coffee house is very child-friendly and they’ll enjoy sitting outside in the spacious walled garden. If they like birds, they’ll be fascinated by the local feathered friends, who hop about under the tables foraging for crumbs and even eat from customers’ hands. Remember to stick to tiny crumbs of wholemeal bread though – cake isn’t good for birds!
