I am a multi-tasking, procrastinating student from Newcastle, my interests include food, coffee and sleep.

I couldn't help but notice the rabbit-esque breeding grounds of small cafés in Newcastle. The Bank Corner is another little gem located right near Wickham Station, no bigger than your average middle-income bedroom. Despite how little it is, you have ample seating diversity. Perhaps you are catching up with a very old friend and would like to get comfortable inside, surrounded by walls decorated by desert paintings, glass cabinets with aesthetic and mouth-watering treats and a giant blackboard featuring their menu - also rather diverse considering the size of their kitchen.

Alternatively you can sit on the breakfast-bar type seating overlooking the creation of your lunch and coffee. Take note of the giant Nutella jar. Always trust a person with Nutella.

Iced Coffee on soy and sourdough toast with avocado, cracked pepper and lemon. Not a bad early afternoon combo, the staff made it quickly and with skill - I know 'cause I got to watch. The Bank Corner has it straight with the coffee too... not too bitter a blend if I say so myself. I found it reasonably priced... $9 for the food and $5 for the coffee.

The only let-down of this place is the parking availability around it (you have to pay a few dollars to park your ride there), but that can be avoided if you can get to a train on the Newcastle line or ride your bike there. I like a café that's a little seclusive and away from the main strips so the extra effort is worth it.
