About us

Why we do what we do

Cake Stories is about bringing people together, helping people feel good and letting people know that they’re brilliant.

Whether it’s visiting our shop and being welcomed like old friends, receiving letterbox bakes knowing that someone is thinking of you, or one of the Cake Stories team working hard to make the dream work, we want anyone who plays a part in our story to be on the receiving end of our core value; People are important.

And we try to do this through the language of cake. Cake won’t change the world. But being kind to each other will… and if that involves cake, then awesome, but - however you do it - be kind and let someone know they are important.

The cake

Cake. It’s what we do. And we’re pretty flippin’ good at it. Square cakes are our signature bake stocked in our Newcastle Coffee Shop – and are the perfect treat to enjoy with friends, families, partners, children, parents or just on your own… because you deserve it!

We bake close to 100 different varieties and flavours with new creations regularly added so always check in with the Cakery or our social media to see which flavours we are stocking today.

If you can’t make it to the toon our new letterbox range will fill the tasty bake-sized hole in your life as we will deliver direct to your door!

Oh, and pssstt… watch this space for UK-wide square cake deliveries coming soon!

Our Newcastle shop

Cake Stories Jesmond - where it all began! Opened in 2015 with the aim of creating a place where we’d like to hang out, we’re proud to be part of the great Newcastle food and drink scene. Our famous cake cabinet is always stocked with loads of cakes, brownios and bakes. Perfect with a coffee, tea, a glass of wine or a craft ale. Open for sit-in and takeout until 9pm, 7 days a week. Bangin’.
Visited so many times and always friendly and superb. Excellent well made coffee and the cakes are truly sublime. Highly recommended.

Great cakes should be for everyone

Because everyone deserves great cake, our mission is that any vegan or gluten free Cake Stories bake should be so good you can't tell... which is why they taste utterly bangin’ whether you're into that kind of thing or not.
