CHEAP AND CHEERFUL: Where to get some tasty budget eats in Newcastle

I don’t know about you but I would much rather go out every night if the week to eat than sit at home and decide what the flip we’re meant to be having let alone how to get the ingredients to make whatever that thing is. But eating out can be expensive right?


You’re so so wrong. And here are our top five cheap eats in Newcastle.

1. The Duke of Wellington

69 Regent Street, New Lambton 

Did someone say snitty? We sure did! Here you can get two for one snittys on Monday’s and Tuesdays. What a dream. What a utopia. What a way to never have to cook.

2. The Blind Monk

76 Beaumont Street, Hamilton 

This tidy little Beaumont street hang has a variety of specials going throughout the week but none of course are better than the 90c dumplings on Tuesday. Yah 90c dumplings!

3. The Embassy Cafe

303 Hunter Street, Newcastle

Obviously, we’re not all about dinner here at Newcastle Live. After all, breakfast is apparently the most important meal of the day! Where to get one you say? For $8 or less did you say? Why not head to the Embassy Cafe on Hunter Street which is actually the longest running cafe in town.

4. Pinos

98 Maitland Road, Islington

If you haven’t been to Pinos yet, stop everything immediately and go. The food is cheap but flipping delicious and amazing. The menu is rotating and the drinks are BYO and not to mention the service is so god damn on point you’ll never want to eat at home again.

5. The Stack Shack Mayfield

189 Maitland Road, Mayfield

Don’t worry we didn’t forget about lunch either. The Stack Shack is the new kid on the block in Mayfield and hot dang do they make a great jaffle. And not just the run of the mill baked beans either. I’m talking spaghetti bolognese, pizza, etc etc.
