First class ice cream and patisserie cafe reopens with a stylish new look

AWARD winning homemade ice cream and patisserie brand, Beckleberry’s, has revealed its all new stylish dessert parlour at intu Metrocentre.

The new look space has reopened, serving high-end cakes, ice cream and desserts usually only available to First Class air and rail passengers, including milk chocolate and sea salted caramel truffle and lemon and ginger sponge cake (Gluten Free).

The Blaydon-based Beckleberry’s brand has been a family favourite in the centre for over ten years. Its intu Metrocentre café is a household name and the recent investment shows its dedication to regional customers. A familiar face in the Blue Mall, shoppers might not know that the brand also produces high-end desserts for customers travelling first-class or business class on BA, Virgin Atlantic and American Airlines.

Shoppers with a sweet tooth can now stop by at the renowned café to enjoy delicious ice creams and pastries in a new stylish and spacious setting. Every booth is fitted with smart phone and tablet charging points, comfy seating and free WiFi, providing the perfect pitstop for shoppers to meet friends, catch up on some work or simply sit back and relax.

David Craig, engineering manager at Beckleberry’s Ice Cream, said: “We’re really pleased with the new look of the café, this is our only café and it’s very important to us. We’re so proud of our North East heritage that we have installed our story around the walls for customers can read about our journey when they visit.

“The past three months have given us time to reflect on our brand, it has also allowed our chefs to experiment and create delicious new treats for our customers to enjoy. We’re excited to share our new dining area with our regulars and welcome some new faces too.

For the first time, visitors to our café will be able to enjoy lemon cremeux, and spinach and cheddar pithiviers usually exclusively served on LNER, along with brand new ice cream flavours including black coconut and “beckle-billionaires” shortbread.”

Helen Atkinson, marketing manager at intu Metrocentre, said: “The renovation of the Beckleberry’s store is great, the café has been part of our centre for a long time and we’re thrilled to see the brand investing in the store. We’re excited to share this with our shoppers who must try the new delicious flavours created by the brand.”

The new café is now open for business and can be found at the upper blue mall in the centre, near Primark.
