Tel: 0191 454 1535 | Sea Change Cafe is currently open!


SeaChange Cafe was established in South Shields to deliver top-notch food and memorable service to the locality. Our Ocean Road venue serves up a diverse menu in a relaxed and inclusive atmosphere – where everything you order is made fresh and from scratch.


We also make waves in our community by providing sustainable employment opportunities to people with autism and learning difficulties. Our staff recieve professional skills training in a safe and supportive environment. In return - they make SeaChange Cafe a landmark for good taste and great times.

Full of care, colour and craft - our food is as diverse as our people.

Fresh produce

Organic, locally sourced ingredients

Our menu is brought to life by organic and locally-sourced ingredients.

Vegetarian options

Vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options

We are proud to serve vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free greats – alongside our own take on popular classics.​

Healthy shakes

Fresh, healthy and nutritious

We take serious pride in our prep, and believe in fresh, healthy and nutritious nibbling. So your order is always made in the moment, from first to last component.

Our Ethos

We’re a cafe that’s committed to operating as sustainably as possible. It means sourcing fresh ingredients as locally and ethically as we are able.

Passionate about our work and determined to do better

That promise is already in the pudding. Our cakes are ethically produced and mindfully cooked by The Tasty Vegan Food Company.   They craft all of our sweet sensations just a scone’s throw from our front door. So you get the freshest fancies available, and the planet gets a sigh of relief. There really is nothing better than having ethical dessert-wizards, for neighbours.


Stay tuned and get your gladrags ready. Our programme of events will be updated regularly.
