Matt and Cat say...
"Newport is Mecca for light lunches. Quay Arts for meat-free dishes, One Holyrood's secret garden, fish finger butty at Skintrade.
You're spoilt for choice for lunch in Newport. If you're in need of a hearty cook-up visit Blue Door Cafe, famous for its breakfast brunch. Probably more meat than your cardiologist would advise, but hey - chicken and stuffing for breakfast! Quay Arts south-facing terrace is a great spot for a natter with friends, over a meat-free dish or local crab on toast. One Holyrood, with its secret garden, is one of our favourites. Check out the specials for tasty veggie and gluten-free lunches. Another hidden gem is the Coffee Room at Skintrade. Cooked-to-order omelette is our go-to dish, plus local artisan coffee. For something more traditional visit God's Providence "
