Rendezvous Cafe, Whitley Bay


The iconic Art Deco style cafe at Duke's Walk by the North Promenade was built in June 1930 by Whitley Bay & District Council, and originally called Garden Restaurant. It was refurbished and renamed as the Rendezvous Café in 1957 when the Arnone family took ownership.[1] The family-run cafe has been modernised, whilst carefully retaining the original features and is on the local heritage list for being a "perfect example of a traditional seaside ice cream parlour".[2] The cafe has featured in a prime-time TV advert for BP[3], it has also been one of the venues for the Whitley Bay Film Festival.
