Cobalt enjoys a healthy lunch break with Spud & Lettuce

Cobalt’s brand new Healthy Fast Food café Spud & Lettuce open their doors this Wednesday 11th February to provide healthy breakfast and lunch options to the masses at Cobalt Park in North Tyneside. To celebrate the opening North Tyneside Elected Mayor, Norma Redfearn officially opened the new café today (Tuesday 10th February) at a special friends and family event.

Highbridge Business Park Ltd earlier this year announced this the final let to complete the letting of their 26,000 sq ft Cobalt Central retail development, under a month later Spud & Lettuce are opening their doors for lunch.

The diverse tenant line-up at Cobalt Central includes a 4,000 sq ft Tesco express store which anchors the central parade of shops, Greggs, Chisholm’s bookmakers, Navaho Coffee Shop, 2,850 sq ft Let to Quantum Elite Legal Professional Services & 13,700 sq ft of serviced offices on the first floor. All complimented by the weekly Tasty Thursday pop up restaurant events and other fabulous lunch time and evening events organised by the Cobalt MORE team.

Simon Gould, Business Manager at Spud & Lettuce said “We at Spud and Lettuce understand the people who are working on Cobalt need food on the fly. When building the Cobalt Business Park, the designers purposefully ensured there were walking routes and country parks to enable occupants a way of ‘getting away from it’ and to enjoy a healthy walk or cycle during breaks and lunchtimes. We wanted to support this ethos by providing not only healthy, hardy food at good value for money to take out, but also a relaxing environment to dine on our premises. Of course we aren’t just limited to spuds and salad’s, we also make fresh real fruit smoothies, poached eggs and protein drinks for those early risers who like to run or cycle in to work."

Welcoming the café Norma Redfearn said: “I am delighted to see another unit opening for business on Cobalt Park. This new healthy cafe is great news for everyone working in the area and for people living nearby who can enjoy tasty and healthy food. I would also like to wish Spud & Lettuce every success with their new venture and congratulate Cobalt Park on filling their final business unit at Cobalt Central.”

Lynn Cramman, Business Development Manager at Cobalt Park added “There is a great buzz around the park for the opening of Spud & Lettuce, you only have to look at their facebook page to see how popular it is going to be.”

“The café fits in well with the whole ethos of the business park supporting the health and wellbeing of our workforce with hundreds of events throughout the year and many active travel incentives and events. I for one am really looking forward to opening day”

“Cobalt has a workforce of 13,000 employees, that retail catchment, together with the surrounding residential areas, has proved to be highly attractive to the nation’s retailers. We are delighted to have secured the range and quality of retailers now successfully trading within Cobalt Central. The development is a great addition to Cobalt and adds significantly to the attractiveness of the overall development.”

Bob Fletcher of @retail said “Due to the outstanding success of the scheme further developments to cater for the obvious demand from Food and Beverage operators are being considered by the developers Highbridge.”

Over the last 16 years Highbridge Business Park developers of Cobalt Business Park in North Tyneside have developed the scrub lands in the centre of the borough into a thriving hub for the local community.
