The news was announced in October that Cullercoats Coffee Co. had taken over the popular seafront venue Cafe 19, with the new owners undergoing a £225,000 refurbishment to give the venue a major makeover before the grand reopening in November. Cafe 19 is the fourth venue from the Cullercoats company, with others having popped up across the coast in Cullercoats, Tynemouth , and most recently in the form of a French-style bistro elsewhere in Whitley Bay which opened its doors in August . The new owners have decided to keep the original Cafe 19 name to honour the beloved venue’s standout reputation in the town, but the menu has been revamped to offer something completely new. One of the biggest differences that sets the new venue apart from its namesake is that the Cullercoats Coffee Co. take on Cafe 19 now offers an evening dining menu. The family team are currently eyeing up the final jewel in the Cullercoats Coffee crown at North Shields Fish Quay - so there’s likely much more to come from the Tyneside business next year.1 month ago Chronicle Live

Senior North Korean military official Pak Jong Chon said the allies would regret their “irrevocable and awful mistake,” but did not specify what the North would do in response. South Korea said the short-range missiles traveled about 330 kilometers (91 miles), falling closer to North Korea’s eastern coast. The Japanese government initially feared North Korea fired a missile over its northern territory but later adjusted its assessment. North Korean missile activity is a particular concern in Niigata, which is home to seven reactors at the Kashiwazaki-Kariwa nuclear power plant. North Korea has been ramping up its weapons demonstrations to a record pace this year.2 months ago Tribune Chronicle
