The food is scrummy! Delicious cooked breakfasts, freshly made sandwiches, jacket potatoes, salads and much more. All the ingredients are high quality and wherever possible local produce is used. There are vegetarian and vegan options, and even dairy & gluten free cakes available. The menu is small and perfectly formed. There are maverick touches to modern, homely food that caters to the tastes of flesh-eaters, vegetarians and vegans alike.
Not many big chains that specialise in one cuisine remember that some basic ingredients have a readily available Gluten Free option, Carluccio's does. What's even better is that the Gluten Free pasta they use you can buy in their little deli shop, It is always a busy place, with a happy mix of party groups, first dates and after-work diners. The pasta dishes are superb, as is to be expected. MENU
Anything which is situated within the arches near Snow Hill is going to be quirky and interesting. This coffee shop certainly doesn't disappoint! From the 70's style crockery to the mixed seating and cushions, it has a "cool vibe. The kitsch décor is really nice, and the selection of coffees and teas would suit even the fussiest of people. The food there is lovely & reasonably priced.
They have sourced the best quality tea and offer a range of teas to suit everyone's palate, from strong black teas through to the herbal infusions, so customers can enjoy the diverse tastes of tea. With a choice of over 70 of the best loose leaf tea. The shop is wonderfully decorated with different kinds of tea adoring the walls, all sorts of tea making paraphernalia to purchase and a small selection of tables and chairs to sit and while away some time in this relaxing environment. They also let you take your own snacks in to nibble on which is a really refreshing thing to hear; almost as refreshing as the tea itself! I would recommend for all tea fanatics.
Vee's is a great little place for a good cuppa and cake, especially if you are out and about with your Mum or if you are ladies that lunch and find yourself in the Jewellery Quarter. Not only are they a great little sandwich shop with good cake they are also a deli shop too. If you want speciality jams, wines and cheeses then you can probably find them here. I'd definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a light lunch in the Jewellery Quarter.
As the name suggests, this eatery is small and friendly and on top of that serves up some great quality food! On offer were your normal hot and cold drink selections, alongside what looked like homemade cakes.
The Meeting Place is as good as it's name and has a spacious interior which makes it a great place to meet friends. It's a little on the pricey side, I feel, but you are paying for a great location and a comfortable, quiet and welcoming space. If you ever decide to visit Cadbury World this would be an ideal place to take a break after the madness of the Chocolate Factory.
As well as the wider selection of beverages and snacks, the Tearooms at Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery now offer: speciality cheese and wine platters; afternoon tea which can be booked in advance; boulangerie & patisserie table; and satisfying meals including slow cooked lamb shank and home-made soup. Edwardian Tea room certainly looks the part; it's spacious with large regal ceilings and huge ornate windows. Decorated beautifully, the tea room really does feel like you've stepped back in time.
The decor in this place is absolutely fantastic It's eclectic, it's humorous, it's rustic, it's vibrant and HOMEly.
A favourite spot for lunch in the city centre. The coffee is good, the price is good, the food is amazing! It is popular at typical lunch times.
Currently perhaps the best coffee shop in Brum, especially for those geeks who like to discuss the dull minutia of their coffee rather than just enjoy it (or not!). Great coffee, very good cake and pastries, and service from knowledgeable staff make it all very worth the extra (literal) two steps off New Street. Make it one of your regular haunts!
Kings Heath Park Tea Room is a quintessentially and quaint British tea room, with delicious cakes, ice creams and of course some splendid tea. Situated in the centre of Kings Heath Park, It is one of the more serene places to sip on a cup of tea. It transports you from the bustle of inner-city Birmingham and nestles you into a tranquil and enchanting environment where you can forget your troubles and return to a more balanced state of mind.
Great independent coffee shop, with lots of seating, free WiFi, fantastic breakfast/brunch menu, cakes & brownies all baked on the premises. A vast choice of different coffees and teas are available, plus huge piles of fresh cakes and baked goods which are made on site.
It's a great coffee shop, with a large communal table downstairs, and a few smaller tables for two, plus big comfy chairs and tables upstairs. They serve a selection of freshly made cakes, and some chilled bottled drinks and beers. Always something going on here! It's such a busy coffee shop, which reflects the quality of their products and service. There's a good choice of less conventional coffees too, along with an ever-changing selection of cakes.
This venue offers a really wide selection of hot and cold drinks to choose from. Hot drinks and Iced coffee is available, as well as a large selection of Chai and the currently trendy Matcha style tea drink. The drinks here are wonderfully presented. The majority of the crockery is branded with Centenary lounge's retro logo. They serve good hot drinks as well as a bistro-style menu of hot and cold food. You can get food and drink to go, but why not eat in and soak up the gilded age glamour? MENUS
The staff are all super nice and enthusiastic about coffee and the things you can do with it if properly equipped. They are happy to chat about different beans and how to make various coffee drinks and even get into the chemistry behind roasting. Really comfortable atmosphere, fairly priced drinks and friendly staff make this one of the best choices to grab a hot drink and have a sit down. Their cake is also pretty delicious.
