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.
The bright and lively Cafe Opus at Ikon Gallery is an excellent addition to the Brindleyplace area - perfect for a lazy weekend brunch, lunch or even an evening meal. The menu at Cafe Opus is straightforward and unfussy, and the food is consistently very good. With a nice outdoor area to allow punters to sit outside and enjoy a meal or a nice glass of wine in the sunshine, it offers a great alternative to the many chain coffee shops and bars around this area.

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.
Caffé Chino is renowned for our luxury bespoke cakes, where each masterpiece is a concoction of fabulous flavours and detailed design.A Parisian-style Chinese cafe, it is totally cute and kitsch and it sells all manner of Chinese beverages including the now very popular bubble tea. But tea alone does not a cafe make, and you can also choose an unusual cake/bun from a large selection, including green tea buns. They do vegan cakes to order. MENU
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.
Cafe Bebo, part of the Paradise Forum and within the same complex as the old Birmingham central library is a great place to just relax and wind away the hours. Also incorporating the Gourmet Sandwich and Coffee company. The whole place has an bright, open and friendly atmosphere and includes free access to the cafe's WiFi service. Food in this place is really mouthwatering. It's a very busy cafe, especially in the mornings when everyone needs a nice cuppa or a latte in the way to work, home . MENUS
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.
Molly's is a proper old fashioned type cafe serving all manner of cooked breakfasts, sandwiches, lunches etc. It has parking at the rear (although you can usually get parked somewhere on The Green) and has about 8 or 9 tables for 4 people. It gets extremely busy at lunchtimes - to be expected because of its quality reputation. Here, you get really good coffee, and really good food. No fuss, no fancy pants gimmicks - just good, down to earth quality grub.
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.
Wildly popular, this pub seems to be always expanding, which means that there is plenty of seating around, although booking on Fridays and Saturdays in particular is probably a good idea. Really top place with an amazing menu. The interior, atmosphere as well as the food is amazing. Christmas menu Regular menu
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.
You'll be hard pushed to find a pub with a warmer welcome than what awaits you in The Clifden. Add to this the superb food, unique beers on tap and the most brilliantly quirky beer garden on offer and you have yourself one of the finest ways to spend an afternoon or evening.
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.
Opus is one of the best restaurants in Birmingham. Where Opus stands out is that they use fresh seasonal ingredients so if they happen to have an opportunity to buy something that morning, it will land on the menu by lunch time. This is a large spacious, light and airy restaurant that's been in Birmingham for 6 years now.
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.
