Fancy A Coffee In Birmingham? We’ve Got You

As a country of coffee lovers, we all claim to know where to get the best coffee in our towns or cities, but what happens when you find yourself in an unfamiliar place and suddenly get a craving for a cup of the good stuff? If you’re lucky enough to find yourself in the wonderful city of Birmingham, then getting a wonderful flat white is as easy as 1 2 3, with a vast choice of independents and chains making up the city, the choice really is yours.

I’ve put together a list of what I feel are the best places to hit up, whether you want a quiet coffee or a quick game scrabble over a cup of Joe, we’ve got you.

Saints Kitchen

One of the best places for a coffee and a sweet treat, the overflowing front counter instantly grabs your attention and the flat white is incredible. Take a seat in the window and take in the view of Saint Paul’s Square.

Chance & Counters

Smack bang in the middle of the famous Custard Factory in Digbeth is this little gem. A welcome addition to an already thriving independent scene, with over 500 board games to choose from, you’ll be spoiled for choice before you even get a look in at the finger food, milkshakes, wine and craft beer.

Medicine Bakery

Potentially Birmingham’s favourite brunch spot, Medicine has gained a cult following for its fine selection of baked goods, sourdough sandwiches and its wide of choice of delicious treats. Stop by their bakery on New Street and take in the wonderful space.

Under Pressure Espresso

This place is coffee through and through, the menu is super simple but crammed with quality, serving up a fantastic espresso using beans from London’s Workshop Coffee. Well worth a go if you’re a little bit outside of the city but fancy a serious hit of quality caffeine.
