Getting a caffeine fix at Java Lounge
Heading towards Victoria Square recently I was reminded of Java Lounge; a popular cafe and always filled with fellow laptop zombies. Having a quick peek in through to window I noticed the place looked a little different so I decided to pop in and have a mooch – with a coffee obviously!
There’s been some changes to the seating which have improved the venue immensely. Gone is the uncomfortable seating which has been replaced by some new booths. The rustic design remains in keeping with the theme of the cafe though and it all fits in a treat.
As someone who often works remotely I’d like to give Java a special shout out for all the plug points – you rock!
I love the lighting here too. I’m not sure why some cafes in Birmingham insist on us sitting in near darkness but I much prefer this bright set up.
As the time ticked away and lunchtime hit I noticed people around me eating food, and the simple but wholesome grub looked great. It’s inspired me to come back and try one of the salads which looked fabulous when they were delivered to my neighbours.
A great little spot in the city centre for freelancers and bloggers, or as a low key meeting location. There’s also a sister cafe in Moseley, if you’re more likely to be over that side of Brum.
