A week of food and drink in Birmingham (#1)


Ramblings

Last week ended up being super greedy busy, so I thought I’d put together some of my food and drink highlights. I started the week with a quick mooch around the newly opened Baked in Brick, which of course included a spot of lunch. The full pizza menu doesn’t run during the day so I […]

Afternoon tea @ Malmaison, Mailbox


Hotels, restaurants, Review

I first tried the afternoon tea available at Malmaison at a social media meet up back in March. I liked it so much I booked a return visit for a friend’s birthday, adding the fizz option to make it a bit more special for her. I’ve talked at length before about how much I enjoy […]

Brunch and lunch @ Wayland’s Yard, Bull Street


Cafes, Review

It’s gained quite a reputation in Worcester, so it makes me happy that the second Wayland’s Yard to open up is in sunny Birmingham.

Coffee quaffing: Second Cup


Cafes, Ramblings, Review

Hands up who likes coffee…? Hands up who likes coffee that doesn’t taste like watered down brown sludge…? ME TOO! Despite living in the UK’s second city, I have been guilty of neglecting the smaller cafes Brum has to offer from time to time. Don’t get me wrong, I would always pick a small or […]

Breakfast of champions @ Boston Tea Party


Cafes, Ramblings, Review

I’m a fan of Boston Tea Party Just thinking about Boston Tea Party breakfast makes me want to tap the heart emoji until my finger falls off. As well as creating over the top photo opps with bowls of zoats at home, I also enjoy letting someone else make a mess of the kitchen from time […]
