Brunch and lunch @ Wayland’s Yard


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. Promising ‘proper coffee and proper food’, Wayland’s Yard can be found on Bull Street, just off Colmore Row. Its focus is brunch and lunch making it a daytime destination, ideal for […]

Becoming a barista @ 200 Degrees


Cafes, Review

I spent last weekend locked in the basement of 200 Degrees with a group of women and a man called Alex. That sounds more ominous than it was really. I was actually taking part in a barista training class offered at 200 Degrees, rather than being held in some kind of Fred West style lock […]

Simple Italian dining @ Del Villaggio


restaurants, Review

Recently we took a trip to Del Villaggio on Broad Street. I’ve never been the biggest fan of Broad Street, and until my boyfriend and I became Unlimited members of Cineworld (at the Five Ways end of the street) a few years ago I’d not spent much time in that area of the city. In […]

Attention lovers of brunch: there is a new cafe in Digbeth offering healthy but delicious food! Set in the Custard Factory, Kanteen is a new start up and it’s bloody brilliant. It launched officially yesterday (22nd Sept) and I popped along on the opening day to check out what was on offer. And I’ll say […]
