Sunday brunch @ Ju Ju’s Cafe, Canal Square


Cafes, Review

I love a hidden gem and Ju Ju’s Cafe, found just behind Brindleyplace, is most certainly that. It’s also 15 seconds walk from my apartment – bonus. A quirky mix of chintzy lampshades and a pearl adorned unicorn called Charlie ensure you’ll remember your visit to the cafe; the lavish brunches and canal side views […]

Weekday brunch @ Primivito, Barwick Street


Bars & Pubs, Review

A few weeks ago I visited the newly revamped Primivito to check out the recently launched brunch menu. Found just yards from Hotel du Vin and Snow Hill Station, this long serving bar come casual bistro is a popular weekday hangout for the banking district. I’m used to seeing the after work crowd spilling out […]

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. 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 […]

Bottomless brunch @ Lost and Found


Bars & Pubs, Review

I’ve always had a soft spot for Lost and Found and this new-look version is top banana. Lost and Found on Bennetts Hill officially reopens Friday March 2nd, but last week some friends and I checked out the newly renovated bar to try the updated bottomless brunch. It’s a hard life.. no really it is, […]

Relaxed lunches @ Boston Tea Party, Edgbaston


Cafes, Review

I first visited Boston Tea Party in Edgbaston back in July, on a not-very-warm-at-all summer’s day. I was impressed by the high ceilings and changing aesthetics as you moved from room to room; the food wasn’t bad either. Fast forward 7 months and I found myself back at Boston Tea Party in Edgbaston (on the whispers of some […]

Coffee and crepes @ Madeleine, The Cube


Cafes, Review

Last week, after a fairly eventful online transaction with Jessops, I finally got my hands on my new camera. On the advice of some friends I bought a Sony A5000 with the view that I could finally take some decent photos, most notably of edible things. Having set up my new piece of tech I […]

Electro Brunch @ Gaucho Birmingham


Events, restaurants

With my hen do this weekend coming I had every intention of having a ‘quiet one’ on Saturday, but instead I accepted an invitation to a bloggers event at Gaucho Birmingham. The coveted Electro Brunch – a weekly all you can eat and drink thrill ride – has been on my ‘to do’ list since I […]

Boston Tea Party opens a new cafe in Edgbaston 


Cafes, Events, Review

A new cafe has opened in Edgbaston as part of the popular Boston Tea Party chain; the 20th UK opening for the group. If you’re unfamiliar with BTP, the chain is famed for hearty brunches and a relaxed, cool environment. You’ll always find people having laid back meetings or tapping away at laptops with a […]
