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.

Discovering the Edwardian Tearooms @ Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery 

Like most Brummies I'm guilty of often overlooking some of the best parts of our city, especially some of the touristy locations. Whenever I bring anyone new to our fair city they usual ask to see the Museum & Art Gallery - mainly because it's bloody enormous and it has actual real-life mummies. There's not… Continue reading Discovering the Edwardian Tearooms @ Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery

Spicy celebrations @ Pushkar

I love Pushkar's on Broad Street. The food and service are always outstanding, and despite being in a part of Brum that many of us choose to avoid (Saturday nights on Broad St are pretty grim unless you're single and 18, let's be honest) the restaurant looks and feels quite fancy.  Ian and I first… Continue reading Spicy celebrations @ Pushkar

It's not that I don't appreciate the niceties of a 'traditional' wedding (I've been to many gorgeous churches, barns, stately homes and marquees and had… Continue reading And with this pork pie, I thee wed

Sweet treats @ Centenary Lounge

I pass through Birmingham Moor Street station at least 3 times a week, and have always been a fan of Centenary Lounge; the tiny cafe that takes pride of place in the main waiting area of the station. Offering a quiet slice of vintage respite in the always busy station, the Art Deco inspired cafe… Continue reading Sweet treats @ Centenary Lounge

Coffee and a blast from the past @ Yumm Cafe

Before I worked from home, I worked in a city centre office. Well, I say city centre, I mean Digbeth, and like many creative folk who work in this part of the city centre, my office is situated within the custard factory hub. I always really enjoyed working in this creative space, despite the fact… Continue reading Coffee and a blast from the past @ Yumm Cafe
