Coffee and breakfast @ Quarter Horse Coffee, Southside


Cafes, Review

I’d been meaning to revisit Quarter Horse Coffee for a while, having repeatedly come across its roasts at various cafes across Brum, including Kanteen. The cafe itself, located on Bristol Street, is a light and airy space with wooden furniture and white washed walls. Decoration is kept to a minimum but the place feels inviting […]

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 […]

Becoming a barista @ 200 Degrees, Colmore Row


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 […]

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 […]

A weekend in Krakow, Poland


BYB Travels

Being honest, I don’t really post much about the world outside of Birmingham (this blog is called Bite Your Brum after all) but I’ve just had such a mega weekend in Krakow that I wanted to share a bit about the foodie side of the trip. Being that so many of you gave me must […]

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 […]

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 […]
