A superb family-run cafe, coffee house and bar located in the village of Rubery, just south of Birmingham city centre and serving up affordable and delicious breakfasts, lunches, cakes and coffee.
With a fantastic terraced & sheltered outdoor seating area complete with BBQ in the summer months and plenty of space inside for those cooler rides, it’s ideal for cycling groups of all sizes.
For those early risers on their all-day breakfast menu there’s a selection of English, veggie and small breakfasts, eggs Benedict / Florentine or Royale, toasted sourdough with smashed avo and bubble & squeak and hot breakfast baps. Additionally you’ll find banana & Nutella, fruit & honey or smoked bacon & maple syrup pancakes and a very affordable butter & toast at £1.50 for those looking for something quick.
For those arriving looking for lunch there’s a large selection of burgers including their dirty chilli burger served with cheddar, pickles, chorizo mayo & Smokey Joe sauce and a range of toasties, sandwiches and jacket potatoes.
For smaller appetites there’s a Buddha salad bowl (with lemon & pepper cous cous, chick peas, sweetcorn and much more) alongside a fish finger bap with homemade tartar, ham & eggs with proper chunky chips, toad in the hole and soup with bread.
On Thursday evenings they’re open until 20:30 and you’ll find a varying BBQ menu which during our visit included a jerk chicken with mayo salad, minted lamb chops, sheesh kebabs & mango salsa or jerk jackfruit with aubergine coleslaw.
As for recommendations do try their dirty eggs Benedict (with chorizo) or the popular and very generous full English. For those with a sweet tooth like us their freshly baked scones with jam & cream are a real hit as is their very moist carrot cake or juicy flapjacks.
