As anyone who follows my blog will know I’m a keen coffee drinker and from time to time put up up #coffeetime reviews.
Though I have been to Six Eight Kafe on Temple Row in Birmingham City Centre (near the entrance of The Great Western Arcade) I’ve not yet reviewed it for my blog.
It is one of the best independent coffee shops in Birmingham (voted one of the top 50 in the UK by the Independent Newspaper) and though small is a bustling place with fine artisan coffee and beautiful cakes.
So the news that Six Eight Kafe are now this month January are opening up a new outlet in Millennium Point is quite exciting.
Six Eight Kafe have been running a trial pop up coffee shop there for a few months, and with its success have announced a new shop. It’s expected to be one of the largest Artisan independent coffee shops in the Midlands and will have a fully operational kitchen and will be licensed.
This will allow them to serve hot food and be open for longer hours I presume. The launch date has yet to be confirmed, but should be soon. Keep an eye on this blog for updates,
As a way of launching the fully operational kitchen Six Eight Kafe will be hosting Two Cats Roaming Kitchen roaming February pop up on the 17,18,19 February 2015.
Already they have hosted previous pop up kitchens on Temple Row so this will be a larger affair and the first with vegetarian options (on request)
Two Cats Roaming Kitchen is a pop up taking a modernist culinary approach to North Eastern European cuisine and making fine dining accessible and informal. Food is served on one shared communal table and with limited tickets for sale is a ticket only event.
Chef Nick Astley formally of The Church Inn in the Jewellery Quarter has now taken Two Cats full time after leaving The Church. Inspired by his partner Diana’s Latvian food, the Birmingham Post describes his food as ‘imaginative and ambitious’ and fellow local food blogger Full To The Brum have raved about previous pop ups taken place last summer.
As I’ve said this is the first time veggie options are available at every course so expect a modern imaginative approach to the dishes and a creative leaning to foraging and seasonal produce. It’s an exciting prospect for veggie foodies and at £31.00 for many courses, is great value.
The menu hasn’t as yet been confirmed for those dates but you may see veggie dishes such as:
Sweet and sour Jerusalem artichoke, milk ice, cream, Apple and dill.
Celeriac, truffle, hazelnut, and rose
Sorrel in February
And inventive puddings.
As well as a full non veggie menu.
Tickets are available via facebook.
There are three dates so you will need to select the best for you.
Remember if you are vegetarian then you will have to let them know in advance via Twitter or Facebook on booking.
Look out for updates on the menu on this blog, and more updates on Six Eight Kafe.
