It seems that Birmingham City Centre is going independent coffee shop crazy this month with four new openings in and around the centre in the last few weeks.
I’ve already mentioned the Six Eight Kafe which has opened at Millenium Point recently which if as popular as their original on Temple Row should do very well indeed and bring a coffee boost to Millenium Point and its eclectic mix.

Also open is the new Urban Coffee Emporium at 1 Dudley Street near New Street Station (back entrance near the yet to be opened John Lewis entrance)
Urban’s new emporium is a smaller affair, but will still be serving brunch, coffee and cake of course.

The new emporium is at the new Birmingham Open Media Gallery and has plenty of vegetarian options on its brunch and lunch menu. See above
Also recently opened are Quarter Horse Coffee which is an Oxford based coffee shop which is independent and has branched out to Birmingham at 88-90 Bristol Street B5 7AH. @Qtrhorsecofee.
Plus the intriguing Diplomat Barista at the 2 SnowHill development near Snow Hill Station.
They have a deal with the RBSA Gallery in the Jewellery Quarter to display art on their walls. Looks a good newcomer.
I’ve also heard that Java Lounge from Moseley Village are opening up at some point on Colmore Row in Birmingham City Centre.
So exciting times for coffee drinkers in central Birmingham. Expect to see reviews and reports on all of these in the next few weeks on my blog.
Happy coffee drinking.
