Maison Mayci on Poplar Road, Kings Heath is one of my favourite places to visit. I’m a big fan of its neighbourhood Continental atmosphere and delicious homemade fresh bread and cakes which are fantastic to take away. Open in the daytime it caters for coffee and cake, lunch and on weekends brunch and is very child friendly.
Maison Mayci has a unique charm and friendliness about it. Lunch times are popular, especially at weekends when the Kings Heath masses fancy a bite or to catch up with friends. For Vegetarians, it has a varied menu that has enough different options for repeated visits.
Ruth and I visited as we do quite frequently on a Saturday lunchtime.
I chose the Veggie Platter, which is substantial in size and comes with its own fresh bread basket.

Celeriac remoulade, Roasted Mediterranean vegetables, Stuffed Vine Leaves, homemade hummus, Grated Carrot and Tartare Potato.
A good value veggie platter, nice rounded flavours, the roasted vegetables including peppers are delucioys, and compliment the lovely stuffed vine leaves which I could of eaten more of. The addition of the potatoes makes for a filling lunch, filled with varied ingredients and sufficient contrast in flavours.
It’s a lovely dish, and with the added fresh in house bread substantial. The bread in its own is worthy of a bite, but together they are well recommended.
Ruth ate a traditional Croque Monsieur sandwich, which came with potatoes and salad. She omitted the potatoes and had fries instead.
She enjoyed the good ham and the addition of the fries for an extra 50p.
The Vegetarian ‘Mediterranean’ is especially good. Also available is the Pear and Roquefort.
The sandwiches are recommended too at Maison Mayci.

Maison Mayci is a thriving and busy cafe. The quality of its patisserie, coffee and bread make it worth dropping by for that indulgence alone, But, it’s the quality of its main rustic lunch time menu that make it worthy of lingering longer. With daily soup, pasta and quiche specials also available Vegetarians are well catered for and can enjoy the rich traditional French Patisserie and bistro experience for affordable prices. The service has a personal but professional approach, charming and efficient, which only adds to the intimate experience.
Maison Mayci is a true independent and chic jewel in Kings Heath and offers a unique haven for all things Francais and a home from home in its vibrancy and delicious menu.
