Urban Brekkie - the perfect start


People were actually queueing for tables this Saturday morning for breakfast at Urban Cafe in the Jewellery Quarter. And it’s not hard to see why.

This marvellous, independent, Birmingham coffee shop and cafe serves what could might possible the tastiest breakfast in the entire city centre and bonus, they welcome dogs of every size and shape - from handbag Chihuahuas to big shaggy Alsatians and Dulux dogs - perfect amusement or petting fodder for local and visiting children, it’s like an urban zoo.

Whether you’re having a freshly made green smoothie, a chai latte, speciality rooibos tea, eggs, sausage, avocado smash or just about anything else you can think of, it’s all yummy - all of it!

On top of the fabulous food, extensive menu, light and bright decor, the staff are wonderfully friendly, super-efficient and all together lovely.


And so the verdict is in: even though our St Paul’s Square and JQ apartments have it all - fully stocked kitchens with every gadget imaginable, we’d recommend an Urban breakfast any day of the week, even if its just for the buzzy atmosphere. Close your eyes and you could be in New York City. Open your eyes and it’s even better - you’re in the Jewellery Quarter!
