Decided to try out this café as it's just opened and always looks busy. Was dubious as to whether they would allow kids but it's actually extremely child friendly with a children's menu and highchairs etc etc.
I had banana bread and Greek yoghurt which came super quick and tasted good. My daughter had the kids beans on toast which was just enough.
We were served by a lovely lady (dark hair and glasses) who chatted to us on and off the whole time.
There's a brilliant little outdoor seating area with a statue of a dog (?!) which is pretty cool.
I really enjoyed going here it was a break from the usual places.
Will definitely be back to try out the rest of the menu!!!
Thank you

Lovely comments for us to receive from you - thanks so much! Yes, we're still fairly new here - just 7 months in and our aim is to be a friendly, local high street cafe offering good quality teas & coffee and lighter more healthy options for food. And of course children are welcome! So glad you liked us! See you soon! ☕️☕️

Lovely cafe and have visited during the week and everything has been fine.Have been 3 times on Sunday's each time having waited and waited for drinks we have had to return to the counter to ask where our drinks were the staff have been busy chatting to each other but not serving.Watched 2 couples walk out as couldn't wait any longer ,the cafe was half empty at this time .its a shame as its a really nice place but not worth the hassle.i have watched as other people have queried where there drinks were .

Extremely disappointed and upset to hear your comments clarioBirmingham. This should not be the case at all and I assure you I will investigate immediately. Very sorry that this has given you a poor impression of us.

The type of independent that Wylde Green, Boldmere, Sutton etc. has so lacked until now.
Had the most amazing quinoa yoghurt, with berries and almond milk - the most delicious breakfast I've ever had.
It was heaven in a bowl. Lovely interior, great service and good prices too. Highly recommended.

First visit to this Cafe and most enjoyable. Nice surroundings, good service, breakfasts, brunch, selection of cakes and toasties and sandwiches. Now three places to visit within short distance of each other.
Americano and cappuccino came to £4.70.
Will visit again. RegARDS gARY sAUNDERS
