We'd had a swim in our town and needed lunch. We've heard good reports from friends and family about "the birds nest" and have been meaning to try it for quite some time. "Wow" it's very good. We ordered falafel....deliciously served in pita bread with fresh rocket leaves,grilled pineapple and sweet chilli, "thanks chef" ( I've had disappointing falafel in... More

Our first visit and we didn't know what to expect, but what we didn't expect to find was such a great restaurant tucked away in the marketplace. The menu isn't large but it offered a good variety, especially if you are looking for a vegetarian option. With a vegan cook in the kitchen this shouldn't be a surprise. The food... More

We live locally and regularly go to the birds nest when in town. Food and drinks are always great, service is super friendly, and the prices are great for town! Highly recommend

Came in today for lunch and not sure what would be on the menu. Took a chance on the Asian broth or so I thought because it was AMAZING and so full of flavour!! Have been to Asia it was like returning on a culinary dream. I will always return to The Birds Nest because it never fails to excite... More

Everyone knows about this place seemingly - and they should - it offers prompt service, a great vibe, great value for money and is always full of interesting patrons. I usually come for breakfast but also lunch and a brew. Cant fault it - much better than a lot of town centre cafes in Shrews.

My boyfriend and I like to come here for Saturday breakfast. I sit with (really good) coffee while he conveniently gets his hair cut at Risdon's next door. The food is brilliant especially considering how low the prices are. You can have a full breakfast or just toast and marmite, whatever you fancy.The cakes and bread are also very good... More

We had a main which was very delicious however there was not a large choice for vegetarians but I would highly recommend the mushroom burger. The cakes were amazing and reasonably priced and could easily share a slice between two. Free lemon or iced water is available to help yourself to which is a nice touch. Great atmosphere. Can't recommend... More

Best sandwiches in shrewsbury! The Dagwood and the deli (had on 2 separate occasions) were delicious! They use local fresh bread (love that) and they taste great! Great coffee and relaxed atmosphere too. Please don't change!
