We came for a coffee, hot chocolate and pastry breakfast. The cafe is very welcoming. There's a lovely space for kids to play. The coffee was very tasty and so were the croissants and pain au chocolat

This is a quirky local cafe just off the high Street. It is very friendly. It is bike themed and you can get your bike repaired and/or serviced there. The mechanic is very knowledgeable including about e bikes as he used to work for Giant

Popped in for a quick coffee after work. Don't work in King's Heath usually but had heard of the place. Great coffee and a lovely, genuinely friendly girl behind the counter. Will definitely be back when I'm next in this part of Birmingham!
