The food is delicious every time I go there. My favourites are the mixed meze, falafels, avocado milkshake, Turkish coffee, the wide selection of sweets and a lot more. Love the place.....it is unique, beautiful and clean. The staff are welcoming, friendly and polite

Wonderful setting, feels like you’re miles away from the busy city centre. Excellent coffee. The walnut and sweet cheese katayif warm with melting ice cream were delicious! We also bought fresh baclava to take home! Fabulous place.

"Your Local, Far-Away Coffee House" Damascena Coffee House | Delicatessen opened its doors in June 2014. In November 2014 it was voted as winner of "Moseley In Bloom Most Captivating Cafe 2014". The name "Damascena" (meaning "Damascus Rose") reflects not only the city that inspires our food, but also our beautifully themed coffee house. Damascena Coffee House offers food that is incredibly healthy, and there is a large vegetarian menu available to give you plenty of selection. Follow the road to 'Damascena'! You'll find Damascena in Moseley Village (easily accessible by the number 1, 35 and 50 bus routes), a vibrant cosmopolitan area filled with a number of boutiques and restaurants - but none like ours. Stop by for a coffee and escape to the magical, mythical world in our friendly cafe and delicatessen.
