Visited on a friends recommendations & I'm so glad I did. Fabulous coffee (long black) with a melt in the mouth delicious peanut chocolate brownie.
Didn't have a sandwich but the imaginative variety means I'll definitely be popping back to this little gem

Anytime I'm in Birmingham I pick up a coffee from Faculty! Its straight outside Grand Central, so no excuses! There really is a science and love involved in the process, which flows into you mouth with every draw from the cup. You really need no sugar! Forget Starbuxs, Costa or Nero, there is a new kid in town who is showing how its done! I've tasted coffee all over the World and I still come back to Faculty as it's remained my number one throughout. Love and respect to all the bar is tasty who provide my morning fixes!!!

This is where coffee meets science and the cakes are incredible.

Every time i go to my Partners from Grand Central i always call in for a coffee for the train and grab a couple of cakes as she's quite partial to a calorie of two in cake form.

The Coffee is weighed out.....not once but twice, i don't know why they do this but it's the best Coffee I've had anywhere so theres clearly a very good reason for it, the first time i called in they didn't have sweetener so i drank the coffee without and i was very surprised at how sweet it was, it really doesn't need sugar it tastes superb.

If you don't drink coffee at the chain coffee places because you are coffee snob and love a seriously good coffee, this is your place. The coffee here is really great and high quality. The Piccadilly Arcade in which it is situated is really attractive and not too busy. If you are uncomfortable sitting close to others or don't want to be served by a seriously hipster dude or don't really appreciate great coffee you may not be 100% comfortable here. I love it that there are now independent quality coffee shops in the UK because there never used to be once upon a time. Pity they don't do some nice food to accompany the great coffee (they had nothing on offer the morning we attended apart from an Anzac Biscuit). There is a nice deli place next door but it is a separate shop and they only had savory items.
