10 Of The Best Places To Start The Day With Brunch In Birmingham

Jack Saddler Jack Saddler


Birmingham brunch comes with variety. Both in the dishes, and the number of drinks.

A quiet weekend brunch with some healthy bites and coffee is just as easy to find as the bottomless kind, combined with the greasy grub we all crave. Here are some of the best Brummie brunches going. Breakfast won’t feel the same after a trip to any of these.

1. Boston Tea Party

Not that Boston Tea Party, of course. This one birthed in Brum in 2013, not 1773. But many the American patriot would be proud enough of the breakfast grub served up here. Heavy stacks of pancakes washed down with a piping black coffee is quintessential in the US, and BTP delivers a masterclass. Breakfast is also served all day for any delayed boozy brunch requirements.

📍 190 Corporation Street, B4 6QD

2. Bill’s Restaurant

Bill’s, the popular chain, is simmering with options for brunch. Grab pancakes, a fish-finger sandwich, a fish pie, halloumi sticks, or a casual 8oz Sirloin and you’ll just be getting started. Alongside the vast range of food, there are quirky drink options, too. Think boozy hot chocolate, espresso martinis or bitter orange and rhubarb spritz. Bill’s Birmingham brunch is available every day from 11am-5pm, so start making your way through the enormous menu!

📍 Middle Hall East, Bullring Shopping Centre, B5 4BE

3. Urban Bar and Café

At Urban, a colourful, trend-inspired breakfast is up for grabs. Tuck into the avocado, edamame and chilli smash, with optional additions including grilled halloumi and smoked tofu. If that’s not your bag, there’s cheap and cheerful peanut butter and banana on sourdough, as well as full English options fit for champions. Get down to one of the three Brummie spots for a slap-up brunch extravaganza — and throw in bottomless Bucks Fizz and Bloody Marys. There’s even pancake Tuesday to get sucked into every week.

📍 30 Church Street, Colmore Row, B3 2NP
     The Big Peg, Warstone Lane, Jewellery Quarter, Hockley, B18 6NF
     27 Lordswood Road, B17 9RP

4. The Cuban Embassy

For a lively Birmingham brunch, there’s nowhere better. Munch on some Cubanos, the heavenly Cuban grilled sandwiches with cheese and honey roast ham, among other ingredients, oozing out the crusts. Then, keep it going through the day with over 130 different types of rum to try out. If you make it to the evening, there’s live Latin music from a host of resident DJs. The Cuban Embassy shuts at 2am on Fridays and Saturdays. So, after your divine Cubanos, see if you can go the distance.

📍 23 St Mary’s Row, Moseley, B13 8HW

Hefty bottomless brunch is on offer at The Button Factory. With two (£30) or three (£35) courses, you’re striking gold with unlimited prosecco and bellinis. And, while the drinks are disappearing, you’ll be guaranteed excellent brunch grub. Salt and pepper squid mixes well with a flute full of prosecco — that’s all we’ll say!

📍 25 Frederick Street, B1 3HH

6. York’s Café and Coffee Roasters

A wide-ranging brunch that reaches around the world for its ingredients. York’s offer everything from Turkish eggs to African spiced tomatoes, to Persian mushrooms to Korean fried chicken. It has two locations, both of which are full to the Brum—sorry, brim—at weekends. Get down for all-day food with a unique style and exquisite flavour.

📍 29/30 Stephenson Street, B2 4BH
    1 Oozells Square, Brindleyplace, B1 2HS

7. The Distillery

Another top spot for a bottomless brunch. Again, it’s a case of keeping the prosecco or bellinis flowing. Line your stomach with some ‘nduja croquettes, shakshuka or churros with chocolate, while putting a worthy shift in on the bottomless element of this brunch.

📍 4 Sheepcote Street, B16 8AE

8. Kanteen

A super healthy, super tasty hangout. Combine bottomless coffee with brunch items like chorizo, poached egg, spinach and cheddar-filled croissants to hit the Sunday morning spot. That’s what Lionel Richie was on about, I guess. Elsewhere on the menu, there’s polenta with greens and hummus, as well as the divine tofu with grilled artichokes and black bean. Plus, like all these spots, there are tons of eggs. No complaints from our end on that front.

📍 Kanteen Digbeth, Gibb Street, B9 4AA

9. Gas Street Social

Perfect for a group party, Birmingham brunch style. This swanky cocktail bar delivers badass bottomless bellinis, plates of full English pancakes to fill you up and, if you want, a monstrous flat-iron breakfast steak with eggs and hash brown. Take it on from 11am if you’re a staunch believer it’s never too early for slabs of steak.

📍 The Mailbox, 166-168 Wharfside Street, B1 1RL

10. The Kitchen Garden Café

A quaint paradise dropped into King’s Heath. A café-meets-deli that gives out to a beautiful leafy garden of tranquillity. Catch some rays among nature as you tuck into that well-deserved stack of pancakes, syrup and fresh berries. Or, have a Kitchen Garden hash potato topped with bacon and poached egg, reserved especially for Sundays.

📍 17 York Rd, King’s Heath, B14 7SA
