Yorks Bakery Café
1-3 Newhall Street,
Despite being in my 4th year at UOB, it has taken me up until now to find a decent café in Birmingham city centre. And for those of you reading this that know me well, you'll know that I love a good café! After trudging round the shops all day, finding the perfect place that serves a great coffee and a tasty treat to go with it is a necessity in my eyes. Well I think I've found just that place. One of those inviting little coffee shops, oozing with style and good food, that's right up my street (not literally, unfortunately, otherwise I'd be spending far too much money there). It's just off New Street, but not too far away from all the shops, so it makes just the right spot to recharge your batteries!
My mum came to visit last weekend and I thought it was only right that we started the day off having a good old natter over a good cup of coffee. After a bit of research on the internet, I stumbled across Yorks Bakery Café which looked like my sort of thing and I was not disappointed. The coffee was just the right size, just the right strength and we shared the most delicious hazelnut and chocolate slice that kept us going til lunchtime. But actually, I'm sure I could have easily enjoyed all the cakes that were on offer (but that would have been greedy, I think).
And actually, I just couldn't keep away, because yesterday Abbey and I went shopping and to warm ourselves up after the relentless snow showers, we treated ourselves to a little something. We both chose the lemon drizzle cake, which was very lemony - just how I like it! So I would certainly recommend this place to anyone next shopping in Brum and there's no doubt that I will be returning myself in the not so distant future! So glad I found this little hidden gem.
