Unit 2, 61a St Paul's Square, Birmingham B3 1QS, UK
Perched on the edge of leafy, lovely St. Paul's Square in Birmingham's Jewellery Quarter, Saint Kitchen is a coffee shop that also prides itself, rightly, on its food. Of Birmingham's various coffee venues, Saint Kitchen has the strongest edible offering, with a full brunch menu including eggs and pancakes, a lunch menu that varies seasonally and is made freshly each day where possible, and an excellent range of sandwiches.
Coffee comes from a variety of roasters, rotated fairly regulalry, but often featuring Square Mile or Extract Coffee. Aeropress and V60 are available, as well as espresso-based drinks. The venue makes a lot of its space, with plenty of seating and the bar and kitchen area cleverly tucked into a corner. There are nice design touches, with small flower arrangements, brightly coloured cups and chairs, and a deep blue back wall to contrast the other walls, which are grey. There is very limited seating outdoors but, if the weather is good, it's a pleasant view on to the Square.
