Anyone who claims New Street Station is the busiest place in Birmingham hasn’t been to Yorks at the weekend. Here, hungry Brummies tuck into brunch in stripped-back industrial surroundings well into the afternoon. Choose from a breakfast bar that includes homemade granola, bagels and as much freshly baked bread as you can get down you, plus an extensive range of egg-based brekkies.
American-style pancakes or a classic full English? Granola bowl - or something a bit more healthy? Whatever it is that takes your foodie fancy, Birmingham has a great selection of brunch and breakfast spots that deliver. From a vegetable-co-op-turned-organic deli to a restaurant that serves rump steak for brunch, there’s all manner of brilliant places to stock up in the morning (and through the day). Don’t look past the city’s canny bars and pubs, either: they also know a thing or two about how to whip up some stellar grub to start your weekend off properly. Still hungry? Here’s our pick of the best brunches and breakfasts in the second city.
