Saint Caffe, Birmingham

24 March 2012

On St Paul’s Square is Saint Caffe, a stalwart of the Birmingham coffee scene.

Unfittingly for the pretty Georgian surroundings, the outside of Saints is rather plain. The inside, too, is fairly functional, with mostly black chairs and tables in front of white walls.

It does a bustling lunchtime trade (it was very busy when I arrived at about 1:30pm).

Co-owner Geoff tells me that, after the lunchtime rush, coffee takes centre stage. The staff like to kick back and chat to regulars over an espresso, one reason why Saints is a destination of choice for Brummie coffee-heads.

My coffee – a flat white – was really good. The beans come from Extract, an artisan coffee roastery in Gloucestershire.

The Saints baristas have quite the camaraderie with Birmingham’s other indie coffee shops and occasionally host their own cupping sessions too.

The coffee, and the people who make it, are the best bits about Saints.

It’s up there with Brum’s top indie coffee shops.
