Why we love it

Welcome to Birmingham’s 100% vegan and vegetarian food joint: The Warehouse Cafe.

The Warehouse Cafe has been a long standing institution in the city, but it recently underwent some changes to make it even mightier. It’s now a co-operative, which means it’s owned by the workers themselves; the passionate individuals you’ll find in-house day in, day out, have come together as a team to takeover the space, share responsibilities and improve the experience of working. It also means that The Warehouse Cafe team are able to listen to new ideas and implement changes that everyone in the wider Birmingham community wants to see. This change has been reflected in the space, and opened up a new dining and bar area that gives way to performances, film-screenings and talks during the evenings and weekends. It’s a heart-warming space that’s elevated by community ideals and collaborative living; it’s a venue built by everyone, for everyone.

When it comes to the food, The Warehouse Cafe team don’t mess about. Their menu is a mouth-watering treat of plant-based dishes, making the most of seasonal, organic and local vegetables sourced from nearby farms, allotments and community projects. From larger Seitan ‘doner meat’ kebabs served with skin-on-fries, and hearty Buddha bowls, to easy-going caesar salads and open sandwiches, they serve up a storm of refreshing, imaginative and flawless vegan and vegetarian dishes.

You can also rest assured that your sweet-tooth can have its demands met. Baked in Birmingham exclusively for The Warehouse Cafe, there are fresh, fully vegan cakes on offer each and everyday (with at least one GF option to boot). On our last visit, we left with a slice of black Forest gateau at our side, and their key lime pie is always a winner.

They stock a fantastic range of vegan beers from local breweries, vegetarian wines and speciality spirits, alongside a steady selection of coffees, turmeric lattes and soft drinks (including juices from Luscombe) - so consider that thirst quenched. As with their food, drinks are ethically sourced and organic where possible, so you can rest assured that every sip is full of good stuff.

Based just 5 minutes from Moor Street Station, and with ample bike parking spaces (plus a pump for keeping those tyres in check), there’s no excuse not to go and check this quality food joint. Get a lunch date in your diary ASAP.
