A sweet pitstop above the commotion of New Street. Walking up the steps of this former Victorian home of the Royal Society of Birmingham Artists, visitors are welcomed by a Bake Off-style array of cakes, pastries and cronuts – the caramel-macchiato, honeycomb and apple-crumble cronut is as divine as it is filling. The ample space also houses rotating art and photography exhibitions. Masquerading as an art aficionado while powering through a bacon-sausage-and-mushroom breakfast sandwich is very much Birmingham in 2020.
