This was our first time to medicine cafe and we was highly dissapointed. We were waiting over 10minutes to be seated when we had booked a table. We had ordered 2 matcha lattes iced, one with dairy one without due to allergies and the waitress could not tell us which one was the dairy or not and was not given the option for our drinks to be remade.We had decided we wanted food and asked for a menu but we were then waiting over 25mins to order food, the waitress kept walking past us and by the time we were asked if we wanted food, we had to leave as our table was only reserved for an hour and a half.
I have heard amazing things about Medicine Cafe and this did not match up to the reviews I've received from a friend. The lobby became cluttered and we could not place our cake order for takeaway with the waitor bumping into is saying "sorry, it's a crap layout"
Disappointing experience. Service was slow, took 20 minutes for our drinks order to be taken. Egg and sourdough was cold and tasteless. Enjoyed the French toast though.
The food was delicious, and the portion size was huge! A first visit but would definitely be back again!
A lovely eatery in central Birmingham. I'm running out of characters.
Lovely venue, nice staff, but hard poached eggs were really disappointing.
Excellent food and service from all the staff.
Will be booking to go back again soon.
All good, service, drinks and food.
Most delicious pain au chocolat!
A lovely hidden gem! We enjoyed admiring the art on the walls while waiting for the food to arrive. The food was delicious and beautiful to look at as well. Once we finished we picked up a few colourful treats from the bakery on the way out which were enjoyed later on that evening. A must visit!
We had a brilliant lunch here, the food was delicious, the staff were extremely friendly and the best thing was that our dog was made to feel welcome! Thank you very much guys :)
Great selection of food, cakes and drinks coupled with efficient and friendly service. A lovely experience.
Amazing service (thank you!) in a lovely space but the food needs work! I've been here a couple of times and its consistently below standard, especially for the price being charged. Its just a bit greasy and flavourless - trying to be too fancy without any of the taste or finesse. The chef needs to go back to basics and stop trying to make it look fancy and focus on taste and flavour.
medicine is a lovely calm spot for some delicious food (breakfast and pastries in particular). the interior is lovely and the food was quick.
Excellent food, caters brilliantly for vegetarians/vegans. Always great service and suitable with children.
Freshly baked foods are a wonderful treat and very generous in size!
Amazing food - the cakes are nothing short of incredible.
Lovely afternoon spent here brilliant service wonderful food
Lovely place to go for coffee and cake, the cakes are out of this world. Did plan on having something a little more than a cake but so full from Maple and pecan had no room.
All the staff are wonderful and helpful.
Just watch out for the loo, steep steps.
Still nice bit the noise a bit annoying
Went on a Wednesday Lunchtime. Waited 45 minutes for our food, we weren’t in a rush so this wasn’t so much of a problem for us. Had finished our drinks well before food arrived. Ordered a side of fries which didn’t arrive until after we had eaten our main meal. Staff weren’t as attentive as we would’ve liked but it seemed very busy for a Wednesday. Not sure if I would go on a Saturday or on peak days. Food was nice. Nice atmosphere.
Lovely place! Great, welcoming staff. Smashing cakes as well!!
Great vegan food choices. Always amazing choice of cakes .
The place is nice and the food is great. However service was hit and miss they left us for ages then came over to say they were checking on our food …
Food was worth it in the end, just a bit hectic.
Good fab but restaurant & toilets shabby in places.
Lovely place for brunch with delicious food and great service and a very nice vibe/ ambience. Second time back.
I went there with some of my friends to celebrate my birthday. I have ordered sourdough toast with poached eggs and smoked salmon. Bread was really good but very hard to cut as the knives were not very sharp. Also the water glasses stunk of something like meat and I couldn’t drink any water. Cutlery was exposed in a jar and overall the place was not very hygienic/ no antiseptic gels / no barcodes for menus etc. I had a few extra menus as I was waiting for my friends and I was asked by the waiter to give them back because they didn’t have enough menus. I like the interior and the fact that is a gallery but the furniture are not suitable for a cafe and not comfortable. they clearly had a low budget and just put some random furniture together that don’t work. Not good! The food was tasty but when I got to the end of it I’ve realised there was an eggshell in my plate. The waiter asked if everything was ok and I mentioned it to him. He said he was sorry and he would tell the chef. After a while we had to leave but we haven’t heard back from the chef or at least get a discount for the meal so ended up paying the full price. So very disappointed in general! I really hope they read the reviews and actually improve on these.
We really enjoyed medicine bakery, brilliant food and a brilliant atmosphere. Also met dietary requirements so easily!
Very good for lunch. Not particularly easy to find. If you didn't know about it you would walk right past, which is a shame
Really lovely to go to an independent cafe in the middle of Birmingham! Food was some of the best breakfast food I have had before (We had the Harissa Benedict and the Sausage Brioche). Will definitely be returning again soon. Would recommend booking to avoid disappointment.
Food is great, but toilet/disabled access is not great. If this could be developed, it would be really helpful.
Great food - as always! Fantastic level of service. Unbeatable.
Really nice food and great service. Central location.
Beautiful decor amazing service food unbelievably good. See you again soon
Great food and service, very friendly and absolutely beautiful restaurant aesthetic.
Unfortunately several things went wrong with our dining experience at Medicine Bakery and would not return.
Nice food but the toilets were very dirty which puts you off!
Make sure you book or you won’t get a table! Lots of benches so if you need a back request in your booking. Fab food in a lovely setting - highly recommend! And treat yourself to a takeaway when you leave for later!
the food was good-ish but the service was horrible imo. , Waiter was abrupt and rude
Good fresh produce. Lovely ambience. Service was not great, although staff were friendly they forgot part of the order and had to be reminded 3 times. I prefer to eat with my table mate, not afterwards.
On the recommendation of a friend we were not disappointed. The food was fantastic, service was great and ambiance perfect. Just wish we’d had room for a cake after breakfast
Best brunch place in Birmingham
Went on a Sunday morning and was very busy so glad we booked! Lovely staff and relaxed atmosphere. Food very filling and worth the price. Good location.
