The Warehouse Cafe, Birmingham

Postby JohnBarleycorn » Tue May 06, 2008 8:45 pm

Paid a visit to the Warehouse today, at 54-57 Allison Street, Birmingham.

The food was fantastic. All vegetarian, with a vegan option on everything, but most stuff was vegan from the start.

Started with a salad, asparagus, spring greens, pine nuts etc. Best salad I have had for years. Main course was butternut squash, with roasted veg, rice, various other bits and bobs. Again, one of the best meals I have had for years. Finished with Rhubarb crumble, with soya cream. Again, it was superb. Drank their own Rhubarb lemonade.

Everything was advertised as organic. Service was friendly and polite. Quick too.

I would recommend it to anyone. Vegan or not. It really was great food !

And I haven't even got shares in the company ! :lol:

I love the Warehouse, have never had bad service or a not nice meal there!

Been going years, might have to do a slight diversion tomorrow to lunch there, as not been for 6 weeks....

Noticed they have some job vacancies coming up over summer, be one good place to work there :D

I was very impressed. Couldn't find anything to fault about it ! Except its too far away from me ! If they would move forty miles west, I would be happy ! :lol:

Its great there :D I went for lunch today and had that fresh asparagus salad for starters and I agree it was wonderful!

Then had a mixed vegetable and chick pea tagine with herb infused cous cous and garlic soya yoghurt dressing, really fresh and tasty.

Too full for pud but got a slice of apple and pear upside down cake for tomorrow :D

I love The Warehouse Cafe, the food is excellent there. I'm not in Brum that much these days, but last went for dinner, and then breakfast the following morning a couple of weeks ago. It's a little bit out of the way, if you're travelling by train (although I believe Moor Street station is close by), but certainly worth getting down there.

I'd eat there more often, but my appetite is too big and my wallet too small. :(
