Open: Gorilla Coffee Cafe
A Kings Heath win
Kings Heath landed a major blow in the great Moseley versus Kings Heath food and drink war. And it is a war. While latest openings in Mose are predominantly of the chainy variety, a superb indy coffee-shop-slash-bike-workshop-slash-sandwichery-slash-bar has opened in The Heath. Sure, it's niche, but when the coffee is so good you feel it down in your toes and the sandwiches are made with Peel & Stone bread, niche works. Rare wines include Oltre Passo, Primitivo, while local brewery Fixed Wheel are well represented in the beer fridge. Oh and if you've been daft enough to sign up for the 100 mile Velo Birmingham, Gorilla Coffee Cafe lead 30 mile cycle rides every Sunday. Training?
