Through the eyes of a child


Try a little experiment - press your eyelid lightly and you'll notice you'll have distorted your vision!

See what makes us different!

How to find us

Birmingham is only difficult for those who think they remember it how it used to be. Signs are good, both road and pedestrian, so follow these and you'll find us easily! If in doubt, and we hate to advertise someone else, just ask for the Caffe Nero - we're right over the top !

For pedestrians with a GPS our co-ordinates are N52-47859  W1.89926. Please note that you cannot use these when coming by car as we are in a pedestrian area.
