Boo Boo Coffee -Coffee Birmingham Guest Post

When I was on maternity leave I quickly discovered that some of my favourite places for a coffee just weren’t built for pushchairs and small people. I was quite worried I’d be destined to see out the next few months in chain store purgatory.
Fear not! Thanks to the wonderful independent Birmingham I discovered Boo Boo Coffee in Harborne (along with a few more). I had been saved.

Boo Boo is a family run business that do coffee and kids to perfection. Even in a small space they have set up a play corner where kids are encouraged to draw on the walls in chalk and play and build all within view of the parents.

 

 

Like I said it’s a small space so you can comfortably sit at your table and use the free wifi to keep up to date with the world while they play (or if needed to stop a MiniMeltdown; parent via YouTube).
I often treat the MiniMonkey to a milkshake or smoothie which are the perfect size for kids so he is having his treat without me having to share cake (which are plentiful to choose from).
Now. Coffee.
I’m fickle with my drinks so will switch between a latte to a v60 with all variations of milk and sugar (or none at all) depending on the day I’ve had. On my last visit I had a wonderful latte with a Guatemalan guest bean and it was everything I want from a Latin American coffee. Smooth, coca hints and perfect in a wonderfully creamy latte.
Food is a varied offering of breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner all made in house with fresh and local ingredients. I would usually pop some pictures in to show you but I may have been too busy eating before the MiniMonkey tried to steal my sandwich (next time I promise).

 

Please don’t think Boo Boo is just for parents and kids. The place is visited by a varied customer base and they hold evening events such as their Live Lounge and Boo-ritto where they have hard drinks and food on offer, so a great alternative night out.

Our city is full of wonderful gems like Boo Boo and I’m on a mission to find them all and shout as loud as I can about them.
