We visited GCK for breakfast prior to doing a bit of Xmas shopping. We chose the cafe after seeing the excellent reviews and we were not disappointed. A short wait whilst a table became available but we were quickly found a table and had a...fab breakfast. All staff were very friendly and the food could not be faulted - thanks. Only thing I would say is, have you considered adding pancakes or waffles to the menu ?, might be a liking for some people.More

Thank you for your suggestion which I’m sure the owner Sina will consider. It’s a nice idea

Well, what can I say, there’s a reason this place is top for great breakfast in Birmingham. We did wait for a while outside the restaurant and was greeted with menus being handed to us to look through before getting a table. And once we...were given a table and service staff were attentive and quick in getting our order. Hubby ordered the full breakfast while I asked for the omelette with onions, peppers, mushrooms and green chillies and it was by far the best omelette I’ve ever had. The vegetables were fresh and was cooked to perfection. Hats off to the chef! Well done to all.More

Stayed at Birmingham for two nights, had breakfast at this cafe both mornings, food was freshly prepared, tasty and the service was excellent, companies should send staff here to see great teamwork in action. Cannot recommend the place enough

This place really doesn’t need another great review, since it as so many but what the hell its that good. Went this morning, freezing cold and just managed to walk straight in. Five minutes later the cue outside is five couples deep and they are...waiting for a table. The staff are amazing what ever they are paid its not enough. They know exactly how to engage with people. I have a lot of intolerances to food ( not a problem not a fuss for this place) full gluten few breakfast, my daughter had the omelettes cheese and mushroom on toast (picky eater ) the food vanished, my husband had the veggie breakfast and he was very happy. Three big breakfasts three drinks £32. So pleased we found this place. Thank you to the staff.More

We popped in here after arriving on the train to Birmingham for a day out. Absolutely lovely staff and good value food and coffee. Very clean too, tables were cleared and cleaned promptly before customers were seated. What a contrast to our lunch at Marco...Pierre White's Steakhouse where we felt ripped off and underwhelmed by the food!More
