Coffee & Cakes



For the majority of us, coffee has established itself as a huge part of our lives in one way or another. Whether it’s merely a tool to get you up in the morning and give you the strength to tackle the day, or it’s a pastime and one of your greatest passions, the humble cup of coffee has transformed from a simple drink into a work of art – celebrated in all its glory and all its forms in every city across the world. So, with coffee on the mind we decided to visit one of Moseley’s finest altars to the sacred art of coffee.

Introducing Cafephilia – where coffee isn’t a drink, it’s a passion.
Located on Alcester Road (Moseley), Cafephilia is a stylish independent coffee shop dedicated to supplying a core following of loyal customers and intrigued new-comers alike with all their breakfast and light lunch needs.

With breakfast being the most important meal of the day, Cafephilia has ensured to stock up on all the firm favourites so that whatever your individual preferences you won’t be leaving with anything but a full belly and a smile on your face. From toast and croissants to waffles with syrup, nothing wakes you up better in the morning than the beautiful smell of fresh coffee and a stack of tasty waffles to accompany it.
In addition to breakfast, Cafephilia also offers patrons an eclectic light lunch menu, ranging from incredibly mouth-watering jerk chicken ciabatta sandwiches to deliciously moreish cakes and toasties – all washed down with your choice of teas, coffees, soft drinks and even milkshakes! So should you be in need of some light refreshment and feel the urge to try somewhere different to your usual routine then fear not, you’re definitely in safe hands at Cafephilia.
Upon entering Cafephilia you’re instantly hit by the intriguing and novel décor. Large hangings dominate every wall, each a fun spoof on classic pop-art paintings, and each table is adorned with fun lamps made out of anything from a kettle to glued together cassette tapes (all available to purchase should you feel that your home is in need of a whimsical lamp to brighten up your day). In addition to this, at the far end of Cafephilia patrons will find a bookcase filled with classic novels and a large, comfy leather sofa on which to just sit, relax, sip wonderful coffee and lose yourself in another world – indeed, nothing quite beats an afternoon spent absorbing the bustling coffee shop vibes whilst reading your favourite book and Cafephilia is perfect for just that (even boasting an outside seating area for those occasions when the sunshine finally decides to grace us with its presence!).
So, if you enjoy spending your morning sipping delicious coffee and slaking your hunger on devilishly moreish cake, or you’re looking for a spot of light lunch and you’re taste buds are tingling at the sound of a jerk chicken ciabatta sandwich, then make sure to head on down to Cafephilia!
