Coffee & Cakes

Maison Mayci


From the stylish streets of Paris to the lesser-known architectural wonders of Bordeaux, whether you’re a local or a tourist, on your own or with a group of friends, coffee shops and cafes have been providing coffee-lovers with the ideal havens for social interaction for as long as anyone can remember. Indeed, nothing brings people together more than the mutual, unspoken appreciation for great coffee – and now we find that coffee has become a language in itself, spoken in texture and flavour, with none speaking it more fluently than the French – infamous for their quaint cafes and their unique blends.

Welcome to Maison Mayci – introducing a certain ‘je ne sais quoi’ to your morning coffee.
Located on Alcester Road (Moseley), Maison Mayci is a beautifully chic French café dedicated to bringing a taste of the Continental lifestyle to the heart of Birmingham, offering a delicious array of authentic French patisserie, rustic breads, pastries and coffees on which to slake your insatiable cravings.
Following the huge success of Maison Mayci in Kings Heath, co-owner Remi, along with his brother, decided to introduce their passion for all things Francais to the wonderfully diverse suburb of Moseley. Offering patrons incredibly delicious coffee imported from their hometown of Grenoble (for that authentic taste) along with a mouth-watering selection of traditional French pastries and cakes (all freshly baked each morning), Maison Mayci is all about allowing customers to fully immerse themselves in the tastes of the unique French culture whilst not having to leave the comfort of Birmingham.
In addition to all this, Maison Mayci is now offering all café aficionados an afternoon tea selection consisting of a fantastic array of scones with clotted cream and jam, sandwiches, quiches, biscuits, cakes and an assortment of patisseries as well as any coffee or tea with which to accompany it – the perfect way to pass the afternoon with a friend or loved one.
The café itself is beautifully decorated to combine the quintessential vibrant and stylish French café atmosphere with a quaint, rustic feel. Dark flagstone flooring compliments the cream walls as chandeliers hang from the ceiling and intriguing French artwork can be found at every turn of the head. At the front of the café, patrons are introduced to a bakery counter where freshly made authentic French patisserie, rustic breads and pastries can be purchased (available either to eat in the cafe or to take away so that you may enjoy the Continental lifestyle in the comfort of your own home), as well as an eclectic array of teas, bags of flour and pots of delicious home-made jam.
However, one of the key features of Maison Mayci is its wonderful coffee garden which allows coffee connoisseurs to sit outside in the sunshine and enjoy the tastes of France with a coffee and a croissant whilst reading a book or having a catch up with friends. Indeed, with plenty of seating (and even a birdhouse), there’s no better way to escape the hustle and bustle of daily life than sipping a cup of authentic French coffee whilst soaking up the rays – bliss!
So, if you love the thought of treating yourself to a breakfast of authentic French coffee, rustic breads and pastries, or you’re looking for somewhere relaxed to catch up with a friend over a coffee whilst catching some rays in the coffee garden, then Maison Mayci is your new home away from home! Now offering Independent Birmingham Membership Card holders 20% off Afternoon Tea (needs to be booked the day before), you can check them out at or on Twitter: @MaisonMayci
