For those of you who follow us on Twitter, this may be old news. Nevertheless, we’re delighted to report that The Warehouse Cafe reopened last weekend, and it’s great to have it back!

The restaurant will now be run as a not-for-profit social enterprise CIC (community interest company) backed by Friends Of The Earth. And although the cafe no longer has a licence to sell alcohol, diners can bring their own.
We can be reassured that the food will be as good and award-winning as ever, with the return of the cafe’s former chef, Robert Grzesik. The rest of the team (pictured) comprises new manager Anthony Scaroni, and Mohini Howard.
In-keeping with The Warehouse Cafe’s green ethos, a bicycle courier will collect food from the city’s wholesale markets in Digbeth on two wheels. Local suppliers will also be used where possible, sourcing some food from city allotments.
Anthony said: “The interest we’ve had from people who want to come back to The Warehouse Cafe is phenomenal and we’ll be about a lot more than mung beans and flapjacks.”
