Coffee and pastries were delicious. The coffee was flavoured with cardamom. I would recommend this to anyone who likes good food and relaxation. I also ate shawarma with falafel.

A very small place, but fantastic food and service! And top notch prices. If i ever visit Birmingham again, i will definitely go eat there again. True Lebanese cuisine! Maybe worth mentioning, i noticed they changed their name and are now called Cedar Lebanese Food.
