It was one of the first "arty" and stylish cafes, which I discovered back in 2014. I keep visiting this place every time I am in Birmingham. Relaxed atmosphere, good fair-trade coffee, outstanding playlist and of course WiFi.

I always try to search out independent coffee places rather than the big global brands. This place did not disappoint. The coffee was excellent and the range of cakes superb. It is rather hidden away but well worth finding.More

So it's a coffee shop and I don't drink coffee the food offering is limited to rolls and the ambience is okay but nothing special. Not sure what the buzz is about but maybe I am not comparing to other places in Birmingham

I decided to pop into six Eight Kafe as I waited for my train. I ordered a skinny latte for £3 which was far smaller than a child's sippy child. It was a 'regular' and was about half the size of a standard small coffee....More

An uninspiring decor, no staff serving when I entered and a long wait for a coffee that was acceptable. Pleasant young man serving.
