Last updated on November 8th, 2023
Finding a decent vegan breakfast in Birmingham isn’t a challenging task at all. And this makes me very happy indeed!
It’s an exciting time to be alive with all the vegan choices and it’s only going to keep growing. So, if finding a vegan breakfast in Birmingham is such an easy job, why would you be checking out this post?
I reckon there could be two main reasons.
- 1 – You’re new to this whole vegan thing and are after any support you can get, and if so, amazing, I’m here for you! Or
- 2 – You’re like me and get a bit stuck in a rut and keep going to the same places but today’s the day you want to mix it up.
I found I was getting bored going to the same few places that I’m familiar with, and I wanted to remind myself of all the wonderful options Birmingham has to offer. So, I set off on a hunt to find the best places for vegan breakfast in Birmingham.

- Address on New Street: 69a New St, Birmingham B2 4DU
- Address in the Mailbox: 53 Wharfside St, Birmingham B1 1RE
- Menu: Medicine Bakery New Street Menu
There are two of these in Birmingham City Centre. One is on New Street and the other is in the Mailbox. And they certainly have different vibes about them. The one on New Street is big, bright and beautiful but quite casual with a relaxed boho feel about it. Whereas the one in the Mailbox has a more upscale feel about it, which makes sense with where it is.
I’ve been to Medicine Bakery on New Street a few times recently and I’ve really enjoyed it. I like the chilled-out vibe, the mix of people and the friendly staff.
For breakfast, they have some great vegan breakfast options including an avocado tartine (open sandwich), a falafel dish, and two grilled sourdough sandwich options, the mushroom one is fab!
One of the times I visited I’d already eaten breakfast so I just went with a coffee and a vegan muffin, which was delicious! Along with the muffin, they had a few other sweet vegan options such as cookies and flapjacks.
6. All Bar One – Newhall Street
All Bar One is part of a chain of restaurants that you’ll find all around the country.
One of the perks of this place is that it doesn’t feel like a breakfast cafe, because it isn’t. It’s just as much a classy cocktail bar as it is a place to eat breakfast. So, if you’re looking for, I don’t know, say sneaky little mimosa with your vegan breakfast in Birmingham, this place is perfect!
