Seriously, how good do those cakes and macaroons look? Happy Friday! This evening I have a new foodie post for you, as part of my Birmingham Student Eats series, which has been going down very well so thank you! Yesterday I had a much-needed, lunchtime catch up with some friends at a new cafe in Selly Oak, the student hub of Birmingham. Cafe Fifty5 is a Pan-Asian cafe which not only serves delicious main courses and sides, but also shows off some gorgeous treats which I will definitely be going back again soon to try! To start off with, the…

Now I am not a beer fan, in fact I can’t stand it, so you’ll have to…

Now, I’ve been wanting to start this ‘Birmingham Student Eats’ series for a while as I am a massive foodie and, for the most part, live as a student in Birmingham. So, after my last post on a favourite, student-frequented pub of mine went so well (linked here), I thought why not?  So, here you have my second post in this new found series, do let me know what you think and I hope you enjoy! After spending last year feeling like Selly Oak, the ‘student town’ next to the University of Birmingham, was missing a cute little cafe, I…
