I’ve done it again – I’ve found a new South Staffordshire hot spot where it serves amazing food and makes my foodie heart happy. Last Bank Holiday weekend, The Geek and I decided to head out for breakfast before we tackled a day of cleaning the house. We ventured into Codsall, a village in South Staffordshire and ate at Village Coffee.
Village Coffee serves breakfast, brunch and lunch until around 5pm. It’s also home to a fantastic bakery and has freshly baked bread all across the shop. It also home to Codsall’s Digbeth Diner where it houses the famous Birmingham street food festival every month. A lot goes on in this little place!
Fancying fuel for the day, I opted to have the avocado smash with poached eggs with a super berry smoothie. I was also feeling healthy; it’s easy to over indulge on bank holidays so this seemed the perfect option. The smoothie was lovely; full of berries, sharp yet not tart. It also came in the cutest IKEA mason glass. Another reason why I need to get to IKEA pronto..
The avocado smash was exactly what I needed in my life that Monday morning. Feeling healthy yet still a really tasty breakfast. Served on sourdough bread and two poached eggs, it was heaven. There was enough avocado to cover all the bread, lime to give it a little kick and if you really wanted to go all out, there was a small dish of chilli jam on the side. The eggs were also cooked to perfection; for someone who’s not the biggest fan of eggs and sometimes they make me feel a bit funny, these eggs were the one.
The Geek ordered the bacon pancake stack with his usual boat sized latte. Seriously, my boyfriend drinks coffee by the boatload. Anyway, he opted for his usual pancakes and they looked amazing. They were so fluffy and light and full of streaky bacon. They honestly looked so good
Village Coffee, Kitchen & Bakery is fast becoming my go-to place for brunch and all things tasty. With it only being a 10 minute drive up the road, it’s perfect for us. You can find them on their website here or on Facebook!
Village Coffee, Bakery & Kitchen is located in the heart of Codsall village and is open from 8:00am – 7:00pm
