Cafe is open!
COVID Tier 2 – Please note: If you live in or are visiting a Tier 2 area (which Birmingham is), we politely remind that you should only visit the Cafe with members of your household or those who are in a support bubble with you. We need to keep EVERYONE safe so please respect the government rules. Thank you for your cooperation.
We’ve been given the We’re Good To Go mark! Awarded by The National Tourist Organisations of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, the mark is given in recognition that a hospitality business has followed government and industry Covid-19 guidelines, ensuring processes are in place to maintain cleanliness and aid social/physical distancing.
Covid 19 cafe safety measures – the safety of our customers and staff is our top priority and therefore we have made a few changes to how things work in the cafe.
Sanitizers will be at the doorways for all customers to use.
Cafe staff will be wearing protective visors at all times.
Table service – all cafe customers will be seated by staff on arrival and the maximum number at one table is 4 people. You’ll have a disposable menu to browse and staff will take your orders and payment at the table and then serve your food and drink. There is no counter service. Tables have been placed to allow for social distancing which means there is a Cafe capacity limit and some queuing may be required at peak times. Please bear with us and thanks for your patience!
NHS Test & Trace – to support this vital initiative and help contain clusters and/or outbreaks of the coronovirus, we’ll ask customers for their name and a contact number when visiting the Cafe. All data collected will be stored securely and disposed of after three weeks. It will not be used for any other purpose.
Cleaning: The Centre has been deep cleaned in advance of opening and additional cleaning will be in place on a daily basis. All cafe tables and chairs will be sanitised after each customer use.
Toilet: One will be open for cafe customers only and staff will unlock for each customer when required.
Menu: Whilst we get used to the new way of working, we’ll be offering a reduced menu but it’s still got lots of our delicious favourites including home made cakes!
Loyalty card – when you buy 10 hot drinks you’ll get a free drink AND a piece of home made cake.
Takeaway service – you can still come in and order food and drink to takeaway. Staff can show you to the takeaway ordering/waiting area.
Free Wifi – available as usual!
We’re right on Erdington High Street, full of natural light and of course look forward to seeing you soon!

I love the Harbour Café. The food is lovely and so are the staff. It’s a really peaceful place to have a coffee and my grandchildren love coming here too.
