Brindley Place is a hub of activity and plays host to a number of well known bars, restaurants & cafés, all at the edge of the canal. It's such a lovely, scenic location.
We have been to the National Sea Life Centre a couple of times which doesn't have a café but with it's central location in Brindley Place that really isn't a problem, the number of eateries leaves you spoilt for choice!
On our last visit my brother, Ava and I ate at Pitcher & Piano, I've been there before but only for drinks and I was intrigued to see what their menu had to offer. First impressions were very good, the décor was modern and inviting and a quick scour of the menu showed tasty looking meals at good value, including a children's meal for £5 which included a drink.
As it was before 12.00pm their breakfast menu was still on, much to my delight, so I chose their Eggs Benedict with shredded Wiltshire ham, my brother chose the P&P club sandwich and I picked the cheese & Heinz beans on toast for Ava.
My brother being the typical student that he is, wanted a cocktail, at £7.95 I thought these were really reasonably priced, I chose a non-alcoholic cocktail and mine was £3.95, it was delicious.
Our bill came to £29 which considering the quality of the food and the service we received was great value. From a parents point of view I found Pitcher & Piano to be very child-friendly. Their is a wide selection on the children's menu and Ava was given some colouring while we waited for our food.
Overall I was very impressed with Pitcher & Piano and Brindley Place as a whole. Brindley Place is a short walk from the Bullring and I would recommend a visit next time you're in Birmingham, you could always stay over with the huge selection of Travelodge hotels to choose from in Birmingham.
