The Happy Heart Cafe Solihull Review

The Happy Heart Cafe.                                                       
26 Richmond Road,
West Midlands.
Tel: 0121 706 8674

Nicolette’s lavishly illustrated website ( nearly says it all, except that the warmth of her welcoming smile sets the atmosphere of this home from home for many local people. Opened in 2014, people from across east Birmingham and north Warwickshire are drawn to the huge variety of activities for which the Happy Heart Café, Olton, is such a popular venue. This is helped by a location on major bus routes (30 and 37), and just a few steps from Olton train station (from and into Moor Street station in Central Birmingham).

Breakfast and lunch dishes are prepared and presented with a variety, love and beauty reflective of Nicolette’s firm philosophy that food is to be respected rather than processed. Vegetarian and vegan options are readily, though not exclusively, available. Her homemade cakes and biscuits are irresistibly offered to her customers in a most attractive display. They are as good as they look, as are her colourful and artistic salads, pastas, omelettes, baguettes, paninis, sandwiches, toasties and wraps.

Solid, scrubbed 6-seat tables, and a variety of chairs and squashy sofas, ensure comfortable capacity for casual visitors and participants in special events. Wall decorations are varied and undeniably cheering. Many a visitor for one purpose has found further fascinating events to attend on the wall-posters, and the eclectic collection of books for browsing and buying combines with good internet connectivity for ‘phone and laptop reading while enjoying a huge variety of teas, coffee, soft drinks and satisfying meals.

Regular, activities include music, literary readings, explorations of spirituality, well-being and mindfulness, and many forms of craftwork, during which casual visitors for a cuppa or a meal are more than welcome.
