Popped here for a post gig morning bite to eat! What a lovely find right in the city centre. Lots of choice. Fresh food. Brilliant service! Will certainly go back if I'm ever in Birmingham again!

My mother and I had a lovely breakfast here. Even though they were busy, the service was quick, food was lovely and prices were reasonable. Highly recommend.

I called into Grand Central Kitchen for a quick breakfast and quick it was. I didn't have time for their full breakfast at around £12.00 so I opted for the baguette at £4.80. What I got was a third of a baguette roll with one...slice of bacon, one sausage and what I can only deem as an egg that seemed to be scrambled. I bit into it and nearly burned the roof off my mouth. I opened the baguette and nearly streamed my face off! Awful for the price, you'd be better off buying a cheap roll from the chain store around the corner.More

We are not sure that you did in fact visit us as the price you quote for a Full English breakfast is several pounds higher than what we charge. The description of the baguette size and it’s contents do not match up with what our...More

If other customers are prepared to wait for a table when it's raining outside. This says all you need to know about this superb cafe

Popped in for a quick breakfast as so highly rated on here and spent my life walking past it but never going in. I had the full breakfast. It was.....fine. Far from bad but nothing that stands out. It is kind of hard to really...write anything much about it. Busy but service was quick. It's handy for train station if you want a reliably decent meal but hard to recommend beyond thatMore

I was a stranger in town and looking for a breakfast. I had visited a few places that offered baps with the usual food on. I came across Grand Central Kitchen and thought I'd give it a go. I was greeted with a smile snd...selected the Ful English off the menu with a Latte. The service I received was only bettered by the quality of the food. What a homely, friendly place. Well worth a visit.More

Thank you for visiting us at GCK and you are no longer a stranger in town. We are pleased you enjoyed our take on a full English breakfast and the ambience of an independent establishment like ours

It's hard to pinpoint what makes this place so special. On the face of it, it's not so dissimilar to any other little cafe. I suppose, and I hate this term, but this place just has a 'positive vibe'. The breakfasts we had felt like...they were made with care, the serving staff came across as actually wanting to be there and wanting us to enjoy our meals. The poached eggs were well made, the English breakfast was excellent. Thank you for a lovely morning!More
