Cafes, Coffee, Food

Back to Scott’s of Harborne

Quarter Horse Coffee

With so many excellent food options in Birmingham, I seem to be forever trapped in an endless list as long my arm of places I want to try, and an equally long list of places I want to go back too. If I make it back to a place within a month of visiting, it’s generally a sign it’s something special. You may remember I was very impressed with the Tapas offering at Scott’s of Harborne, so on my birthday weekend, I knew I wanted to go back and try the breakfast menu.

Quarter Horse Coffee


Scott’s uses Quarter Horse Coffee, and has a good range of syrups and milk alternatives. I ordered a latte, which was smooth and tasty, with all that Quarter Horse loveliness. Dave’s Hot Chocolate was enormous, loaded with marshmallows, which vanished quickly.

Iced Latte

I also had an Iced Caramel Latte, perfect for the warm weather and served with a pretty paper straw. No plastic here!


birthday breakfast

I’m normally not one for super sweet breakfast items, but I’ll eat anything smothered in salted caramel, so I decided to try the Pancakes with Apple Sauce and Salted Caramel. It’s a very generous portion, and the pancakes were perfectly fluffy. Salted caramel was rich and delicious, but held back from turning sickly by the pairing of a slightly sharp apple sauce.


Dave hit the lunch menu and ordered a Ham and Mozarella Panini. It was packed full of good quality, thick cut ham, oozy cheese and red onion.

I didn’t manage to get a snap before it was inhaled, but the Breakfast Burrito looked gorgeous, and the little nibble I was offered made me think it cleverly uses some of the tapas dishes (definitely the bravas) for the filling, which is a very smart idea, and means you’re definitely in for deliciousness.

I’m pleased to find the breakfast menu is just as high quality as the tapas offering, and means I’ll be a regular at Scott’s for sure.

We paid for breakfast in full (but Scott very kindly gifted me a slice of cake as a birthday present), but obviously the owner is a friend and knows I’m a blogger. All words, images and opinions are my own.
