GO The Morning After in Birmingham

Morning After Relief in Birmingham It’s the morning after the night before and forget what your mother ever told you, there really is only one cure for a hangover: food; and lots of it. So it’s just as well that there’s plenty of places to enjoy a hearty Sunday lunch or filling breakfast in Birmingham.

If you’re staying in the city you’ll probably want to stumble to the nearest available café and there’s plenty to choose from.

Go for the unhealthy choice and visit Mr Egg [map], Hurst Street. Here you’ll find all the greasiest and yet, tastiest food in the area. This café does what it says on the tin and serves eggs any way you want them so whether you favour sunny side up, scrambled or poached you’ll find it all here. You can also enjoy sausage and bacon sarnies and some good old-fashioned English breakfast tea.

The City Café [map], Brunswick Place, Brindleyplace, offers a healthier option to a greasy spoon café if you fancy restocking your energy levels with the natural sugar obtained by fruit.

The Canal Side Café [map], Worcester Bar, Gas Street, might just blow the cobwebs out of your head due to its scenic location. Here you’ll be able to get a traditional English breakfast and a bottomless mug of tea for an excellent price, and also soak up some Birmingham hospitality in this ambient location.

If you’re suffering from a headache and can’t cope with bright lights or garish décor you’ll be in heaven at Mono [map]. Located at The Arcadian on Hurst Street, Mono is a minimalist bar where clutter is definitely out. Lunchtime dishes include crispy duck salad and a range of unusual sandwiches which are perfect for eaters who prefer light bites to heavy meals.

Head over to Dudley for The Old Swan Inn [map], Halesowen Road, which has delighted hung-over customers since the 1930s.

With many period features still remaining, the décor is extravagant and traditional, and dishes include a number of excellent Sunday roasts. The more adventurous among you might like to try faggots, which is a speciality of The Old Swan or lamb encroute – in fact there’s probably every variation of meat available on the menu here – but thankfully, no swan.
