THE EARLY BIRD BAKERY
10% discount when you join the club
The Early Bird Bakery is an independent café with a focus on great coffee and freshly baked cakes and pastries.
The café boasts a relaxed environment where you can grab a pastry on your way to work, a casual brunch with your friends, or a break with a coffee and kids’ milkshake after a busy day of shopping.
Part of their philosophy is to bake and serve everything on the same day using only the finest, and wherever possible, locally sourced ingredients. Their attention to detail also extends to all of their offerings, with their coffee roasted locally by aficionados Hundred House Coffee.
The long-term goal of The Early Bird Bakery is to be a business with a social conscience, providing real opportunities for people to work, learn and develop within the hospitality sector. They have a strong passion for developing new talent and providing a platform for new food ideas and enterprises.
Also recognising the demand for ethically fair-traded ingredients and vegetarian/vegan alternatives, they serve a plethora of sweet goods that tick all of these boxes.
Tim C, the pastry chef, has worked in the industry for the last ten years. His career began in Birmingham and from here he has travelled the world, including Australia and Malaysia. His background is in 5* hotels and he has run the pastry kitchen at some of the most prestigious hotels in the UK.
Tim C moved back to Birmingham in January 2017 and ran stalls selling his cakes and pastries at some of the local food festivals over the summer, including the Kings Heath street festival, Birmingham Coffee Festival and Digbeth Dining Club. It was while he was running a stall at the coffee festival in 2017 that he met Tim G.
Tim G has always had a passion for food and hospitality, as well as a desire to support growing new businesses. They decided to join forces along with Tim’s brother, Joe, to complete the founding Early Bird team. Joe has a background in business management and, like his brother, has a strong passion for food, coffee and people – key values of The Early Bird Bakery.
