Tall Poppy Foods

On Saturday we headed over to Tall Poppy Foods (Selly Oak, Birmingham) to give it a go. We'd heard of them a while ago and tried some of their cake at the West Midlands Vegan Festival, but we're not often over that side of Birmingham so it's taken us a little while to get around to it.

It's a 'hole in the wall' cafe I guess. They sell hot drinks, sandwiches & burgers as well as baked goods. The single item I had heard the most about was the BBQ Jackfruit burger - so I just had to try it. 

I really enjoyed it, although Mr B wasn't as keen. It was more of a 'sloppy joe' than a burger with some kind of coleslaw and a lovely ciabatta bun. We had a meal deal along with a large amount of bake goods and it all came to less than £14! Really good value for money. 

I also tried out their low gluten blueberry and chocolate muffins, chocolate chip cookies and molasses cookie (not all at the same time!) and really enjoyed them all. If I had to pick a favorite it'd have to be the blueberry muffin. 

If I was in the area I'd definitely return. They are 100% vegan, which is really nice to find as most places in the UK you are likely to find are vegetarian and they cater for vegans. They can be found at 492 Bristol Road, Selly Oak, B29 6BD.

UPDATE: I've just heard that they've closed down, but will hopefully be back in the near future!


  1. Hi Cherry! Your Blog is amazing thank you so much for all the work you put into it, oh and your daughter is gorgeous! :) I'm also commenting because I'd like to see whether it would be possible for you to promote the Animal Welfare Party on your blog, this is their website if you'd like more info:, one of their objectives is to also promote plant based foods and the majority of their committee are vegans. Thanks and I really hope that you will. :)
