Urban Coffee Company welcomes you to The School Yard!

The School Yard’s first operator, Urban Coffee Company, is overwhelmed by the welcoming Harborne reception having opened its doors for business this week.

Urban Coffee Company’s Managing Director Hannah Wolsey said; “Simon and I are so happy with how everything has turned out at The School Yard and we are really pleased to be part of the development. We’ve been open less than a week and we are already incredibly busy! We love talking to locals who are eager to reminisce about the building and what it meant and continues to mean to them.”

With the stylish coffee house having already made a name for itself on the Birmingham scene with popular emporiums in the Jewellery Quarter and Colmore Business District, the Urban Coffee Company team has been excited to bring their third emporium to the city’s clock tower address.

Neil Edginton of EDG Property commented, “It has been a pleasure to work with the Urban Coffee team to bring their great brand to The School Yard. We look forward to welcoming their neighbours in the coming weeks and months.”

Overlooking the former playground, which EDG Property has transformed into an amazing new square, and accessible off York Street, Urban Coffee Company is open 8:00am to 5:30pm weekdays and 10:00am to 5:30pm weekends.  Serving a range of freshly baked pastries, cakes and homemade sandwiches and soup, they look forward to greeting you!
