Rest in peace, Eastside Cafe

Digbeth lost one of the jewels in its tarnished tiara earlier this month, when the Eastside Cafe shut its doors after six years of trading.

Fantastic locally-sourced food, friendly staff, proper coffee, it was a great place to meet, write and plot world domination. It was part of what made Digbeth a treasure-trove of independent life in Birmingham.

At a time when residents and others with a stake in the area are asking, how can we keep Digbeth different, the loss of the Eastside Cafe is keenly felt.
