Last Thursday, 12th February, Millennium Point and Six Eight Kafé welcomed more than 80 guests to celebrate the opening. Guests were treated to a range of exciting canapés, drinks and live entertainment – just a taste of what customers can expect from the new café located on Level 2.

The coffee shop will be open to the general public as well as serving students from the neighbouring Birmingham City University.

Voted one of the top 50 coffee shops in the UK by the Independent, Six Eight Kafé is one of the largest independent artisan coffee shops in the Midlands and has developed a loyal following since opening in Temple Row in 2011.

Philip Singleton, Chief Executive at Millennium Point, said: “We have has always prided ourselves on the quality of the businesses that base themselves here. The arrival of Six Eight Kafé undoubtedly is a coup, as it is an independent company whose reputation for excellence is well-known across Birmingham and beyond.

“The opening of Six Eight Kafé has allowed us to create a social hub for people to unwind, whilst providing an improved choice of high quality food and refreshments. We hope visitors and those who work in the venue enjoy Six Eight Kafé’s great coffee for many years to come.”

The arrival of Six Eight Kafé’s acclaimed range of coffee, speciality teas and artisan food into Millennium Point marks the start of an ambitious leap forward for a business at the forefront of Birmingham’s independent coffee revolution.

Devinder Dhallu, founder of Six Eight Kafé, added: “We are delighted to be joining Eastside’s Millennium Point and providing great coffee at the heart of the business scene. It is a fantastic new addition to the local coffee scene, placed in one of the city’s most innovative and forward thinking venues.

“We are so proud to be opening the largest artisan coffee shop in the Midlands, exactly four years after what was one of the smallest coffee shops at the time.”
