Our names are Rob & Rich and we are the proprietors of what we hope you will agree is a quirky, unique and simply delightful restaurant. Our idea is make you feel like not dining at the restaurant but like being invited to someone's house for lunch or tea in friendly, cosy, and a very inviting and relaxing atmosphere.

We want everyone to feel at home here…. just as if you are in our sitting room for lunch or tea – not dining out at a restaurant. Ours is an old-fashioned sitting room with individual quirky touches such as unique lights made from bowler hats


Open 6 days a week (excluding Mondays) restaurant is tastefully decorated and has a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere. The quality of the food and drinks on offer is what sets it apart from other restaurants.

Whether it be a hearty cooked breakfast, a light lunch, dinner or just a coffee and cake, there is something for everyone. Our style of food marries English & Polish cuisine with other European influences. An extensive choice of hot and cold drinks as well as alcohol is also available.


 Our eclectic restaurant is a ‘home from home’ in Birmingham. We offer a great location for Birthdays, Anniversaries, Afternoon Teas etc. In fact, we cater for any social gathering with friends, and even larger parties!  We regret that the largest party we can accommodate in the cafe is 20. We can also arrange and discuss individual menu.
Should you have any further questions please do not hesitate to ask us, give us a call: 07419 703693 or email:

Brown Irish Soda Bread, full of healthy grains, made at Old Dresser Cafe without any mess. Your bread will be at the very least 24 hours fresher than anything you can buy in the shops. Our Wholewheat brown bread is Yeast Free, contains No Added Sugar and contains wheatgerm which is rich in essential fatty acids. We pride ourselves in the fact that we do not use any preservatives, colourings or flavourings...
Commercial jams are the sickly sweet sisters of homemade jam. Homemade jam is a little luxury of love and is the epitome of comfort food. Sometimes there’s nothing better than a slice of toast or a scone that’s liberally coated in a hearty layer of sticky, sweet jam, especially if it’s packed with fresh fruit.
Our jams are made with traditional Polish recepe.


Rhubarb gin is shaping up to be the trendiest tipple—and it's simpler than you think to make it yourself. If it sounds intimidating, never fear: making a beautifully pink rhubarb gin is even simpler than making your own sloe gin. Begin with a fruit (well, technically rhubarb is a vegetable, but we’ll leave that caveat aside) that’s too sour or astringent to enjoy on its own, but which adds beautiful hue and flavour to a spirit. Add strawberries and extra sweetness to the mix—or roast with vanilla beans—and you’ve got the perfect tipple to celebrate with all season long.


All our cakes are homemade on site and are prepared fresh fоr уоu. To us, саkе iѕ much more thаn a dеѕѕеrt—therefore it’ѕ a symbol оf сеlеbrаtiоn, joy аnd tоgеthеrnеѕѕ. Our саkеѕ are hаnd-сrаftеd from ѕсrаtсh and the old fashioned way; just likе grаndmа made with whоlе buttеrmilk, frеѕh еggѕ and rеаl buttеr. You саn also taste thе love in еvеrу bite.

Too full after your meal? Why not take a slice (or two!) home to enjoy whenever you like with a cup of tea on the sofa at home with our Cakeaway service??


Authentic food – traditional quality – freshly served

We use only the freshest and finest quality ingredients and are also proud to support local growers and suppliers that enable us to create unique dishes that give you a true taste.

Each dish is freshly prepared to order to deliver a traditional quality that characterises our dishes. Our passion for food and drink ensures that we deliver maximum authenticity. It would be an understatement to say that we take great pride in every dish produced. Our idea of cooking, was not copy others, was not re-creating well known dishes. Our food is coming from our heart, whats best around, ingredients, people & design. When dish is not 100%, wont be served!

Since all our food is freshly cooked to order, please allow our chef time to do so –

we are not an fast-food restaurant!
We have an assortment of wine, beer, spirits, cocktails and soft drinks available for sale, so you can enjoy your time.
