Lifestyle Review: Primark Disney Café in Birmingham

Did you know that on the third floor of Birmingham Primark you can visit the Disney Café? Decorated with Disney characters from floor to ceiling, we headed along to get ourselves some of the iconic Mickey waffles and see some of the magic for ourselves. 

I was lucky enough to have been invited to an event in Birmingham with a wonderful brand I work with. Not only was I excited to attend the party, but it also seemed the perfect opportunity to finally get to the Primark Disney Café with my good friend, Fran

Located in the heart of Birmingham High Street, the Birmingham Primark is actually the largest in the world - though, surprisingly, it didn't feel as overwhelming as expected. We headed straight up the escalators, and up to the third floor, where it's hard to miss the Disney Café with its colourful boots and mouse shaped tables. 

To be expected, the menu itself is pretty basic for us foodies, but let's be honest - we're not going for the food. However, if you do fancy grabbing a bite whilst you're there, the Café serves up a range of child-friendly and Disney-adult sweet and savoury treats. They offer a selection of speciality coffees, as well as hot and cold snacks, or mains with vegetarian options such as burgers and hotdogs. 

With it being the morning time, it seemed only right to order ourselves some Mickey waffles to to start the day right. You can order your own waffles starting at just £3.50 with a choice of two toppings including chocolate hazelnut sauce, strawberry sauces, sprinkles, whipped cream, Oreo crumbs or golden syrup and banana slices. Now, they don’t taste exactly like the parks - but they were really tasty! 

Whilst you wait for your food, you can enjoy the touch screen table games, or head to one of the children's interactive area underneath a neon-lit Mickey and Minnie. 

If you're planning to visit the Primark Disney Café yourself but have some questions, here's some further information before you make the trip... 

Can I book the Primark Disney Café in Birmingham? 

Thankfully we visited mid-week in the morning, but I have been told by friends who have been previously that there can sometimes be a queue. There is no way to book a table at the Primark Disney Café in Birmingham currently, but it's probably a good idea to get there nice and early or avoid the weekends. The café is open from 11am until 4pm daily. 

What is on the menu at the Primark Disney Café in Birmingham?

The Primark Disney Café in Birmingham offers a simple but varied kid’s menu. Mains on the menu include a cod dog, BBQ chicken pitta pizza, cheese and tomato pizza or chicken burger, each with a choice of sides. You can also order smoothies or juices, alongside cute Mickey fruit salad skewers, jelly, and/or a child size Mickey waffles or pancakes for dessert. 

For Disney adults, the menu currently features a buttermilk chicken burger, beef burger, vegetable bean burger, fish burger; as well as nachos and loaded fries. For those of you with a sweet tooth, there's also a selection of cakes, traybakes and full size Mickey waffles. The waffles were actually very delicious and come with up to three toppings. 

What are the prices at the Primark Disney Café in Birmingham? 

The prices at the café are very reasonable and 'Primark prices'. You can get a main, side or smoothie for £6, or a main and side for £5. All in all, for a coffee, a soft drink, some fruit and two orders of the adult-sized Mickey waffles, the total bill came to £14 - which is well worth it. 

Is the Primark Disney Café in Birmingham worth it?

Let's face it, we're not really going for the quality of the food, are we? For overall experience, it's great to stop in for an hour or so, get some photos and a quick little Disney fix. Foodies go in with low expectations, but the food really isn't all that bad for a quick stop off treat. I'm sure kids will absolutely love it - and Disney adults will too if they're needing a little Mickey pick-me-up between park trips. 

All in all, if you happen to find yourself in Birmingham, I would certainly recommend popping in to see the Disney Café, if only to get a few snaps and a waffle. I believe they've added several more locations now, including Lakeside and Merry Hill. But that's all for another lifestyle/foodie update, so tell me - have you ever visited a Primark Disney Cafe? What was your experience like? As always I love reading your comments so please do leave me lots below. 

Until next time Disney fans,
