We’re now open in The Jewellery Quarter!

Provident possimus non modi

Jewellery Quarter friends and visitors alike, we’ve now opened our fourth Damascena Coffee House! Since the announcement of our new location back in July, the opening seems to have been a long-time-coming. But we had an awful lot of work to do and wanted to get everything just-right for opening.

Take a look inside

Intimate yet open, our inviting interiors boast with Middle-Eastern influence. Like with all of our stores, we’ve carefully selected our furniture and fittings to show off the great craftsmanship of the Middle East. From woodwork, to tapestry, lighting fixtures, to displayed artwork, we’ve chosen all elements to create a home away from home. Join us at your Local Far Away Coffee House.Our new social hub is perfect for a quiet coffee or business lunch… we even thought of the extra plug sockets that might be needed for all remote workers and tech-savvy creatives in the area!To find out more about our interior inspirations, please click here.

The Food

No different to our menu at the other three locations, our food is cooked fresh each day and boasts flavours of Syria. We’re proud of our Middle-Eastern dishes, and we’re delighted that our work means Birmingham can enjoy truly authentic food from afar. Check out our menu here.

Our History

We opened our doors in Moseley back in 2014, with no idea just how popular we’d become! At the time we noticed Birmingham lacked authentic food from the Middle East. We wanted to serve a cuisine we love and do it justice, whilst offering a ‘local, far away’ atmosphere. Moseley’s success allowed us to open up our Harborne and City Centre shop. This meant we could serve our delicious food to more of Birmingham! The heart of The Jewellery Quarter now has a treasured new culinary addition and we’re proud to say it’s us! Please pop by to say hello and enjoy your favourite Damascena drink or dish.To read more about our story, check out this blog post.

The Food Awards

At the 6th Food Awards England, we won the award for ‘Café/Bistro of the Year’. Both regionally for the West Midlands, AND NATIONALLY! Bringing not one, but two trophies home to Birmingham. We’re delighted to have won these awards and it feels great to know our thoughtful efforts are recognised throughout the UK. We work hard to bring delicious food and traditional middle-Eastern flavours to the people of Birmingham, and we’re astounded by the response we’ve had to our dishes since opening in Moseley 2014.We thank our customers for making it possible to grow as we have, we couldn’t do it without your ongoing support!
