We were ever so humbled to learn Damascena had been shortlisted and recognised as one of the best independent coffee shops in the Midlands. But we were thrilled to learn we’d won!!!

Up against some great independent names, we were delighted to be running alongside them in this category. This year was our first MFDH Awards dinner, and we hope it won’t be our last! We had a fantastic night enjoying a delicious meal and great conversation with the best of the Midlands hospitality industry. With over 500 people in attendance, the room had such a fantastic buzz, as everyone cheered for all.

Best Independent Coffee Shop

We’re both shocked and delighted with our award. We feel a great sense of pride knowing that all the hard work we’ve put in over the last 5 years is appreciated. When we opened our first branch in Moseley, we had no idea how big Damascena would or could become! Thanks to our loyal customers and the ongoing support you all give, we’ve been able to expand and bring our food and drinks to more of you lovely people in Birmingham!

We have so much passion for everything on our menu and we take pride in both making and delivering such, to the highest of standards and always with a smile. A big part of who we are is the team that works alongside us. Together we are Damascena and together we make your local, far away coffee house everything it is known for.

We’d like to thank not only everyone that voted for us to win this award, but also everybody that comes to enjoy Damascena again and again – you are all part of our jigsaw puzzle and play a key role in making sure as many people know about us as possible! We love to see familiar faces, but we’re also delighted every time we welcome a new one through our doors.

Midlands Food Drink & Hospitality Awards

We were so pleased to be part of such a wonderful night of food and entertainment. Hats off to the MDFH team for creating an event that celebrates the best of the Midlands food and drink industry. We believe it’s so important to encourage and support local businesses, and these awards are a great way to acknowledge the hard work we all put in! Congratulations to everyone that won an award, but also to those that were shortlisted, too. You’re all clearly loved by many!

Thanks again for all of your votes – love from your favourite ‘Best Independent Coffee Shop’.
