The Mix is a community cafe with the purpose of bringing people together through the sharing of cooking and cultures.


Based at The Old Prints Works in Balsall Heath, we offer affordable and nourishing food from a regularly changing menu, with recipes inspired by and collected from members of the local community. We run a varied cultural programme for all ages, creating opportunities to participate in meaningful exchanges and build lasting relationships.


All proceeds go towards sustaining The GAP, a charity that creates time and space for young people to make sense of the world through creative and cultural action.

Opening Times: (Pavement Cafe only)

Monday - Saturday, 10 - 6pm
