Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I often come to this beautiful cafe. It is a joy that we have this in Bournville! However sometimes, and in particular today, I have come across double and single buggies left in the gangway between tables, thus preventing customers from getting out from their...seats! Today, in particular, someone had left a double buggy in front of the counter thus obstructing customer's movement, especially having access to place their order. There was no one beside the buggy and it was unclear what it was doing there. Please can attention be given to this problem - it can be a dangerous hazard for both the elderly and disabled, as well as making for a lot of inconvenience for other customers?More

We won’t be back. Bad customer service, brown mushy banana on waffle, and they mixed up our sandwich order and took no responsibility, coffee was mediocre.

Used to be lovely but now it seems to need a good clean. Got my child a sandwich and there was no butter on it. Very average and overpriced.

The overall impression was of a dingy, dirty environment. The floors, windows and tables were filthy as was the toilet. The food looked ok and the coffee was good. However, the general level of cleanliness was very off putting. Bohemian it may be, but this...shouldn't preclude cleanliness.More

Wanted to go for a nice walk with a stop for a coffee and cake in the middle. Selected Kefenion as our stop. Checked their opening hours before going both on their website and on google. Closing at 5pm. Made it there for 3:10 when...they were all cleaning and closing! "We've published it on instagram and FB!". Well maybe starts with your website and google map entry instead of just thinking about social media. Obviously cares only previous customers and not new ones. Thanks for messing up our afternoon with a long walk with no rest in the middle. Second time I have issue there. Was their last chance, will consider them again.More

Great coffee in Bournville, it’s got a hippy feel to it with the bohemian interior but the coffee was great and so was the service.

I’ve just had the most delicious oaty latte, sat in Kafenions coffee garden. The service here is flawless and despite being busy it’s incredibly calming. So much more than a coffee shop. 🤗

My wife had been raving about Kafenion, so I went for a family brunch whilst on a visit to Birmingham. It's a little gem, serving freshly prepared Greek/Mediterranean food (they'd run out of eggs and salmon when we got there). We had some lovely haloumi...wraps in their 'secret garden' which was a treat on a warm spring day. It's a bit pricey (think central London prices) but worth it, and service was smiley and efficient.More

The cafe is set in the picture post card village of bournville Birmingham Close to the Cadbury chocolate factory. This hidden gem is ideal to stop off before or after your visit to Cadbury world for food and drinks. A good varied menu using really...fresh ingredients theres bound to be something to temp you. Even plain toast taste's delicious but don't take my word for it go and try it yourself, also have look round the other shops and bournville village.More

I am local to Bournville mainly working from home and I love visiting this cafe to break up my day at the computer. The food, drinks and service are always of a high standard, the atmosphere is friendly and the interior is quirky. I would...recommend the gingerbread latte cake and a window seat!More

Service was awful- For the 5 minutes I was in the café I spoke to three very unfriendly and unhelpful staff. It’s a shame as we were very much looking forward to visiting but due to the way we were spoken to and dealt with...we decided to leave, leaving some very disappointed, hungry and upset children. I have never been anywhere and made to feel so unwelcome before. Staff need some training on basic manners and how to greet customers, I won’t return.More
