Every October we get to Birmingham for the barber vintage motorcycle show and every October we make sure to stop and have lunch at the garage. Great drinks, tasty sandwiches and always a fun atmosphere and bartender. Reminds me of a neighborhood bar you'd see on TV. No beer on tap but they have a wonderful selection of local beer... More

This place was recommended to us by a local and it lived up to his praise. Excellent concept and very tasty sandwich. Great value for money.

The Garage is a fantastic lunch spot. The outdoor dining is delightful. They offer a great selection of made to order sandwiches. Be aware that they only accept cash.

The Garage Cafe is an eccentric deli/bar. You simply tell the server what you want on your sandwich, similar to Subway-style ordering, only the sandwiches taste a lot better. The ambiance is unusual but a nice change from the normal cafe atmosphere. You can dine inside or out. We did not order anything from the bar, but for those wanting... More

This is a sandwich and soup cafe with a bar. Made to order sandwiches with fresh ingredients, but these aren't your average sandwiches. They were delicious!! Served with chips and pickle. Hubby says the beer selection is excellent and the drinks were really good also. Loved the atmosphere. Very eclectic outdoor dining. Live music Friday's and Saturdays.

This place has been in the GQ magazine and I decided to give it a try. You would never notice it driving by, but this place has a beautiful outdoor back patio that is very large. Shaded with vines and filled with antique recycled decor around the courtyard from fountains to statues to flowers. The menu is limited to sandwiches... More

Went here for the first time, as it was recommended by friends and it was different than expected. I liked it, but the others weren't. It is a very rustic area with a chill atmosphere and live music. I will more or likely visit again with others.

Just a fun light evening. This space previously houses the drivers cars for affluent families in the 40s. Now storage for architectural details and houses a cool cafe and bar. A must!!!

The wife read reviews of this place and wanted to give it a try. We weren't impressed. Disinterested staff, uninspired selection of sandwich components, small dark interior seating area/bar, and the concept of pick your own components for a sandwich just isn't our thing. I also thought it was way overpriced. Some people may find the decor interesting, but to... More

If you can find it, don't drive by! Enjoy the most unique patio in Birmingham. The bloody mary's are to die for as are the veggie sandwiches, trust them and get everything! Don't forget to bring cash, otherwise be prepared to use their atm in the back.
