Birmingham: Nice restaurants, mediocre coffee

bhamdining | Feb 12, 2008 11:47 AM

Does anyone know of any fine dining restaurants in Birmingham that serve really good coffee? It seems like Royal Cup has some sort of Mafia lock on the marketplace, and while it's better than Folgers, it doesn't hold a candle to some of the locally roasted brews like Higher Ground, Primavera, Red Mountain Roasters or O'Kafes.

I cannot understand why restaurants that are renowned for seeking out the highest-quality ingredients for their menus don't do the same for the coffee. I'd like to have some fantastic coffee to round out an otherwise fantastic meal.
