Warehouse-style space for coffee
Crooked Spire is the new(ish) kid on the Midland block, and has been doing a steady trade since opening in 2015.

Located in the 'G centre' it's tucked a bit out of the way down on Victoria Street, though nice and close to the train station. Happily, being out of the main bustle means ample parking, which is becoming a mission to find in booming Midland.

Crooked Spire offer a basic range of salads, toasted sandwiches and pre-made sweets (including the raw variety). Their brownies are a very decent size.

The street facing blackboard has taken on a life of its own, featuring a range of witty lines about coffee, many suggested by customers.

Epic Redback at Crooked Spire!

For all the hype about coffee, I was expecting this to be the star attraction. Alas, it's good, but not great. Feeling like a bit of an afterthought, on each occasion it's lacked the wow factor, with a watery taste. Curiously there are no teaspoons on offer either.

Despite this, Crooked Spire has filled a gap in Midland. The physical space is large and open (think uni cafeteria come industrial warehouse) with bright wall art to boot. There's a range of seating to choose from such as couches, bench seating, and café tables inside and out. There's also a selection of homewares on offer.

If the café jazz is getting a little tired this is also the place for you, with more of an upbeat vibe and a younger set. However, kids are still catered for with a toy corner and even a small play pen to keep them contained.

The space is vibrant and large enough to linger with your laptop, and equally interesting to just watch life go by. They also have convenient opening hours, from 6am. Crooked Spire has offered the kind of space Midland needed.
