Urban Standard

Urban Standard, one of Birmingham’s best coffee houses, announced on their Facebook page that after serving the community since 2007 they will be permanently closing on Wednesday, June 17th.

Urban Standard says goodbye

Urban Standard was the brainchild of Tomasz Wrzesien. When he opened Urban Standard in 2007 his goal was to create a place to display art, antiques, and have a community space where people could gather and exchange ideas.

Located on 2nd Avenue in Birmingham’s Historic Loft District, Urban served Birmingham with a selection of coffee, breakfast, lunch and pastries and has seen a community of creatives, business people, and downtown dwellers grow up around it.

Their Facebook message sites the coronavirus pandemic as the reason that they are closing their doors for good.

The message on their Facebook page reads:

“Urban Standard loves our community deeply and are so grateful for your support. Unfortunately, due to this pandemic, we have to close our doors for good this Wednesday the 17th.
We’ve been serving our community since 2007 and so many life long relationships have been formed here. We really love Birmingham and all of our loyal customers that have been coming here for years. All the over the counter talks we’ve had over the years will be so greatly missed. Thank you for everything you’ve done for us and we’re so sad to see Urban Standard close. Come by and say goodbye and grab your last latte, we want to see you before we close.

Thank you again, Birmingham.”
