Urban Standard offers simple hospitality in an inviting atmosphere. Daily fueling our community with coffee & food.

Staples that make a city a home.

Urban Standard is the brainchild of Tomasz (Tom) Wrzesien. His search for a home to display art, antiques, and to create a community space where people could gather and exchange ideas and inspiration led him to Urban Standard's home on 2nd Avenue in Birmingham's Historic Loft District. 

Almost immediately, Urban Standard became a success, helping to fuel Birmingham's downtown renaissance and establishing itself as an iconic Birmingham destination. 

Since it's opening in 2007, Urban Standard has been serving up Birmingham's favorite coffee, breakfast, lunch and pastry and has seen a community of creatives, business people, and downtown dwellers grow up around it.

Urban Standard believes in serving simple, delicious food and coffee alongside warm hospitality in a unique atmosphere. We want you to feel like a part of of our community whenever you're in our store. 

We hope you'll visit us soon!
