The Coffeeshop Post

33

Last year, three loyal blog fans banded together and approached us about creating a guest post. The topic: their favorite Birmingham coffee shops. At the time, all 3 were grad students for whom a good coffee shop -whether for studying, relaxing, socializing, or just grabbing a really great cup of coffee or snack – is essential. So you could say they had a real passion for the topic. Not surprisingly, what they created is a fantastic, curated description of our city’s best coffee drinking experiences.  Enjoy!   Jesse Passler’s Picks The Abbey   The Abbey is airy, bright, and inviting.

Woodlawn Cycle Cafe

For the past several months, Mr. Foodie and I have been hearing about a “cycle cafe” opening in Woodlawn.  Then, in January, some very promising photos began to appear on our friends’ Facebook feeds.  We needed to get over there STAT to see for ourselves.

Clear your Saturday brunch schedule, fellow foodies.   Let me explain. I met Kristen Farmer Hall 5 years ago this month, before I even moved to Birmingham.  She was one of the very first people I met when I visited.  I always tease her that Mr Foodie and I moved to Birmingham so we could be her friends-and it’s really true. Kristen’s enthusiasm and optimism about Birmingham helped us feel confident that we would find our niche here.  And we have. When Kristen started a craft bakery, Baking Bandits, it made sense.  (Read more about the adorable story behind Baking...

Artisinal Toast Brunch @ Revelator

You never know when you’re going to just walk into a blog post. Mr Foodie and I are part of a Bike and Brunch group that meets on Sunday mornings.  We bike around downtown Bham, typically ending up at the Continental Bakery downtown for croissants and fancy granola.  This weekend, Sunday was overcast and cool-perfect riding weather.  As we coasted down 19th street toward our brunch destination, we decided we preferred to take advantage of the weather and keep riding.  We split a Quest bar (the horror, I know), said goodbye to our riding buddies, and headed south. As we...
