Valentine’s Day in the Magic City

Ok lovebirds, Valentine’s Day is only two weeks away! Have you decided on your special date night and solidified a reservation? Maybe not, but you’ve come to the right place. Birmingham is filled with spots, perfect for the occasion. I’ve always secretly liked Valentine’s Day. Honestly, I’m pretty okay with any ‘holiday’ that provides an…

The Rougaroux

If you’re in need of a NOLA fix, I’ve got just the thing for you! Tucked on a side street in Forest Park sits an old house turned restaurant: The Rougaroux. The order-at-the-bar restaurant concept is decorated with a mixture of New Orleans and zombie paraphernalia – quite the combo, let me tell you. But…

Big Bad Breakfast 2.0

I don’t know about you, but I feel like the downtown Homewood area is just booming right now! It’s been so fun to hear of all the new restaurants coming to town. I can’t wait to try them all out! I’ve been getting back into the food blogging thing (ptl, it’s been too long!) and…

Fig Tree Cafe

A true Cahaba Heights treasure, Fig Tree Café sits quietly nestled behind a salon off Cahaba Heights Road. One might wonder what the truly unbelievable smell that overtakes the quaint area behind The Summit. Well, I’m going to let you in on a little secret. The goings on within the four walls of Fig Tree…

We Have Doughnuts

What started as a love for old-fashioned doughnuts has quickly manifested into an Iron City epidemic. We Have Doughnuts has dominated the Birmingham food scene with its perfect combination of crispy yet spongy, melt-in-your-mouth old fashioned doughnut base. In addition to the perfected dough (which was developed from scratch over a period of several months…

Big Bad Breakfast

Big, Bad, and truly a Birmingham gem. I’m embarrassed to admit that even after living here for over four years, I just now gave Big Bad Breakfast a shot. To be honest, I walked in expecting your average breakfast joint, complete with sticky syrup dispensers and menus and bitter coffee, but left in awe of the…

Sprout & Pour

Sprout & Pour is Birmingham’s first cold press juicery and is located in Edgewood, directly across from the antique store. What started as a small farm stand, that appeared at Pepper Place Farmer’s Market on Saturday mornings, has grown to be a nutrient haven for the health conscious people of Birmingham. This family owned company takes…

Holler & Dash

Ok, I fan-girled pretty hard this weekend. It’s almost embarrassing how excited I get about trying new restaurants… I was invited to attend the pre-launch tasting event at Holler & Dash, a new biscuit house in Homewood, that is scheduled to launch this Tuesday! The event took place this Saturday, and I took ample notes and…

Real & Rosemary

Yesterday, I had the privilege of attending the soft opening of Real & Rosemary, the newest addition to the Homewood food scene. Jennifer Mims, who is not a stranger to this fast-casual industry, is scheduled to officially launch this brand new restaurant on March 15. Jennifer was raised in a family that valued fresh vegetables and lean…

Catherine’s Market

Weekends on the lake truly are the most relaxing way to unwind and recharge. Since I moved to Birmingham, I was always reminded of this beautiful place called Lake Martin, just eighty miles from Birmingham. This summer, I finally visited and completely fell in love. Evidently, Lake Martin proves to be a perfect getaway, even during…
