Savages Bakery & Deli

These days, the new and noteworthy restaurants tend to steal the spotlight from the ones that have been around for years and years. Lately, I have really enjoyed digging deeper into the history of Birmingham’s food scene. To me, being able to bring some of these classic places back to the surface is just as…

Tip Top Grill / Big Spoon Creamery

It’s a good day when you can indulge on cheeseburgers, french fries and ice cream sandwiches. Being a nutrition student, I try to indulge in moderation, blah blah blah, but still, for all my health nuts, it’s OKAY to treat yourself one day a week! So in my case, I’m going big! Tip Top Grill…

My Los Angeles List

My last Spring Break ever is quickly approaching, and I am more than excited to be jet-setting off to LA with two of my greatest friends! Lee Martin, Hannah and I are going to visit Hannah’s sister in the always sunny city of angels. Several of you have requested my “list”, and I am so…

Fig Tree Cafe

Thursday night date nights are one of my favorite things. It’s almost like a pre-celebration because there is only one more day of work standing between you and the weekend!!! Honestly, it’s the best time for date night, if you ask me. This Thursday night, Philip and I decided on Fig Tree Cafe, tucked behind a…

Miss Dots

Yesterday, I had the privilege of tasting the new hot spot in Crestline: Miss Dots. Miss Dots is a fast casual restaurant, with a Southern flare. John Cassimus, the original founder of Zoe’s Kitchen, was greatly inspired by a plantation cook while he was on a hunting trip in East Alabama. Ms. Leola Rogers, nicknamed…

Hamburger Heaven

Hamburger Heaven is a burger joint local to the Birmingham area. There are four locations, all equally as delicious. Pete Flach, the owner of these delicious fast-casual dining spots, prides himself on the quality of food he serves. “It isn’t just the beef. Even the produce is freshly delivered and cut daily, and the deli…

Feast & Forest

Some people study, others grab lunch on campus, and the rest prepare their schedules perfectly so there are no awkward breaks between their classes. I, on the other hand, use these awkward gaps in my schedule to explore the Birmingham food scene! I’ve been hearing a lot of buzz lately about a new coffee shop…

Slice Pizza and Brewhouse

This Saturday was triple date night. Philip and I met two of his best friends and their girlfriends for dinner at Slice. Slice is nestled right in the heart of Lakeview, next door to Moe’s BBQ. I feel like there is not enough buzz about Slice. It really is SO GOOD. It was started by…

Sky Castle Gastro Lounge

Wednesday night, my amazing boyfriend surprised me with a date night. First, we went to the circus, which by the way, is way under-rated these days. I’m not saying I was a captivated kid with a light-up spinny toy, but I was pretty dang close. I mean, it’s hard not to be completely captivated by…

The Pantry

As I continue my new life here in Birmingham, I am constantly made more aware of the quaint eateries that focus on growing, preparing and serving locally grown crops. Being a nutrition student is probably the main reason for this, but nonetheless, I have acquired a respect for the restaurants I review that take part…
