Friday Five #9

The strawberry scones I made yesterday got me thinking about bakeries...here are my current top five in the South! 5. Savages Bakery- Homewood, Alabama

Good ole fashion bakery and deli in downtown Homewood, Alabama. This made by hand, family owned establishment has been a community staple since 1939.  I grew up going to Savages as a child and ate many a smiley face sugar cookie.

4. Sucre- New Orleans, Louisiana

Bakery, chocolate shop, ice cream parlor....Sucre has it all.  If you are shopping on Magazine Street, it is the perfect pit stop for a caffeine and sugar buzz!

3. Mammy's Cupboard- Natchez, Mississippi

Not your traditional bakery but a lunch spot that makes their own bread and desserts so I figured it counts.  They have the most insane lemon "mile-high" meringue pie! They also have homemade blueberry lemonade- it is so yum.

2. Ike and Jane- Athens, Georgia

The. Best. Donuts. Actually everything they make is freaking delicious. Thank goodness I don't live down the street from here.

1. Continental Bakery- Birmingham, Alabama

Continental Bakery

Just looking at this photo makes me giddy. This place is my all time favorite- A little slice of France in Alabama.  This bakery is a great place to stop in for a quick breakfast or lunch with friends or solo.  If you're wanting a more substantial meal- head next door to their cafe Chez Lou Lou!

happy 4th!
