1. ALABAMA: Feast & Forest in Birmingham
If you've got anything even vaguely resembling a sweet tooth, Feast & Forest bakery cafe — and its plentiful array of delicious sweet treats — is the place for you.

This vintage display cafe plays up a warm ambiance and industrial details, like a super-cool spiral staircase leading to a loft seating area, to fully take the cake (pun fully intended) in Birmingham's bustling bakery and brunch scene.

Must Try: Their biscuits and gravy, Nutella "pop-tarts," fig and honey croissants, and mimosas, obviously.
