Was first disappointed that our slices of pie were taken from prewrapped pieces instead of the beautiful pies in the display case.

Located in English Village it feels you've happened upon a small bakery in a European village. Great bakery items and coffee.

When traveling to Birmingham from Atlanta, we always stop by Continental. Unless they're busy and we had a late start, great selection. If your looking for a great little neighborhood bakery or for something delicious for the trip out of town, Continental is your place.
