Feast & Forest opened its doors on November 12th, and it's been buzzing with hungry customers from the start. Owners Kristen Farmer Hall and Victor King are quite familiar with the culinary life in Birmingham. Separately, they've done various dinners and pop-up shops over the years; however, now they've joined their culinary skills to create a fabulous café and bakery.
We were told so many great things about the café, so we decided to try it out for ourselves. Feast & Forest is located on 24th Street North which was previously a photography and film studio. The duo stated that they wanted their café to have a "modern nostalgia" vibe, and they definitely achieved that feel with their space.
Saying the food was "delicious" just doesn't do it justice. The "ham sammich," which sounds simple, was a mouth-watering delight. The vast dessert options at the bakery made it difficult to choose. They offer anything from cookies to homemade nutella poptarts (which were to die for.)
Overall, we had such a great experience. The café provided such a fun atmosphere, and delicious eats and treats. Congrats to Kristen Farmer Hall and Victor King on the smashing success!
