Went here with my family for pie to celebrate Father's Day. We tried several of the pies including the blackberry, the peach, and the apple.

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.

I adore the feel of this bakery! The breads and pastries will make your mouth foam! The paper lanterns hanging from the ceiling and the Bavarian music dancing around leave you happy!
