You are stepping into another world when you enter here. Caution, you may buy a plane ticket to that favorite destination away from the South after taking a 'taste trip' with their delicacies.

We enjoy the fresh brewed coffee and delicious baked goods for breakfast. Scones, doughnuts, bagels are all delicious. The homemade bread is divine! They have a variety of deserts to choose from as well. Lunch offers sandwiches and homemade sides.

Love this eclectic bakery in the heart of English Village. Great coffee, croissants, and pastries. Stop and take a moment to go in and get some local flavor!

A friend recommended this relaxed bakery in a lovely neighborhood of B'ham. I am a baker and always like to see bakeries when I travel. Continental's offerings are a bit uneven - several of the tarts needed to be baked longer and had no color...More

It was very pricey for the food amount and type. The coke was a tiny glass bottle and if you get refills your charged, $1.49/coke. The garden tuna melt was good and the price was normal for it. The macarons were awesome but WAY overpriced...More

Sorry to be so late answering this. The only breakfast foods at Continental Bakery are pastries. Coffee to go is of course in disposable cups, not the white styrofoam ones but I'm not sure they are paper. Hopefully the... More
