This relatively new cafe/coffee shop popped up around 2821 Central Ave and is a delightful combination of the outdoors and pleasant eating. You can get that charming snap and eat the best sandwiches and rolls you've ever had at the same location.🍝I think we know where we're going for lunch.😋
The Alabama Theatre
The official flagship theatre of the Southeastern region, the Alabama theatre was built in 1927, and though it has had quite a bit of remodeling since then, it still holds a lot of its 20s charm. If you're looking for that Victorian-show Instagram look, this is the PERFECT spot.
Just driving by this picturesque perfection can have the affect of giving you the desire to jump out and pose as a fashion blogger. And as this is so common, it's completely unusual to *not* see several photo shoots happening on the rustic cobblestone streets of Morris Avenue.
There's a reason this place constantly becomes the perfect spot for wedding photos, senior sessions and engagement shoots. It's **picture Perfect** in every way! It has that rustic aesthetic appeal, plenty of light and greenery, and is positioned just perfectly so that any time of day becomes the perfect time of day for that swoon-worthy Snap.
Birmingham is full of structures, buildings and sculptures that perfectly reflect the hardworking and generous hearts of the people who reside within its city. And if you're looking to grab a piece of that perfect aesthetic for your Instagram feed, the places above are a PERFECT place to start.
