From a cozy new bookstore to The Pizitz Food Hall’s newest restaurant stall, here’s whats new in Birmingham.
Here at Bham Now, we love supporting local.
If you’re looking to shop local, but don’t know where to start, check out our local business directory with over 700 businesses.
1. Homecoming Coffee & Books
Homecoming Coffee & Books offers the beloved cozy bookstore/coffee shop combo. Their main goal—to support new and independent authors. It’s a safe and inviting space for people from all backgrounds and is founded on the principles of collective work, responsibility and cooperative economics.
2. Broad Street Peaux Boys + NOLA Ice
A new tenant is coming to The Pizitz Food Hall this spring and, thanks to their popular food trucks, we already know all about them. Get ready to welcome Broad Street Peaux Boys brought to us by the owner of NOLA Ice. The concept will open in the former Spoon & Ladle space and bring a taste of the Big Easy to The Magic City.
The stall will combine Broad Street Peaux Boys and NOLA Ice under one roof so you can grab a po’boy and a shaved ice for dessert.
