Locally-owned rolls. Bakery plans to open a store at the former site of Klingler’s European Bakery on Montgomery Highway in Vestavia Hills this month.

Grandmother’s Cinnamon Rolls

According to rolls. Bakery owner Katie Cornutt, the idea of rolls. began when she started making and selling cinnamon rolls out of her home using her grandmother’s recipe. Using Instagram, the business took off during the COVID pandemic. 

Cornutt opened a storefront in Homewood and later shifted to a commercial bakery space in downtown Birmingham on 1st Avenue North. 

rolls. Bakery’s wholesale business has experienced  enormous success over the past year with local pickup and delivery while also supplying regional grocery markets and boutiques with its sweet and savory menu options. Presently, their products can be found at local Piggly Wiggly stores.

New Store

The new rolls. Bakery—located at 621 Montgomery Highway—replaces the short-lived Smoothie King location that had taken over the three-decade old Klingler’s European Bakery.  Local real estate company Shannon Waltchack made the deal happen.

“We’re really excited to serve the community and “love on” the people that come in here,” Cornutt told Bham Now. “We want to build relationships with our customers and make it a family-friendly environment.”

What to Expect

What can you expect to experience when you visit rolls.? Cornutt provided us a list: 

  • Cinnamon rolls—  baked fresh every day
  • A flavor of the week, with savory options like a Conecuh sausage cheddar barbecue roll or ham and swiss and provolone roll. A sweet side example? A blueberry lemon roll 
  • Homemade pop tarts— strawberry, blueberry, lemon, brown sugar and cinnamon, 
  • Build your own breakfast option which would be a roll, a fruit, sausage balls, pigs in a blanket. 
  • Yogurt with homemade granola 
  • Coffee, lattes and espresso 

Excited to Open

Cornutt is excited to have a storefront once again.

“We were looking for a space to combine the wholesale production with the retail,” she said. “I personally miss the storefront with the customer interaction and the face to face relationships. And so that’s when we found this space in Vestavia. It ticked all the boxes for me so that’s when we took the plunge and decided to do this.”

The new rolls. Bakery expects to open later this month once it passes the final inspection by the Jefferson County Department of Health.
