Food scene
Great coffee and food esp. brunch, but be careful, it gets crowded at peak hours. They play records. Very hip interior. The furniture was built by a local woodworker.

Bars and Breweries
Bham has an excellent craft beer and bar scene. Have a drink or two or three.
Award-winning craft cocktails and funny atmosphere. Bubbles float down from the ceiling every now and then. You can borrow and wear a costume. My favorite drink is the Chase Lewis.
