Edgar's Bakery was founded in 1998 in Birmingham, Alabama by Terry and Dottie Smith. Terry has said, "If you are asking if I had some great vision of this huge bakery...I would have to say no. All that I knew was that God was calling me to move into my own business and I obeyed. I didn't have big plans but, obviously,God did."Terry, with the encouragement and support of his wife, Dottie, followed his heart and was met by a series of blessings confirming his decision to open his own bakery. Together they established what is now repeatedly noted as Birmingham's premier bakery in publications such as Birmingham News, Birmingham Weekly, and Parent’s Connect.
From a single location, Edgar's reputation for delicious cakes has quickly spread throughout the Southeast. In April 2013, Edgar's Bakery opened in Tuscaloosa, their first location outside of the Birmingham area. Our guest book boasts customers from Atlanta, Nashville, Miami, New York, Charleston, and all over the country. Edgar’s has been featured in publications including Southern Lady, Birmingham Magazine, Portico, B-Metro, Tea Time, Celebrate, and Romantic Homes, andhas frequently participated in segments on Birmingham news programs.
With four locations and frequent customer requests for more, we view our growth as validation of our foundational commitment to high quality and genuine service. Dottie stated that, "We will never expand for expansion sake, but we will always keep an open ear to meeting our customer's needs."
Please give us your feedback on future locations so we can bring the “taste and see” experience to you. email@example.com more

Taste & See
Why Taste and See?
Have you ever stopped to consider all the glorious tastes we receive from the earth? The sweetness of a beautiful, ripe, red strawberry, the unique and exotic flavor of coconut or the warming taste of fresh ground cinnamon? Have you ever marveled in amazement over the velvety chocolate derived from the cacao bean or the soothing flavor of vanilla? How can you even begin to describe the rich aromatic taste of coffee to someone who has never experienced it?
The sheer perfection of all natural foods, from the berry to the bean, certainly can’t be duplicated. Every time we take a bite out of one of these foods we are enjoying a little of God’s goodness created just for our delight.
Here at Edgar’s, we too desire to create beautiful and delicious foods with His natural ingredients. We desire to help each of our customers taste and see the goodness of God in every product we prepare. “O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusts in Him.” Psalm 34:8
