The Bakingtist Bakery & Cafe
Open: Wed-Fri 7am – 3pm & Sat-Sun 8am – 3pm Closed: Monday-Tuesday
The Bakingtist is a science-forward bakery & cafe in downtown Huntsville, Alabama. The owner, Heidi, earned degrees in biochemistry and environmental engineering, and applied them both to her early career in environmental consulting.
After stumbling upon a baking science text book, Heidi discovered her absolute favorite field of science: baking science.
Seeing the love and immersion that baking gave Heidi, and after a very tragic loss of her mother, her husband Justin named her “The Bakingtist”… a scientist that bakes.
And that was the beginning of a long journey. Heidi baked out of her & Justin’s various apartments for 7 years, until she finally opened her brick & mortar bakery & cafe in December 2022.
