Kemp's Kitchen & Bakery is a casual restaurant serving hot breakfasts, lunch and dinners "meat and three" specials, as well as sandwiches and burgers and chicken wings.

The business opened in 2018 at the Trussville Plaza shopping center at 1423 Gadsden Highway in Trussville. In July 2020 it moved to a former Hardee's location at 111 South Chalkville Road near the Trussville Entertainment District.

In 2021 Kemp's opened new locations in the former Sol's Sandwich Shop in the Two North Twentieth building in Downtown Birmingham, and in a former Emma’s Southern Cuisine on Odum Road in Gardendale.

Kemp's also offers event catering, custom cake-baking services, and take-home "fit meals".

On November 29, 2021 the Trussville location caught fire and the building was completely destroyed. According to the fire marshal, the fire was caused by a faulty charger wire going to an electronic device.

Owner Brian Kemp stated all Trussville employees would be relocated to the Gardendale location and that the restaurant's food truck would be set up to serve Trussville customers after the fire.

In December 2022 Kemp's Kitchen returned to Trussville, joining Golden Rule Bar-B-Q in their former location across the street at 120 South Chalkville Road.
