Fonville Press

Fonville Press is the town café, newsstand, bookshop, wine bar, and so much more in the heart of Alys Beach. It is the place people come in the morning for a fresh cup of Joe or latte, to read the newspaper and get the skinny on happenings around town. It is the place to come mid-day for an ice cream or soda and browse the book and magazine titles for an interesting read. It’s the lively gathering spot at the end of the day where many go to enjoy time with friends and neighbors while enjoying a cold beer or fine wine.

Seasonal wine tastings draw a friendly mix of wine-loving Alys Beach residents, South Walton locals, and visitors to the café. Listen to live music during wine tastings and special events throughout the year.

The friendly gathering place has become a spot that draws people in to linger. Inside, guests enjoy the intimate space surrounded by shelves of books. Outside in the Fonville Courtyard you can happily relax amid fountains, shady trellises and awnings.

To feed the body and mind, Fonville Press offers breakfast, coffee, espresso, books and magazines, newspapers, and pastries as well as imported and domestic wine and beer.

Fonville Press is located on Scenic Hwy 30A in Alys Beach and is open 7 days a week from 7 a.m. – 7 p.m. Follow Fonville Press on Facebook for updates on wine tastings, music and other coffee or town news.


Nestled on a slice of pristine coastal landscape along the Gulf of Mexico, Alys Beach is a unique urban project that blends new city planning with old-world charm. Its striking architecture, elegant settings and natural landscapes make it tempting to stop and explore on your way down the east end of Scenic 30A. It is a close knit community with small shops and restaurants lining pedestrian streets, making it a great place to stroll or enjoy a bike ride. Both the Caribbean-style architecture and quiet neighborhoods contribute to Alys Beach’s easy pace and relaxed mood. Yet its design is a modern approach to community planning, balancing efficiency with sustainability. The area is full of green spaces, nature preserves, gardens and parks that not only accent the town’s quaintness, but preserve the area’s natural environment.
