Fonville Press

Fonville Press is a relaxed café, bookstore, park, and gathering spot located in Alys Beach along Scenic Highway 30A-the perfect place to read, play, eat and live.

Get your morning cup of coffee and settle in among floor to ceiling dark wood bookshelves to read your favorite magazine or pick up a new book title. In addition to a full coffee and espresso bar, enjoy a full café menu made with fresh local ingredients.

With whimsical takes on familiar dishes, Fonville Press offers breakfast, pressed sandwiches, salads, snacks, and heartier entrées, along with coffee, wine, and beer.

Novelties like the Whistle Stop Café, Fried Green Tomatoes served with House Ranch are best washed down with a cool glass of Rosé. The irresistible Chicken in a Biscuit is Southern breakfast at its finest, complete with bacon-onion jam, cheddar cheese, and Angry Pickles. Lunchtime faves feature leafy salads and handhelds, like the BLT with avocado and Goat Cheese Mayo.

Fonville Press is a lively gathering spot at the end of the day where many go to enjoy time with friends and neighbors while listening to live music as the kids play on the adjacent playground. The doors open up to a covered outdoor oasis and al fresco patio, accented with cozy seating. The adjacent Fonville Park serves as a neighborhood gathering place with a playground, climbing wall, and distinctive serpent sculptures. Check the SoWal live music calendar to see who’s playing.

In addition to the delectable food menu, the café offers Craft Beer on tap, as well as wines by the glass and bottle. For a healthier option, try the Kombucha on tap. The menu also features kids options for Tiny Diners, if you can pry them away from the rock climbing wall.

Fonville Press is located on Scenic Hwy 30A in Alys Beach. The café is open daily from 7 am – 5 pm with the full menu available from 7 am – 3 pm. Grab-and-go food items, such as homemade cookies, cupcakes, and pastries, as well as beverages, are available until close.
