Home » Dining » Fonville Press


Fonville Press is the town café, newsstand, bookshop, wine bar, and so much more. It is the place people come in the morning for a fresh cup of Joe or a latte, to read the newspaper and get the skinny on happenings around town. It is the place to come mid-day for a cold beverage, lunch or a snack 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 town.

The friendly gathering place has become a spot that draws people in to linger. Inside, guests enjoy the refined atmosphere and photographic tribute to the shop’s namesake, John Fonville, a dear friend of Alys Beach’s founding family.  Outside in the Fonville Courtyard, guest happily relax amid fountains, shady wood trellises, and bamboo awnings.

With the recent kitchen expansion and café renovation, Fonville Press added even more to its menu selection. The new menu features creative breakfast and lunch options, and a dinner menu will be introduced in the coming months. Adults will enjoy the wine garden while children explore the captivating new playground. Whether by food or drink, conversation or concert series, there is something for everyone all day long. We invite you to experience the sights and sounds of Fonville Press and Park.
