Nice stop to relax

Coffee? Beer? Wine? They've got you covered. Even have wine Flights! Great people running it. You can drink AND shop! What a concept!

We've been going to back Alley for a few years now & still love it! I understand that there is a new owner but that has not made a difference whatsoever! We go for coffee and a warm croissant for my mom, it's a perfect walk from our rental and mom can sit and recover at the outdoor tables. They... More

Went in Saturday with my friend and her little boy so they could get something before leaving for the airport. She got a fruit smoothie and a bagel with egg and cheese and I got an almond joy frappe coffee drink. All were very good. We said our goodbyes and I went back in to shop around. Ended up talking...

This was a great stop. We just wanted a quick bite and a glass of wine. My wife has Celiac's and the woman who I believe is the owner deftly accommodated her by adjusting the sandwich-heavy menu to lettuce wraps. They have a wonderful selection of coffees and beer. And the short wine list has wonderful choices that reflect a... More

I was always told the back ally was such a nice little gift store with real good food. They do have a nice gift store. The food not so much. I was waited on by a lady and I believe her name was jane. I ordered a quesadilla with taco meat. It was good until I bit into a piece... More

The photo is old... This cute shop moved across the street closer to Gulf Drive on Bridge St. & an alley. Coffee is great. Unique, local art. Small but worth the stop!

Love this place. Local artwork. Handmade crafts. Good coffee and served hot, hot, hot. U will loose ur taste buds on that first sip if not careful. Worth the wait... Once it cools- it's good stuff!!

This is a nice place to stop shop and have a coffee or a glass of wine. They also have food, but we didn't eat. The shop is filled with knick knacks of all kinds. On Fridays they have some kind of live music. We listened to a really good acoustic musician while we were there. The coffee was good,... More

They had a local musician the night we were there. It was cozy and Sally offered great conversation. Stop by and support a cute local shop.
