3. The Alley
The best transition you can find from coffee to cocktail in a split second is in The Alley. It is indeed “an oasis” found in the heart of Yeppoon. This place has got to be on our best bars on the Capricorn Coast list for its laid-back casual vibe, with freshly-made food and delectable booze to match.
Formerly known as “Pie Alley Blues,” The Alley is another local favourite, with its historical building that once housed Yeppoon’s iconic bakery and late-night alley, where owners Ben and Leah Crowley first met. Keeping some of its previous character, The Alley serves breakfast from 6:30 am and transitions into a bar until late, seven days a week.
