It’s the Yeppoon business on Normanby Street that is laced with great history and local memories, and now, it’s about to become one of the hottest hangouts in town.
Catering to the dine in and on the go customer, effortlessly transitioning from morning to night, week to weekend, coffee to cocktail, The Alley is here to help turn little moments into the fondest memories.
The Alley officially opened on Monday 30th May, and the Capricorn Coast community was invited to head on down and wet the head of our town’s newest watering hole.
After permanently closing its doors as Pie Alley Blues earlier this year, Kombi Keg Capricorn owners Ben and Leah Crowley were quick to snap up the keys to this iconic landmark, excitedly bringing their own touches and flair to meet the town’s social scene needs.
With a new lick of paint, extended dining areas and whole new rebrand, The Alley is about to bring vibrancy and life back to Yeppoon’s popular retail strip.
“The Alley is bursting with passion, creativity, and warmth,” Ben said. “We cannot wait to share our ideas and energy for this fabulous place with the public.”
“The local community has already been a massive support with our other gig, Kombi Keg and now we look forward to sharing more of our hospitality and tourism passion to deliver a great product that Yeppoon is proud of.”
“Our goal is to collaborate and network with surrounding businesses and ensure that as a unit, we provide a collectively exceptional experience, enticing more visitors that can’t wait to return to our coastal paradise,” Ben said.
Historically once home to a meat pie and apple turnover, The Alley will be serving up breakfast, lunch, and dinner seven days a week, topped off with barrister-made coffee and broad range of liquor to suit any occasion.
Responsible for the menu, Leah has committed to featuring plenty of homegrown produce within her offerings, celebrating local flavours and supporting our Capricorn Coast farmers.
“Serving fresh produce straight from our farms is a major draw card for any restaurant in this day and age,” Leah said.
“Yeppoon, together with the villages nearby have decades of agricultural history and merit and we are so fortunate to have such a large variety of seasonal produce right on our doorstep.”
“I can’t wait to inject the pride of our local growers onto plates,” Leah said.
Capricorn Enterprise CEO, Mary Carroll believes that the resurrection of The Alley will further enhance Yeppoon and complement existing businesses within the town.
“More and more people are choosing to live, work and play on the Capricorn Coast, and as such it’s one of Queensland’s fastest growing areas outside the southeast corner and the enviable destination of choice for more than 120,000 residents,” Mary said.
“Ben and Leah have worked tirelessly over the past month to bring these four walls back to life for locals and visitors, and we certainly look forward to giving cheers to the new vibrant atmosphere,” Mary said.
