My wife and I enjoy checking out new coffee houses and the Southern Grind just fit the bill on a recent trip to Orange Beach, AL.
We noticed the shop early last year on a trip to Pensacola, FL and the Gulf Shores, AL area.
The Grind is located at a commercial complex called the Wharf. Time constraints on our earlier trip didn’t allow for visiting the coffee house.
But on our recent trip over that way a couple weeks ago, we worked a visit into our schedule.
During the earlier trip we were motoring around the area at night and the complex stood out in a surreal sort of way. We just had to return.
The Wharf is located just east of where the Foley Beach Express bridge crosses the intracoastal waterway.
This visit was on a Saturday afternoon. The skies were clear, the wind cool and the day was beautiful.
And the Southern Grind turned out to be a great stop on our day trip.
As usual my wife had hot tea and I ordered a vanilla latte, both which were very enjoyable.
The business, in addition to the coffee shop, also offers home decor, art and gifts.
There is also a second location at the Hotel Indigo on the beach highway in Gulf Shores.
