Shopping & Dining
Montevallo’s downtown area is a popular attraction not only for its many shops, services and restaurants, but also for its pedestrian friendly sidewalks, which have retained much of the town’s history and authenticity.
Among the favorite Main Street businesses is Eclipse Coffee & Books, a charming snack shop where one can enjoy a good book accompanied by a delightful snack, either inside or on the quaint outdoor porch. Another landmark is Serendipity, located in a 100-year old building in the heart of the historic downtown area, where one can find many gift items, antiques and books.
The downtown area also features the Montevallo Antique and Treasure Trail, which consists of a number of shops all in one convenient locale, through which one can peruse endlessly for valuables and other unique arts, crafts and gifts.
The stores on Antique and Treasure Trail include Arledge Antiques & Collectibles, Cedar Creek Antiques, Twice as Nice and Lacey Jewelry and Gifts.
Near Montevallo is the home of Vizzini Farms Winery, which produces a variety of wines, from semi-sweet to desert wines, and also has a gift shop and deli. For more information, visit www.alabamawines.org.
