You might be distracted by the unmistakable aroma of fresh coffee and the familiar coffeehouse chalkboard, filled with all kinds of iced and hot drinks, frappes, teas and specialty drinks. Or, depending on the hour, by the food – scones, pastries and Conecuh sausage pigs-in-a-blanket in the mornings, or loaded baked potatoes, salads, tacos and nachos around lunchtime.

But did you notice the bars on the jail cells? Yep. You’re in the old jail in Jackson, Alabama, given a new post-incarceration life as Bigbee Coffee Roasters.

The restaurant/coffeehouse gets a number of visitors who’ve heard of its storied past (a famous music group spent a little unintended time there – see below), but most patrons are local folks eager for a caffeine jolt, some tasty eats and personal service.
