Tony’s Off Third is a wine and pastry shop – and more – in the historic Third Street South village of Old Naples. At Tony’s, owners Tony Ridgway, executive chef of the adjacent Ridgway Bar & Grill, and Sukie Honeycutt, wine expert and operations manager, offer specialty foods and wines to retail customers who expect the best.
The shop has been open for more than 20 years, and has earned kudos by many critics as well as being called “one of the best, if not the best wine shop in the country,” according to Florida Trend.
The wine collection is managed by Sukie, known for her impeccable palate and connections with winemakers. She counsels customers whose cellars are among the country’s finest, yet is equally delighted to introduce the infrequent wine drinker to a special vintage for evening's dinner. Sukie’s specialty is small-production California wines that in some cases are found only in Tony’s Off Third. She and her wine manager are on site to help guide wine lovers in their choices.
Pastry is an equally important facet of Tony’s Off Third. The shop has won numerous awards for its desserts and cakes, and is one of Naples’ leading bakeries. Under the personal direction of Tony, whose first passion is baking (he made his first apple pie at eight!), the bakery continues to deliver the optimum flavor in every baked treat.
The store also serves several non-alcoholic drinks including freshly brewed, hot and cold coffee and tea creations.
