What an awesome place! Grab a delicious coffee, gelato, or dessert and eat in their cozy environment or step 100 yards out back and enjoy it on a swing at the waterfront. One of our favorite places to frequent!

We stopped in for breakfast on Sunday morning. There were 10 people on line, including family of 5, and one woman working very hard by herself to take care of everything. Beautiful gelato display, baked goods, but breakfast was a reheat. Egg and cheese, with...More

David I'm very sorry to hear about your experience with us! We take every review very seriously. The biscuits definitely shouldn't have been that cold.

Can't beat the view sitting outside at one of many tables, looking at the river. They have great breakfast items and many sweet treats, drinks and iced tea. They have gelato, also. Great place!

My husband and I love to go out for coffee. We are visiting SC for our son's Marine Crops Graduation, so we are unfamiliar with the area. After trying two other coffee shops, we found this one after talking to a local seafood market employee....More

I am thrilled we stumbled across this place. The staff was exceptional. The gelato was fantastic. The coffee put any chain (including Starbucks) to shame. The feeling and comfort of the place is what every coffee house should be. The local art on the wall...More

Stopped in for coffee after lunch at a nearby restaurant and wished I had just eaten lunch here instead. This "coffee shop" has a really impressive variety of sandwiches, quiches, and breads/pastries in addition to coffee drinks. And gelato! Other folks at our B&B said...More

I don't believe they do....and not necessary. Very casual; just order at the counter and help yourself to seating inside, on porch. or in the Riverfront Park.
