Just a great coffee shop in a delightful seaside town. If you are touring in S Carolina this is well worth a diversion. Beautiful setting.

Thank you so much for your input. We are very happy to hear you enjoyed our food. In your opinion what should our frozen coffee have added? We take all our reviews very seriously and are currently working on this problem dealing with the staff.

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.
