The Pharmacy Coffee
Breathing new life into the historic Montgomery building, Pharmacy is one of the most aesthetically gifted coffee shops in Spartanburg, given its decadent art deco design elements, chic furnishings, patterned tile floors, cool blue tones, gold accents, touches of greenery, metallic light fixtures, and tantalizing aroma of java that’s been diligently roasted in-house. The attention to detail that has gone into designing this picturesque abode with a delightful balance of old-world charm and modern utility makes it an easy go-to for daytime meetings with colleagues, long overdue coffee dates, and solo study sessions.
Little River Coffee Bar
Located on the ground floor of downtown’s historic Masonic Temple building – a site built in 1927 – Little River Coffee Bar offers guests a relaxed yet refined atmosphere underscored by wooden tabletops, art-adorned walls, the occasional open mic, and a book shop next-door should you desire to peruse through row upon row of literary inspiration. Complementing traditional espresso drinks made utilizing locally roasted beans, the menu features nutritious smoothies and fresh baked goods.
Spill the Beans
