My son found this place when he took a trip to Greenville SC. He told me that I had to try it. It was really good coffee. I know that there are coffee places everywhere and people are fiercely loyal to their brands but the coffee is worth a try. My husband got a plain Cup of Joe and he... More

Been coming here for years. A local favorite for anyone with a sweet tooth. You can watch them make the ice-cream cones from scratch in the store. A great place to kick back and relax, they have several comfortable chairs. It is also a great place to study or read a book.

Spill the Beans is a great place to enjoy a dessert after wandering through Falls Park or attending an event at the Peace Center. My grandchildren love all of the ice cream options!

Stopped in for an iced tea---coffees and ice creams are their specialties so had coffee. It was good; a little stronger than I like, but I am no connoisseur. We enjoyed it at one of their tables with scenery of the park.

Seems to be run by a bunch of college kids. Didn't really care if you questioned that the coffee wasn't what you ordered! Tables dirty. Place could use an update.

My second visit was a quickie to grab a Latte on the fly. Prior visit included ice cream for a private event. Atmosphere has a hip vibe, love the coffee, and recommend their ice cream!
