The Road to Bliss Is Paved With Coffee in Myrtle Beach

Is your perception that everyone on the Grand Strand is drinking microbrews only? You’re only half right.


Myrtle Beach has a nifty independent coffee community there, too. It’s a “perk” of being on the Grand Strand. This coffee trail will take you to some of the most popular spots in town for a cup of java.


Start early, and make one or two cups of decaf!


Sometimes, you want your java in your pajamas. A Starbucks on-site at Bay View Resort is just the thing.


WHAT’S GOOD: Caramel Ribbon Crunch Frappuccino and the like are the norms. Order an iced coffee for a warm morning. Customer service is top-notch here. The closest coffee stop might be closer than you think!


TRY THIS: Teavana® London Fog Tea Latte. Get the bright, citrusy boost with Italian bergamot mixes. It’s a frothy version of the traditional Earl Grey.

Croissants Bistro & Bakery

There’s a lot more deliciousness brewing than just coffee!


WHAT’S GOOD: Breakfast and brunch! There are so many delicious items in this family-oriented restaurant, including an outstanding quiche. Pack up some pastries from here for the ride home, no matter how long or short.


TRY THIS: The Two Eggs to Order comes with a fresh-baked croissant (their specialty). Plus, grits or cheesy hash browns.

Boardwalk Coffee House

Coffee. The boardwalk. What’s not to love?


WHAT’S GOOD: Try remote work with a twist. Bring your laptop to the Boardwalk for excellent service and phenomenal coffee. They bring a subtle-but-present Christian vibe and a staff that will welcome you.


TRY THIS: The Royal Moose Frappe is top-of-the-list, but if you’re looking for something a touch less sweet, try the latte.

Fresh Brewed Coffee House

Get your quota of local music and global coffee right here.


WHAT’S GOOD: The atmosphere is comfortable and pleasant. Open mic Thursdays are an incredible experience: top talent, original songs, and a friendly crowd. You can buy art from local artists, too. Stop by here, for sure.


TRY THIS: The caramel latte. Baristas here are of expert level. It’s such a welcoming place that you’ll want to stick around for a while.

Beach Dreams Market

Come for coffee. Leave with personal care products made from scratch.


WHAT’S GOOD: It’s home to your inner hippie. Add to it skilled baristas and a crowd of new friends, and you’ve got a new beach hangout. The personal care items they carry are handmade by their staff and owner.


TRY THIS: The Feature Coffee, a different in-house roast every day. The Chai Tea Latte is an unforgettable non-coffee drink to try. Add an apple turnover!

Cafe Gelato

It’s a great feel-at-home place while you’re on vacation.


WHAT’S GOOD: Service and efficiency. Even if you go for breakfast or lunch, you have to check out the desserts. Ice cream is made fresh daily in-house. It’s an adorable stop, with Sinatra overhead and yummy food.


TRY THIS: A croissant (heavenly) and a frappe. Enjoy your treats outside, and take a muffin or two to share. And of course, gelato!

Brown Fox Coffee Company

Spread the word: there’s an excellent coffee stand in Murrells Inlet you’ve got to stop by.


WHAT’S GOOD: The coffee, of course, but the view of the inlet and the friendly folks make for the most pleasant experience. Grab a cup of mocha and watch the goats on goat island. You’ll find yourself here again and again.


TRY THIS: A simple cup of dark roast is so flavorful, you’ll enjoy every sip. It can turn non-coffee drinkers into believers!
