School Grounds Coffee Shop
Treat yourself. You’ll never find better coffee than what you’ll find at the School Grounds Coffee Shop.
Brian and Pam are coffee aficionados and they bring their passion for coffee to their creative brewing process. Their daily coffee menu, which also includes fruit- ilicious creations, is often enhanced with a “designer” coffee – a specialty of the day that you might wish were an every-day offering.
But what’s coffee without ambience? Pam and Brian add their own charm. They will entertain you with their stories of Daufuskie history, about the writing of ‘The Water is Wide’ and about what’s hot and what’s not on Daufuskie. The School Ground Coffee Shop has raised the bar for coffee boutiques. Take notice, Starbucks.
Closed Sundays and Mondays.
