In between Murrells Inlet and Surfside Beach, there is a small town named Garden City Beach. Garden City Beach is the perfect spot to catch a wave, stroll the pier, and drink a delicious iced coffee while you stick your toes in the sand. For two years, Garden City Coffee Grounds has provided beachgoers with their caffeine rush and a freshly baked pastry.
The cool beach breeze and the crisp salt air are the perfect atmosphere to sit back, relax, and drink your morning coffee. They offer a variety of drinks including their famous Garden City white chocolate mocha with caramel, chai tea, or a classic cappuccino. Enjoy a fresh scone with your drink or choose from their breakfast and lunch menu. You can’t go wrong with a breakfast croissant or chicken salad sandwich.
Located at 117A Atlantic Ave in Garden City it is within walking distance of the pier and the beach. Open from 7:30 am to 4 pm for the summer it is perfect for early birds and catching that afternoon pick me up. If you are in the mood to enjoy breakfast or lunch on the beach, call ahead and pick your order up on the go.
On the walls, you can see how high the water rose during Hurricane Hugo and other storms of the past. Most recently, Hurricane Florence struck in 2018, but a few feet of water will not dampen the spirit of shop owner Matthew Hutton. Moving from Pittsburgh to Garden City was a dream come true for Hutton when he was given the opportunity to open his own coffee shop.
Hutton and his family grew up coming to Garden City and wanted to make life a vacation all year long. “Locals and visitors always come in with a smile on their face and are ready to just enjoy their day,” says Hutton. No drink is off- limits, and they are happy to cater to your taste with fresh gourmet coffee beans. Make sure to visit Garden City Coffee Shop all year long and appreciate your local businesses.
