Great for date night with the one you love. Go in for a cup of coffee or ice cream. There are many choices for creating the perfect tasting ice cream!

I had coffee and oatmeal at this charming place. I got the best seat in the house because it was early and there were few of us. I looked out over the falls with a million dollar view. The coffee and oatmeal were only about $3.50 and that included generous fruit and nuts. The server was very courteous.I can't wait... More

I typically only partake of the ice cream, but there are lots of drinks and smoothies to choose from as well. You feel like you're getting a TINY amount of ice cream, but somehow it still satisfies. Delicious, and fully customizable. Love the warm, cozy, pub-like inside; love the patio seating outside too. Great place to go to be alone... More

Love their coffee! You don't have to pay extra to make it strong; it's already strong! Great ice cream, shakes, yogurt, and bagels! Great kick-back atmosphere. Definitely a better spot than its competitor.

While visiting the downtown area of Greenville, SC. We came across a beautiful park(You can read about it my "Falls Park on The Reedy" review here ) In this beautiful scenery we saw the nice little coffee/snack shop called "Spill The Beans". Imagine Starbucks with a more local feel. We were greeted by a line as soon we walked in... More

This is our favorite place to stop by to pick up a coffee or ice cream before or after we go to Falls Park, you love their prices and the convenience of it being right at Falls Park.

On a recent trip to Greenville, while visiting Falls Park I stopped into Spill the Beans because I had heard good things about their ice cream. The things I heard were correct! It is a spacious coffee shop with a great feel that overlooks the bridge and Falls Park. Their ice cream is mixed on site in their very cool... More

From the outside, one might think this is just a little cafe right on the edge of Falls Park. But once inside, you find there's a large room behind the main space, suitable and comfortable for bringing your laptop and getting a little work done, or sitting with a good book and a latte. Ice cream here is very good... More
