The Greenville News named Coffee & Crema the Best Coffee Shop in 2010. While there aren't many reviews for the Haywood Mall location, eight Yelpers award the Forest Park Shopping Center location an average of 4.5-stars, and three Google Mappers give it a five-star average:
If tea was a person, she'd welcome you in, wrap you in a blanket, and invite you to sit by the fire. The staff at Tealoha know how comforting tea can be, and so created a space where guests are invited to lounge. Customers order their drinks—whether they be hot and blended with steamed milk, cold and stirred with fruit juice, or simply straight up—at a reclaimed-wood counter, with the bark still clinging to the edges. Then they unwind in comfortable chairs set atop a glossy stained-concrete floor, perhaps sharing bites of a fresh, hot panini as they use the wireless Internet to look up how to say, I love tea, in all of the Romance languages.
Whether stopping in for fresh-baked scones and bread, ordering organic coffee, or perusing the fresh produce, guests at Swamp Rabbit Cafe and Grocery, which is located along the Swamp Rabbit Bike Trail, are assured that the majority of the food is locally grown and produced. The staff prepares espresso drinks with local dairy and assembles boxes of seasonal produce for its grocery-store patrons. The grocery also carries raw cow and goat milk, local honey, and locally crafted chocolate. Swamp Rabbit continues its eco-friendly mission by hosting seasonal art markets, as well as an outdoor music series where donations go to community gardens.
