Drip On Main

As much as I love Starbucks, there's just something about local coffee shops that I can't get over. The cool atmosphere, the local people, the "secret"-ness of it. I love every single part.


One of my favorite local coffee shops is Drip. There are two locations in Columbia: one on Main Street and the other in Five Points (this is the main location). I like to go to the one on Main Street. The location is right across the street from an apartment complex that many of my friends live in, and if I get my coffee to go the South Carolina State House is only a few blocks away!

 

Drip specializes in "pour over" coffee, which basically means that each cup of coffee is unique and made especially for you. Unlike other coffee houses, there's no large pot of coffee waiting!


While coffee is definitely their focus, Drip also serves homemade lemonade along with other drinks. The lemonade is especially delicious on days that reach 100 degrees! Famously Hot Columbia, SC indeed!


Y'all know I can't go anywhere without trying the food... The turkey and brie sandwich from Drip is amazing!! I have tried to re-create it at home many, many times but nothing beats the original!


I've been going to Drip a lot recently just to get out of my house. An iced coffee and some time outside to work on projects is just what I need to get my head back in the game.

Do you drink at local coffee shops? What's your favorite?

  2. I'm also a fan of local coffee shops! A sorority sister of mine is moving to Columbia for an internship this fall so I'll have to mention this cute spot to her. :-)

  3. I agree! I love visiting local coffee places. It's such a different and intimate way to explore a new city. Plus, Starbucks isn't consistent everywhere you go. Drip sounds amazing! I'm an SC girl, but I've still never visited the capital.

  4. I live for small coffee houses. I much prefer them to the big chains, the stronger just made coffee and the atmosphere and of course the food. I go to one almost everyday!
