Bridge in Greenville

Greenville, South Carolina, is a big little town. Tucked in the folds of the Blue Ridge Mountains and at times overshadowed by Asheville to its north, Greenville has been quietly gaining momentum as a Southern food town worth knowing. And now, it’s time to pay attention. The Upstate city, long a destination for cyclers, hikers, kayakers, and the like thanks to its abundance of natural attractions, is now home to an impressive roster of restaurants, breweries, and bars. In this beautiful city, you must pay homage to the scenery. Stroll down Main Street, where old trees and foliage cover the roads and lead the way to local shops and foodie spots. For the first meal of the day, stop by Methodical Coffee for a latte and stroopwafel or Biscuit Head for a hearty biscuit smothered in gravy. For lunch, stop by OJ’s Diner during the workweek for some local flavor or Sidewall Pizza for some delicious dough and cheese. Some mouthwatering flavor at dinnertime is found at Kitchen Sync and The Anchorage. Make sure not to overlook this small town and be sure to try all the food they have to offer.
