Seven Places to Grab Coffee in Myrtle Beach

  By  Nora Battle

As a mom of three kids ages 5 and under, I consume my fair share of caffeine. Thankfully, the Myrtle Beach area is home to a number of great coffee shops throughout its 60 miles. I’ve put together a list of some of our favorite places to grab a morning (or afternoon) coffee. 

local's fav Croissants Bistro & Bakery at the Grande Dunes
1. Croissants Bistro & Bakery at the Grande Dunes

Croissants is located at 8014 N Kings Highway, Myrtle Beach, and this spot is especially fun. Not only is it close to my house, it also houses their impressive coffee roaster, used to roast their coffee beans in-house each day. And while you can certainly get your coffee to-go, this cozy American bistro is worth making a full morning of it with an impressive breakfast/brunch menu and delicious pastries.

2. Fresh Brewed Coffee House

This local coffee shop is also located in downtown Myrtle Beach (933 Broadway Street, Myrtle Beach) but tends to be more of a draw for locals. The coffee is great, and the atmosphere quiet and cool. Fresh Brewed Coffee House hosts live music, art shows, open mic nights and other live events throughout the year. For more information on upcoming events, you can check out their website.

3. Beach Dreams Market

For those visiting the north end of the Grand Strand, Beach Dreams Market (817 2nd Avenue North, North Myrtle Beach) is a hidden coffee gem. Their coffee bar offers a large array of locally roasted organic, gourmet and fair trade coffee beans, while they also sell specialty teas, handcrafted soaps, body butters and scrubs. The vibe is breezy and beachy, and it’s a good spot to get a one-of-a-kind souvenir as well. 

local's fav Beach Hippie Coffee
4. Beach Hippie Coffee

Beach Hippie coffee is serving up good brews and good vibes! Featuring many different coffee options, Beach Hippie also offers beach inspired options like the "boogie board latte" and the "crush the tuttle latte". They also offer a large menu of delicious healthy bites, with some treats, including vegan, paleo and keto.  

local's fav Benjamin's Bakery Cafe & Coffee Roaster
5. Benjamin's Bakery Cafe & Coffee Roaster

Benjamin’s has served the Grand Strand for over 20 years, and it’s definitely a favorite with locals and visitors alike. Their location at 810 3rd Avenue S. in Surfside Beach serves up coffee, espresso, bagels, breads, sweets, breakfast and lunch, so plan on coming thirsty AND hungry. The bagels are regularly given rave reviews from sworn bagel aficionados and worth every single carb. 

6. Brown Fox Coffee Co.

Brown Fox Coffee Box is a mobile ‘grab & go’ coffee shop located between Catfish Johnny’s and Creek Ratz (4065 Highway 17 Business, Murrells Inlet) on the beautiful MarshWalk in Murrells Inlet, S.C. This super cute coffee ‘box’ serves up locally roasted coffee, teas, and smoothies, and we love how kid-friendly this coffee shop’s concept is. It’s nice to let the kids run around outside while waiting on our coffee and the views of the scenic marsh can’t be beat.

7. Grand Strand Coffee

Located in The Market Common area in Myrtle Beach, Grand Strand Coffee offers a wide variety of beverage options including speciality coffee, tea, and sodas. It's the perfect spot to stop for a caffeine boost after an afternoon of shopping!
