Vacationing is fun because you get to embrace a new city or town, and really get to know how the locals live their lives day-to-day.

Our Favorite Coffee Shops & Cafes on the Island

Some people are the kinds that wake up, brew a pot of hot coffee, eat a slice of toast, and start their day. But there’s also the kind of person who loves to head over to a quant little cafe, sip on a latte, and savor over a chocolate croissant or quiche with a friend for a few hours to start their day. This post is for the second person. For the “coffee and toast at home” people, don’t worry– all of our vacation rental properties come with fully equipped kitchens, so your daily routine won’t be harmed in the slightest. These are our top Hilton Head Island and Bluffton Area cafe’s and coffee shops!

This is a new spot on the Island set in the “old log cabin” on 278!

From pour over coffee, to espresso, and nitro cold brew, your coffee concoctions are all here. This is a fun little joint perfect for a low-key morning or afternoon pick me up.
