Things to do on Daufuskie Island

Stay Cozy With School Grounds Coffee

Photo Dec 09, 12 46 09 PMNestled on a dirt road, in the old school kitchen sits Daufuskie’s newest gem, School Grounds Coffee.

This quaint coffee shop is quite an island treat. Located at Maryfields School on School Road, the coffee shop reflects the history of Daufuskie. Photos and articles of days past give patrons an idea of what the space once was.

Pam and Brian Cobb opened School Grounds Coffee in early November. The Cobbs first came to Daufuskie Island in March of 2016. Escaping from Raleigh for a relaxing vacation, Pam and Brian fell in love with the island. Mrs. Pat, Photo Dec 19, 10 22 11 AMof Daufuskie Island Community Farm, knew right away they were destined to live on Daufuskie. She even accurately predicted that they would move in across the street.

The Cobbs, partnering with Leanne Coulter and Photo Dec 08, 1 48 56 PMRhonda Davis, have created the perfect cafe atmosphere. Walking in brings you back to days of handwriting practice and read alouds. This warm and inviting space calls you to sit and visit with island locals and visitors. Their menu boasts dIMG-0187elicious espresso drinks made with fair trade, single origin, 100% arabica beans, an assortment of teas, and rich, creamy hot chocolate.

Pam and Brian have big plans for School Grounds Coffee. They intend to get the kitchen DHEC approved. And if you have ever had one of Pam’s cakes or treats, you’ll understand our excitement in this endeavor. They also hope to build on a porch. With mild winters and sunny summers, an outdoor venue is the perfect spot to enjoy a relaxing morning.

So stop by Maryfields School for a tasty beverage and some warm conversation.
