I typically only partake of the ice cream, but there are lots of drinks and smoothies to choose from as well. You feel like you're getting a TINY amount of ice cream, but somehow it still satisfies. Delicious, and fully customizable. Love the warm, cozy, pub-like inside; love the patio seating outside too. Great place to go to be alone... More

Love their coffee! You don't have to pay extra to make it strong; it's already strong! Great ice cream, shakes, yogurt, and bagels! Great kick-back atmosphere. Definitely a better spot than its competitor.

While visiting the downtown area of Greenville, SC. We came across a beautiful park(You can read about it my "Falls Park on The Reedy" review here ) In this beautiful scenery we saw the nice little coffee/snack shop called "Spill The Beans". Imagine Starbucks with a more local feel. We were greeted by a line as soon we walked in... More

This is our favorite place to stop by to pick up a coffee or ice cream before or after we go to Falls Park, you love their prices and the convenience of it being right at Falls Park.

On a recent trip to Greenville, while visiting Falls Park I stopped into Spill the Beans because I had heard good things about their ice cream. The things I heard were correct! It is a spacious coffee shop with a great feel that overlooks the bridge and Falls Park. Their ice cream is mixed on site in their very cool... More

From the outside, one might think this is just a little cafe right on the edge of Falls Park. But once inside, you find there's a large room behind the main space, suitable and comfortable for bringing your laptop and getting a little work done, or sitting with a good book and a latte. Ice cream here is very good... More

My son found this place when he took a trip to Greenville SC. He told me that I had to try it. It was really good coffee. I know that there are coffee places everywhere and people are fiercely loyal to their brands but the coffee is worth a try. My husband got a plain Cup of Joe and he... More

Been coming here for years. A local favorite for anyone with a sweet tooth. You can watch them make the ice-cream cones from scratch in the store. A great place to kick back and relax, they have several comfortable chairs. It is also a great place to study or read a book.
