Comforting atmosphere

The food is very tasty and reasonably priced, the cafe-esque atmosphere is comfortable and the coffee is awesome.

I just have to say that I was very disappointed when my daughter and I went to what we thought was the Tipsy Teapot restaurant yesterday. We always enjoyed the Tipsy Teapot because it was a small bit of uniqueness in the monotony that is "Uptown" Greenville. Now.....it is Crave and it is just like every other restaurant that we...

The food was pretty good but the tea did not have a lot of flavor, it tasted more like plain warm water with a hint of tea. There is no gluten free option even though Urban Spoon says they do. The atmosphere was cool though and it seemed like a good place to do work and study.

Loved the special Valentine's Day dinner. One vegetarian, one celiac, and two picky senior were all more than satisfied with the presentation, execution and flavor of the food. Service was very slow but also very attentive and accommodating. This is something easily remedied in the future by modifying their reservations. The readily admitted that all reservations for the event were... More

Tipsy Teapot is definitely different! A small restaurant in the middle of a used bookstore. I went there to try something different. What strikes me the most is that it seems to try too hard to be "that quirky, hip spot for college students and profs." The food was okay, but higher priced than other local places for similar items.... More

Heard its under new ownership and the night we went it was the first time the guy was making our food. It was great!. Books all over all... More

So nice to get to see some comedy in this city. I'm really shocked there is no comedy club in this city. But this place was fun. Nice little hipster coffee shop setting. The host was good and the acts were short and to the point. We will definitely return.

Tipsy has been central to an emerging alternative, local culture in Greenville. The food is good and priced well. Casual atmosphere, cosmopolitan vibe, live music.

So I have lived in Greenville for almost a year, and I have never been to this place before. I had been to the Indian place next door several times, but walked right by the Tipsy Teapot. I loved the atmosphere. The place is huge, and right downtown. The space isn't filled with efficiently placed tables, it's filled with shelves... More

Went here for lunch today. They had a sign that said "We're still open" so the review that said it was closing at the end of December is not accurate (that was right back then but things have changed). Tipsy Teapot has a wonderful menu of vegetarian and healthy choices which are sorely lacking in Greenville. I had a mushroom... More
