I have had numerous visits to Southern Brews and always happy I went. The "Southern" part of it is the interaction you will have with the staff-amazing how much Southern hospitality can come through a serving window! Coffee is good, sandwiches have proven to be just the thing when I don't have time for lunch and when the weather's nice... More

Spent the weekend on John's Island at a local "AirBnB". I am a confessed coffee snob (I need to go to addict meetings). I was a little worried about finding decent coffee and tried Southern Brews on the hopes it would be at least better than gas station quality. I was absolutely blown away with the flavor. Probably the best... More

The only other place to get coffee in the area other than a restaurant or a gas station is this coffee house. The specialty coffees are really good, some are really sweet. They also serve food and have a drive thru and walk up window.

So glad to have a local, small business like this on Johns Island. I try to go here instead of *$s whenever I can. Good coffee, very nice staff/owners. A little pricey, but in line with other good quality coffee places.

So this is a drive up only coffee place. I do enjoy the coffee shops where you can sit down. They do have some outside seating but not quite the same. I had the local pecan coffee. It was really good. Nice flavor. The staff was super nice and friendly which is always a plus. If I am back in... More

I have gotten coffee here twice and it was DELISH both times. Sweetest girls ever are working in there. On my first trip I was really new to John's Island and the girls answered a barrage of questions from me with no sideways glances. I love seeing Southern Brews on the corner instead of Starbucks, too! GREAT PLACE!

Awesome!!! Coffee is great and employees are friendly. Both the breakfast sandwiches and the lunch sandwiches are great and always fresh. Everything is very reasonably priced. Highly recommend southern brews for coffee or lunch or both!!

I love going to Southern Brews Coffee! I have never been disappointed with anything I have ordered, but I must say, I favor their hot white chocolate mocha! Southern Brews is a small, local business, with sensible prices, delicious, healthy food, and amazingly delicious chocolate covered coffee beans!! The staff is very sincere and they all truly care about the... More

The coffee is average, have had the coffee and lattes there. Would be visiting Starbucks if I had the choice when visiting area. Was given a flavored coffee when I requested regular and did not realize this until down the road...returned to store...on return remembered a reward card I had been given on previous visit, you would have thought for...

As a coffee lover, this REALLY hits the spot. It doesn't hurt that this place support local small businesses by selling their products (along with the fact that it is a small business as well!). Trying the Spiced Cinnamon Latte - WAY better than Starbuck cinnamon Dulce. It somehow tastes so much richer and fuller-bodied. TRY IT!
