Right in the middle of this thriving commercial district of Travelers Rest. The atmosphere is very cozy. Great place to read and chat. The coffee is GREAT! Cakes and muffins too.

We were sight seeing and found this coffee shop. The employees were very helpful finding the right coffee for my husband and I. He likes dark and heavy. I like medium. They had 6 flavors made. Both of ours were very good. We also had a dessert. Yummy. There are tables outside also. Inside there are couches, chairs, tables. Very... More

The coffee is fantastic! Starbucks can't hold a candle to the quality of Leopard Forest coffee. The story of the coffee house is worth hearing, as well, and the service is friendly.

I have seen this The Forest with hands and locations a few times over the past 10 years. I believe it is better now than ever before. They have perfected the menu that best serves the customers and their coffee is wonderful. I mentioned last year that they didn't have sleeves and that was willing to endure the heat just... More

We LOVE this place!!! We come once a year to visit family and love this place so much that we order coffee from the Leopard Forest which fresh roasts the coffee for this coffee shop and people who order from them. This year we tried the new one they have from Nicaragua. We bought a bag to take home. You... More

I stopped in at the Forest Coffeehouse a few weeks ago for a coffee. I just wanted a nice dark roast ( I take it black) and they obliged. In fact it was if not the best certainly one of the very best cups of coffee I have had in nearly four years in Greenville. I wasn't really hungry, but... More

Have tried this place a couple of times and always have to wait forever just to get lattes. The staff is quite young and they don't seem to know what they are doing. Went recently and waited a half hour for 2 lattes (both were the same type). Also, it could be cleaner.

The place we wanted to eat breakfast was packed so we thought we would try this place. It's attractive inside but didn't offer much in the way of breakfast or anything to ready for that matter. Only bagels and some muffins. Not much variety. But they have every kind of coffee you can imagine, also sell novel coffee mugs. This... More

We had vanilla latte and scones. The latte was very good but the scone was marginal. It was not very fresh. It would have been good I think if it had been fresh.

Unbelievable. Only went here because the rest of the entire town was closed down on a Monday. Next time I'd rather do without food altogether. From my 16 year old: Oh, yes the food was good. It was the best expensive miniature ham sandwich I've ever had. It's about the size of an iPhone 6+! No wait, that's too big.... More
