Wake up and smell the coffee! There’s nothing like a good cup of joe to get you going in the morning or for an afternoon pick-me-up. Where’s the best place on Hilton Head Island to grab a cup of your favorite caffeine-laden beverage? We know of a place or two.

Watusi Cafe

Watusi Café has an impressive coffee bar with cappuccinos, espressos, and of course, traditional coffee. They also serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Bring along your pooch pal, and they can get a bite to eat on the patio from the dog menu! But bear in mind this place sometimes has a waitlist, so plan accordingly.

Hilton Head Social Bakery

This spot is a bakery, first and foremost, with the most tantalizing offerings, and they make everything from scratch! From freshly baked bread, croissants, tarts, and yes… coffee! Just walking by Hilton Head Social Bakery place must smell like heaven.

Corner Perk Brunch and Cafe

Here, a large variety of breakfast and lunch options pair well with some of the best coffee, iced coffee, and tea around! Locals are known to call Corner Perk Brunch and Cafe a home away from home.

ViVi Bubble Tea

Maybe coffee isn’t your style, or perhaps it’s just too hot to fathom, slurping down a hot cup of java. Bubble tea has been gaining popularity in recent years and has bubbled up on the island. (See what we did there?) One such venue is ViVi Bubble Tea, which specializes in this fun, inventive drink, or you can try Bubble Berry. They make excellent coffees and smoothies, as well as bubble teas.

The Lowcountry is undoubtedly the place to be for all your vacation needs. Relax, shop, eat, play, and stay on Hilton Head Island and let us “perk” you up!
