The Village of West Greenville, located on Pendleton Street, is a perfect example of bustling small business in our city. The shops that span the street include a burrito shop, a plant store, clothing stores, a jewelry store, restaurants, and a cozy coffee shop. I set out to review the coffee shop, called The Village Grind and was delighted at every turn.

I had been to the old location of The Village Grind a few times. The old storefront was connected by a large doorway to Golden Brown & Delicious, a local restaurant that serves casual American food. The connectedness of the space led to confusion by customers, many wondering if the businesses were one in the same. The businesses were, and still are, very different places of commerce and the move proves that. Lindsey Montgomery, the owner of The Village Grind (and sister of the GB&D owner), said that she moved to allow the expansion of her business, according to Upstate Business Journal. The new space is conveniently located across the street at 1256D Pendleton St.

When I first laid eyes on the new space, I was captivated by the prominent skylight, which projects almost heavenly beams of light on the bar. Plants hung from the ceiling, above the employees, sealing the deal for me. Antique-looking mirrors lined the walls and deep greens and pinks were carried throughout the space with wallpaper, paint, and furnishings. Senior Kelly Kiser, who accompanied me to The Village Grind, commented: “It had the coolest atmosphere. It was super chill but so inviting… It had a rustic feel with the coolest hanging flower pots and the coziest furniture and bookshelves!”

There were so many people in line and sitting in the coffee shop. Kelly and I did not mind the wait, though, because it was the kind of place that we could spend hours in just looking around. My coffee order was an iced vanilla latté with almond milk. It was expertly crafted and served with a smile. To accompany my drink, I had a delicious donut with sprinkles. We sat by the entrance and saw so many people come and go. With such great service and refreshments, I have no doubt that The Village Grind will be prosperous for years to come.
