Meet Columbia’s newest coffee shop, The Front Coffee and Tap!
The Front Coffee and Tap, named for its location along the Congaree River, opened May 11, 2020 in the Canalside community in Columbia. The new spot serves coffee, tea, beer, and wine, as well as locally sourced pastries from Ally & Eloise Bakeshop and Primal Gourmet to-go meals.
Opened by a recent USC graduate, Sean Powers, who hopes to donate a portion of sales to the beautification of the Columbia river district. Powers aspires to create a community beyond being a coffee shop or a tap room.
With the community in mind, The Front only serves Carolina brews. The Fronts’ coffee is brewed from North Carolina-based Counter Culture Coffee. As for June 2020, they serve Steel Hands Brewing, Columbia Craft, and Wicked Week on tap. The Front offers $1 off beer and wine for happy hour from 5:00 to 6:30 pm Monday through Thursday!
Visit The Front Coffee and Tap for a morning coffee, an afternoon pick-me-up, or and evening drink!
The Front Coffee and Tap is located at 622 Canalside Street in Columbia open 6:30 AM to 10:00 PM Monday through Saturday and 8:30 AM to 8:30 PM on Sundays. Visit the shop’s website here!
