The SC upstate is an intriguing area and whether you are seeking some interesting time by yourself or with a friend, or a small group. Here’s a list maybe you haven’t thought about:
Ride a bike! Easley has a beautiful bike path that runs from downtown Easley to downtown Pickens on a relatively easy smooth bike path. Our beautiful weather is conducive to this paved trail of about 10 miles. Do half the trail and come back or do end-to-end trips with others with parking cars at both ends. Pandora Coffee offers free parking about 2 tenths of a mile from the Easley trailhead with access to the trail just 30 yards from our location. After riding, sit on our deck and enjoy a smooth coffee or one of our many teas from around the world! Organic juice for kids for only 75 cents!
Experiment with teas or gather a small tea party. You have heard of Turmeric tea but have you tried it? Or how about organic Marsala Turmeric? Rooibos with vanilla and almond? Spicy red? Or the newest craze Matcha (or Matcha latte--yum!)? Stop by to our beautiful tea house and experiment with these or others from around the world...
Hike in the mountains. From Easley to Table Rock is a short beautiful drive and an excellent park. Maybe lucky enough to spook a deer or bear (I have on both)! The solitude and breathtaking beauty is only a short drive away!
Build a puzzle at Pandora Coffee. We have several from 24 pieces to 500. Maybe you can finish or just start one. Great for couples to stimulate some time together in a get-to-know-you way!
Play music! We offer the perfect area to self express (i.e. adventurous can just come in and play-we would love that). Or open mike nights in a more structured setting. Our coffee house is an ideal set-up for creative types!
Want to be a hippie? We have a corner just for you! Better yet to bring a guitar, write poetry or just relax and read. See our website for pictures.
Poetry open mike. Blend with music or get friends or interested groups to make an evening of it. We can extend hours for any group open mike--just ask!
Start a group, or Meetup, or social club. We have the perfect space, no charge to you or the group. We just ask you use our beverages (you can bring your own food). Organic coffee plus teas from around the world only $2 a cup. Best prices in the upstate and perfect surroundings designed to stimulate ideas, conversation or just getting to know each other!
Paint a picture! Are you a developing artist, or want to be? We host painting parties, perfect for couples, a date or just surround yourself with others of the same interest! The first Thursday of every month will have Denise with Day-Dream Art here walking us through the painting step by step. There is a fee for this one. See our Instagram (@pandoracoffeehouse) or our Facebook Page (Pandora Coffee) for detailed information (usually about 10 days before the first Thursday of the month). Everything included to paint your first masterpiece!
Coffee, coffee. Of course! All fair-trade, organic from around the world. All manual processing means fresh ground pour-overs to ensure the smoothest, no bitter tasting coffee ever! Lattes with organic milk, coconut milk, almond or soy. Hand blended. No machines involved, this is the real deal. Enjoy a hand pressed espresso like you have never had! We love coffee here, and of course have one of the largest areas to sit and enjoy, read, contemplate, design, get to know one another, converse or just relax to music. Not a coffee lover? We have teas! Not the grocery store teas, ours are sourced from around the world and our list keeps growing. Come experiment in this growing interest area!
Just trying to create a genuine comfy, artistic, creative space for thinkers, travelers, artists, musicians and hippies who seek not only what the world may offer, but the sweet taste of the finest coffees and teas from around the world...
