One of Our Favorite Restaurants in Greenville SC - Swamp Rabbit Cafe

Today I'm at one of our favorite restaurants in Greenville SC chatting with, Mary Walsh, one of the owners and founders of Swamp Rabbit Cafe and Grocery.   Located just two miles from downtown Greenville SC, they serve our community by connecting us with local farms offering the very best locally grown produce, local meats, local goods and products, fresh bakery, great coffee, a full menu which now includes Swamp Pizza! It is a wonderful community hub right on the GHS Swamp Rabbit Trail.  Mary tells us about how they started making their famous Stecca bread ... watch the video below to hear her story ...

Greenville SC Events

They have great local events at the Swamp Rabbit Cafe like a Dance Party once a month, Spring Flea and Holiday Flea with local makers and great local gifts.  Attend one of their cooking classes or community dinners.  Listen to experts on a variety of sustainable subjects like bee keeping, canning, raising chickens and so much more.  Bring your kids to play in their fenced in play yard right off the trail.

Bike Friendly Cafe

The Swamp Rabbit Cafe is one of the most bike friendly cafes you will find.  Trail riders and roadies alike pour in every day off the bike trail to refuel and refresh.  This is a great place to grab a delicious coffee drink or smoothie and a gluten free donut or a homemade scone and by all means don't leave without a Stecca bread (Mary's recipe) stuffed in your bike basket or bike jersey.  Just veer off the Swamp Rabbit Trail and into their parking lot.  Enjoy dining al fresco under the generous shade canopies!  They also have plenty of bicycle parking and picnic tables.
