1. Open Road Coffee Roasters,

915 W Mills St., Columbus, North Carolina 28722

Okay, so Open Road used to be a bank. Now its home to some of the best coffee and pastries in the Upstate. They even have a drive-thru. Starbucks be damned.

1 E. Coffee St.

Greenville, SC 29601


The hipster coffee stop in downtown Greenville, with one of the best vibes (and some of the best food) in the city. They open early, stay open late, do their own roasting, and serve breakfast all day. Perfect for when your nerves are shot contemplating the never-ending endurance debacle.

3. Carolina Moon Coffee Café & Unique Gifts

2992 Memorial Highway

Lake Lure, NC 28746

Carolina Moon is famous for their coffee cake. You can even order one online if you've decided to abandon equestrian sports for eating.

4. Tryon Coffeehouse Co-op

62 A N Trade St Tryon, North Carolina 28782

Comfy chairs, excellent lattes, and a no-nonsense cup of coffee make this a hometown favorite. Their food truck even features fried Oreos (don't ask).

5. Buck N' Brew Coffee Shop

18981 Asheville Highway

Campobello, South Carolina

I mean, how can you resist?
