Black Tap stands alone as the only coffee shop located in an old Charleston style house, situated in the heart of downtown Charleston, yet away from the hustle and bustle of lower King Street. Black Tap has the essentials for an outdoor enthusiast’s perfect coffee shop: Wi-Fi, a relaxed environment, and most importantly, excellent coffee. For its somewhat small size, the white walls and crisp, modern nature of the place makes it feel quite spacious. And with plenty of seating (including a communal table in the center of the room and bar seating lining one of the adjacent walls), it's the perfect spot to meet new people, hang out with friends, or do some work on your laptop. The coffee bar is located in the back, all of the seating is in the front, and the large front windows allow customers to easily look out over Beaufain Street and watch people passing by.
All of the coffee is spectacular, and the baristas are quite talented at their craft. Try the brown sugar latte; it's delicious.
