Plan your next day trip to downtown Anderson, SC

Do you have a day off from work, or even a free Saturday and don’t want to be cooped up in your house all day? Grab your friends, family, or loved ones and take a trip and explore the beautiful downtown of Anderson, South Carolina! With all the new businesses uprising in town, this is the perfect opportunity to plan a day trip full of adventure! Here are my top three recommendations when looking for a coffee shop, restaurant, and attraction in downtown Anderson, SC!

Spot #1: The Bradbury Bistro

Bradbury Bistro

The first spot I would recommend visiting in downtown Anderson is the Bradbury Bistro. It is a new and upbeat coffee shop located right when you enter downtown on North Main Street. It’s a place that brings you all the Paris and Bridgerton vibes you can ask for. The Bradbury Bistro has a wide range of menu items for both breakfast and lunch. My personal order includes a latte and one of their delicious pastries. Additionally, the Bistro stays open later in the night where you can come in and enjoy a glass of wine or a special cocktail! Come into the Bradbury Bistro and enjoy the view of downtown whether that is with a cup of coffee or a glass of wine!

Spot #2: Sullivans Metropolitan Grill

Sullivans Metro Grill

After a good cup of coffee, it’s time to fill up on some tasty food! Sullivans Metropolitan Grill is the perfect restaurant that can satisfy all your lunch and dinner accommodations! They have exceptional customer service, but most importantly they want everyone that enters their restaurant to feel loved and welcomed! They have a wide range of selections off their lunch and dinner menu from salads, burgers, sandwiches, steaks, pasta, and offering a special dish each day! My favorite part about Sullivans is the dessert. In the restaurant they display a huge dessert case that has all different handmade cheesecakes and cakes! It’s the best way to end a delicious meal! As a past employer of Sullivans Metropolitan Grill, I can personally tell you it is the best food in downtown Anderson, SC!

Spot #3: Carolina Wren Park

Lastly, to finish off the day in Downtown Anderson take a stroll in the charming Carolina Wren Park! This little park is located in the center of Downtown. It’s a place to enjoy a nice stroll or even meet up with friends to have a picnic in the sunshine! This park holds all kinds of events in every season of the year whether it’s a concert, an outside movie in the summer or ice-skating in the winter. Carolina Wren Park is created to bring family and friends together in the center of the city of Anderson!
