This is the quintessential coffee shop that you’ll love to duck into off Main Street in Fort Mill. Try their nitro cold brew creations or try their drip coffee. Olive's Mud Puddle is a part of the community offering workshops, artist memberships and kids classes! Shop the art and pottery selection while you’re fueling up on their brews. Our favorite cold beverage from Olive's is their twist on a classic- an iced vanilla honey chai latte.
