In a sea of chain stores, BacInTyme offers a refreshing taste of yesteryear

As big box and chain stores make their way into bucolic Fort Mill, it is refreshing to find a new place in town like BacInTyme Coffee Café.

Tucked away behind Main Street at 124 Confederate St, this historic home could soon become a favorite local meeting place.

BacInTyme offers coffees, espressos, lattes, teas, smoothies and protein shakes. All-natural baked goods include New York bagels, cookies, shortbread, muffins and croissants. “Southern style” cereals, fresh fruit and light lunches are also available. Don't miss the Wednesday breakfast tray special with fresh baked muffins and country ham biscuits.

Owner Georgia Harper Ehrenberg converted a small home to create a unique and intimate gathering spot. Patrons have their choice of several rooms to enjoy.

As with any home, each room has a different feel, and it's up to you to pick your mood. Choose from an enclosed side porch, more formal Victorian living room, back room with large table or the main room to catch those coming and going. Outside seating provides a soothing backdrop in the side garden.

Local and regional artists have their work for sale throughout the café. Catch live music, including blues and jazz, Friday and Saturday evenings and poetry readings 6-8p.m. Tuesday nights.

BacInTyme is open 7a.m.-2p.m. and 4-9p.m. Monday through Saturday and 10a.m.-2p.m. Sundays. Ehrenberg points out that she is not watching the clock, so patrons should feel free to linger past closing time and “make new history in the charming historical town of Fort Mill, South Carolina.”
