  • Local Business Spotlight- Knightsville General Store & Coffee House

    Our Local Business Spotlight is the Knightsville General Store and Coffee House! Located at 1700 Central Avenue in the Knightsville section of Summerville, you will find a throwback to days gone by when you pay them a visit. 

    What started as a place for people to come visit, sit, and enjoy a great cup of coffee and conversation, has grown to be the spot for the locals to frequent. This is just a short list of the items that can be found at the Knightsville General Store!

    • Wide assortment of homemade items for lunch and dinner
    • Daily specials
    • Fresh brewed coffee from Black Rifle Coffee and Coastal Coffee Roasters
    • Hershey’s hand-dipped ice cream
    • Local items including farm fresh dairy products and eggs
    • Coming soon! Fresh baked muffins and pastries
    • 10% discount for Seniors (65+) on menu items every Wednesday!

    The Knightsville General Store is not just the place to get a great meal or cup of coffee. Now they offer several different events throughout the year. One of their most popular events is what they call the Knightsville Porch Jam!

    Harkening back to a time when it was commonplace for people to gather together in the evening on porches. At the Knightsville Porch Jam, musicians play while families enjoy just spending time together playing games and leaving all the craziness of their busy lives behind them. It is a reminder of simpler times when conversations were only face to face and not phone to phone. It’s a time for people to get to know one another while enjoying great food and fun games. It’s something that I think many of us need in our often hectic lives.

    Every Thursday Night is GAME NIGHT at the Knightsville General Store!
    Join in for a game or two and a chance to win a $20 gift certificate! Beginning August 23, the hours for Game Night will be 6pm to 8pm. You don’t want to miss out on the fun!

    Now that school is going to be back in session, the Knightsville General Store will have new hours. Beginning August 21, 2018, they will be open Tuesday through Saturday from 9am to 6pm and Sunday from 12pm to 4pm.

    If you have never been, please pay them a visit and let them know you heard about their store on Life in Summerville! To check out more information and their menu, please go to their website or Facebook page

    What are you waiting for? Head over there now! You won’t be disappointed.
