Somewhere In Time Antiques / Perkin' Beans Cafe & Smoothies!, 9701 Sumter Highway: Fall 2011   4 comments

Then:

Now:

I would notice this little coffee shop on the Sumter Highway sometimes as I was heading for the beach, but if I was taking that route, I would either have taken care of my caffeine needs at Starbucks or it would be the outside of business hours anyway, so I never got around to stopping. It looks to have had a nice, quirky, interior.

Currently the rubric for Somewhere in Time Antiques is again visible on the building's west side, and commenter tonkatoy reports this interesting little building has also been a gas station and a magistrate's office.

  1. This place undoubtedly failed because of it was run by at least one extremely nasty woman.

  2. From what I understand, the owners just decided to cease operations when the kids who worked there went back to college.

  3. Perkin' Beans had super delicious thick chicken salad sandwiches and sometimes hosted art exhibits.

    David Jennings was the Magistrate at this location in the '80s.

  4. Rumor has it that the interior is being redone and this building will reopen (don't know as what) fairly soon.
