Cobb’s Coffee Corner: All In Coffee Shop

All In Coffee Shop has been serving Clemson for a decade now.

This week, we’ve finally reached the powerhouse of Clemson caffeination; All In Coffee Shop. Located in the heart of downtown, All In has been faithfully serving Clemson students for a decade, celebrating its official 10-year anniversary this past April. Beyond coffee and fresh pastries, All In prides itself on its philanthropy and cultural diversity, stating on its website that they “wish to learn from each, and… become the home away from home for Clemson’s international students.” 2% of their gross sales each month are donated to various humanitarian efforts across the globe.

In full disclosure, I have been a regular at All In Coffee since the start of 2021, and for good reason.

First and foremost, as we look at the vibes for All In, we will find nothing but excellence. There is a variety of seating spaces, indoor and outdoor, for whatever customers desire. The farther back you go into the cafe, typically the more study-focused it is, but their large space lets for all manner of volume and activity without ever feeling overwhelming.

It’s not uncommon to see all their seating filled, but it’s not often you’ll find a large line, thanks to the incredible staff. They’re ready and willing to help you find the perfect order, delivering it to your table with a smile. Rarely will you see a team as kind, coordinated and talented as this one. The only things better than their service are the delicious treats they provide.

It would be criminal to give All In anything but a 5 out of 5 for vibes.

All In Coffee saw renovations to expand their kitchen this past January, so one can only imagine how much effort they put into their food. All In is probably most famous for their cinnamon rolls, an easy go-to recommendation for any customer, new or returning. Although it is only one of their large selection of not only pastries, but cakes, pies, breakfast items and various lunch options, as well.

Each day they bake three fresh items for customers, typically a muffin and two scones. While their cinnamon roll is a classic, I would recommend their cranberry white chocolate scone over anything else. I grab it any chance I get, and have yet to regret it.

What else could I give All In’s food but a 5 out of 5?

As I said before, I have been a regular at All In for almost a year, and out of everything, their coffee is what brings me back every single time. If I was limited to a singular coffee order for the rest of my life, it would be a hazelnut latte. And if I could only order it from a singular cafe, it would be All In. I’ve tried various other orders and specialty drinks from their menu, which are all excellent, but I can’t help but return to my favorite. 

I truly believe it is a crime against yourself to spend any amount of time in Clemson and not try All In Coffee. If you need a starting point, I happily recommend the hazelnut latte, but they’re sure to do any drink justice.

All In’s coffee without a doubt gets a 5 out of 5.
