Much like the steam needed to power the engines of the Charleston and Western Carolina Railroad which were an integral part of Fountain Inn's History, Steam Coffee & Cream hopes to be the steam that powers movement, creates connection, and fosters community.

What is your steam?  What fuels you?

For some, coffee is the steam that fuels their day, others sweet treats & delicious food, for many it is family.

We'd love for you to come visit and tell us what your steam is because for us it is providing a place to create connections and community within the lovely city of Fountain Inn.


The Williams Family

Chris and Erica own this shop (the real owner is actually that spunky two year old in the photo). Although Chris hails from the foreign land of Georgia, Erica is a Simpsonville native. We are thrilled to be living in the upstate and living out our vision of owning a coffee shop in a quaint downtown setting. Fountain Inn is the most welcoming and supportive town you'll ever find, and we love serving the area gourmet, hand-crafted coffee drinks, scrumptious sandwiches, and scoop ice cream (milkshakes, floats, sundaes, etc.)


Our hope is that Steam is more than a local place to get coffee and gourmet food and treats, but also a place to connect and create with our community.

We love to host events, such as open mic nights and rock painting parties, and we offer space for local artisans to promote their work. We also offer our space for rental for private events like bridal, baby showers, birthday parties, etc.


If you have any ideas for events or would like to book an event, please email us at
