After returning from working in hospitality management in the US Virgin Islands, Patrick Demarco returned to Greenville and needed a job. Why not open a neighborhood cafe and bodega serving fresh foods at a reasonable price?
Open 3 years, Snack Works has quickly become Downtown Greenville’s employee cafeteria with several large businesses naming Snack Works during employee orientation. Patrick tells us, “The same people come and have their own favorite. They order practically 4 or 5 times a week.” Patrick’s philosophy is “keep it basic with only a few ingredients so each ingredient isn’t overpowered.” It’s a philosophy that keeps us coming back.
Standouts? With such an extensive menu of delicious smoothies, fresh wraps, tasty sandwiches and breakfast items it’s hard to choose! Keep scrolling to see our favorites...
Meet the Snack Works Panini. It's busting with flavor, thanks to the pesto mayo and Patrick's seasoned press.
And don't miss the modest, but macho Veggie Salad Wrap. Think salad meets wrap. Romaine, spinach, kale, tomato, red onion, red pepper, lime juice, avocado, cucumber, and balsamic vinaigrette.
The wheatgrass is surprisingly sweet!
Looking for variety? Snack Works stocks everything from Kombucha to Ting.
Don't miss the Green Go Smoothie – kale, spinach, pineapple, and mango. It's a refreshing treat that's sweet and delicious. Oh and did I mention it's only $4? Thanks for keeping it real.
Everything is made to order by owner/operator Patrick Demarco. He’ll even bring it to you table.
The bright and delicious Green Oasis Smoothie.
The next time you find yourself hungry downtown, do yourself a favor and stop in to see Patrick and his lovely assistant, Ayla Hayes. Tell him we all say, hello....make sure you ask for some of his fresh-made green salsa. It's great on everything.
