I had recently went on a trip to the beautiful State of South Carolina, and while I was there in the Greenville Area, I frequented a fantastic cigar shop called Boda Pipes & Cigars. In my neck of the woods in the Province of Nova Scotia in Canada, we do not have traditional cigar B&M's or other forms of cigar establishments, so this was indeed a real treat for me to shop for and smoke some fine cigars.
From the first moment I walked into Boda, I was enthralled by the enormous smoking area for patrons, who want to relax and have a cigar, but I was also blown away by Boda's massive walk-in humidor, where you could pick out any brand, blend and size of cigar you wish. I first met a kindly older gentleman, who smoked a pipe who was very courteous to me and my friend Erin, this employee definitely personified the phrase 'Old Southern Hospitality.'
The staff of Boda Pipes & Cigars were very helpful, courteous and knowledgeable of the product they were selling, not to mention professional to boot. On one of my frequent trips to Boda while sitting down having a beefy Brickhouse Mighy Mighty Maduro, I had a fantastic conversation with Andrew, who is the Assistant Manager of Boda Pipes & Cigar. Andrew and I spoke on everything, from the major changes in the cigar industry over the last few years, to the differences in the cost of living indexes of Canada and the United States.
Not only can you enjoy a nice cigar in Boda's beautiful lounge, but you can enjoy a nice hot cup of coffee, from Boda's wide selection of house and traditional blends. The coffee was excellent, hot, fresh and at a very affordable price.
The next time you are in the Greenville, SC Area, you would be amiss not to stop into Boda Pipes and Cigars if you are truly a passionate cigar enthusiast. Boda is located at the McAlister Square Shopping Center, which is located at 225 S Pleasantburg Dr E9. So check out Boda Pipes & Cigars, sit in the lounge and enjoy that cigar!
