Bookstore is quite small but there was a decent selection. Was looking for more in terms of children's books. Mostly board and activity books rather than story books. Coffee was excellent as was the HUGE blueberry muffin which was more coffee cake like. I also enjoyed the locally made greeting cards and made sure to pick up a couple.

I would travel back to Duck, NC solely for this coffee shop. Baked goods freshly out of the oven, delicious drinks, and a laid back, cozy atmosphere. What more could you ask for? I loved browsing for books while waiting in line then making my way out to the porch to sip on my coffee while taking in the beautiful... More

Duck Cottage feature a huge variety of coffee from straight up to their famous "Mucky Duck" -- served cold with caramel, chocolate and, of course, whip cream. Space is small with limited seating and a modest "bookstore." Nice place to start your day.

Great coffee, good sweets, books and newspapers. Sat in an adirondack chair on the front porch of this old-fashioned cottage, sipping coffee with a sweet...and MY sweet next to me...while drinking in the scent of the jasmine surrounding the porch. It is an oasis in the middle of the swirl of the usual beach activity.

This shop is small but great. They carry an awesome selection of books, including a ton of "local" books, either written by local authors or books about the Outer Banks and surrounding areas, a nice selection of fiction, and a nice kid's section. The coffee was outstanding. I had the iced "Nutty Duck" and it was absolutely delicious. Their coffee... More

They are super nice and can recommend a great book. They have tons of local knowledge. Bonus the shop is amazing It's an old gun club that has been converted to a book store and coffee shop.

A small quaint place to relax and get a good cup of coffee. Cozy and comfortable. Would be better if they offered at least 2 types of coffee plus the decaf. They only have decaf plus one other regular coffee. We wanted a "bolder" coffee.

Their coconut crunch coffee is the best coffee I've ever had! We pick it up on our annual vacation to OBX in June. Their other drinks are great too! Iced coffee drinks are great when it's hot outside!

We have probably been to this bookstore/coffee shop 10 times on our vacation. I love the coffee and the location is great. However, I was shocked at how little the staff knew about the books they were selling. The only reason to shop at an independent bookstore is to talk books with the staff and get some great recommendations. Didn't... More
