One important reason for me to spend my vacations in Avon, NC is Cafe 12, both for their Shrimp and Hatteras Flats! I just hope you guys will open again - Cafe 12 was always my favorite place!

This isn't a review, as much as a sad love story. We visit Avon a few times a year, and this is one of our favorite stops for dinner. I am just heartbroken that Cafe 12 is closed! Where did you go? Will you be back? We love you. I hope you love us too. We miss you. Please come... More

When a restaurant like Cafe 12 goes out of business, I really wonder if there is hope for any of the establishments on Hatteras Island. We used to frequent this restaurant all the time - with friends or with the kids. Everyone loved it. It was one of the few places open in the off season, the staff was always... More

Wow! Was shocked to find Cafe 12 closed this season. You are missed. Usually our favorite joint to eat at. Good food and service!

We came to Cafe 12 expected an average to subpar meal in a small restaurant in a strip mall. Boy, were we surprised. The food was great! Their "flats" are amazing. What a creative and different twist on a tortilla. Everything was nicely portioned, priced well, and the service was great (and quick enough for us, with children). My husband... More

We stopped in here after a hair-raising drive over flooded highway 12 from Nag's Head, and the good food and friendly service restored our frazzled nerves. My husband was fascinated with the idea of the flats, and tried one with tons of scallops on it, while I had a cup of chowder and salad combo. Everything was delicious and hit... More

We stopped here for lunch and were not disappointed. My husband and I ordered soup, I had the seafood bisque and he had the corn and crab chowder, both were delicious! As my main dish, I had the Po Boy sandwich, fried oysters to perfection!! My husband had the crab cake, which wasn't like our Maryland crab cakes, but he... More

We were disappointed, first and foremost in the service. When we came in, the place was about a third occupied. We were escorted to a table which had not yet been cleaned off. Our server grabbed everything up off the table and wiped it with a rag, leaving most of the crumbs and gunk still on the surface. Then, another... More

Hatteras flat that is. You gotta try a flat if you go there. The spinach and bacon was very good. The cheeseburger flat was our second choice.

Went to eat here because it had good ratings, boy I don't know what everyone raves about. I got the crab and mushroom flat. Weird meal, not great. My son ordered to special. He said his shrimp tasted like chlorine. Even someone else at the table said the same thing. Atmosphere is small town diner which is fine if the... More
