Sat with my kid and had coffee and a gravy biscuit while my wife shopped next door. Great spot, great service, out of the way but worth looking for. These biscuits were big as baseballs. Recommend.

We have fallen in love with this restaurant. It is always busy, the coffee is great. Wonderful wait staff and 10:00 is our time to go...we like 'brunch' and it works into our schedule; we actually make time for First Light! Portions are huge! You won't leave hungry.

On our first morning at the beach and no food at the house, my friends and I found First Light in Corolla and decided to try it. It is a small place and must be crowded in the summer. We were there in the off season so had no problem getting seated. The food was terrific and there was a... More

My favorite things are the potatoes! Today a couple eating breakfast heard it was our anniversary and they had the waitress bing over a drink for... More

Our guide on our wild horse tour suggested this place. It was excellent. Four of us had breakfast food. The home fries were the best I've ever had in my life. Service was great. Prices are average.

I was not at all impressed with this place. We were visiting the shops where this restaurant was located and stopped there for drinks because it was the only place open. My husband was looking for a cold "adult" beverage and I wanted a soda. The hostess and server acted like they were doing us a favor to wait on... More
