Pretty good breakfast

I visited this restaurant in July while on a family vacation. We came here for breakfast and we had to wait awhile to get a table because it was so busy. We got a table outside and most of it was in the sun. I ordered pancakes and they were good but not the best I've ever had. Overall, this... read more

This is the only place we frequent for brekkie in Corolla. It's sort of a thing. Love their crabby eggs benedict, and they deep fry the French toast which is sort of like having bread pudding deep fried...so ya know, it's good. The Big Meaty with all kinds of breakfast meat and eggs on a biscuit is also the cure... More

You can tell this is a hidden gem and the locals love it here. We waited for about 10 minutes for a table around 11:00am. Service was great. Prices seemed reasonable for OBX. I had a the French toast and my husband had the Hambone Hangover. Both were very good. Mine was different than what I'm used to for French... More

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.

I went in the off season and this place was packed! Great variety of food and the prices won't break the bank. My kind of restaurant!

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

We come here every year. The food tastes as good the first time as it was today. Huge amount. Got biscuits and gravy which comes with 2 large biscuits and mounds of flavorful gravy. 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.
