Delicious Chai

My wife tells me the coffee is great. I don't drink coffee, but I had the chai and it was great. It is a good place to read or relax. There is free wi-fi, plenty of comfortable seats.

The menu had a lot of interesting selections. I simply wanted a flavored back coffee and they were able to accomodate. Thier smooth roast with a shot of carmel flavor was just what I needed.

Muddy Waters was within walking distance of the B&B I was in during my stay in Elizabeth City. I enjoyed both Iced and hot coffee specialties (Liquid Brownie, White Cliffs and Blondie Mocha) a total of 5 visits in the 3 days I was there. Friendly staff and customers - as an out-of-towner - you want to know something about... More

I love coffee. I mean I just really love coffee. And Muddy Waters Coffeehouse makes great coffee. The last time I went I had a pumpkin spice latte and, good day, was it good. The atmosphere at Muddy's is so great.. Almost reminds me of Central Perk if you're a "Friends" fan like myself. Anyways... go to Muddy's get coffee.... More

This is a place that I visit at least once a week. We have a Starbucks but why bother. They know what my order is, everyone is friendly. It's filled with local people so if you are visiting strike up a conversation with the people in there. You never know who you are going to meet.

No Starbucks in Elizabeth City, but who needs it when you have Muddy Waters?? The coffee selection is great, the service is great, the ambience is welcoming... And the coffee? Easily as good as Starbucks and they have a good selection of locally roasted beans for sale. I recommend the "Blackbeards Revenge"!

They make terrific americanos, and the costa rican blend is awesome. Wish they always offered creme brûlée and that pumpkin brûlée all year round it is so yummy!

I have visited a few times. The service has always been fast and friendly. Inside and outside seating area to enjoy your java. The hot coffees are much tastier than the iced blends. The iced drink I have tried had a power, chalky aftertaste. Will definitely go again and again.

Great coffee selections. One block from B&B so it was very convenient and we love our coffee. Only issue was coffee in the evening was only lukewarm. Nice young students work there!

A true neighborhood coffeehouse, snug and homey with well-worn couches, a kitchen table and smaller seating throughout. Although I haven't been here for a few months, I have patronized Muddy's intermittently for years, usually to hang out with friends whether just for the heck of it or as part of a study group. Coffee is fresh and most of the... More
