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

Being a local we get to frequent Muddy Waters coffeehouse regularly. The service is always friendly. Some of the baristas have won national competitions. We highly recommend Muddy Waters to all of our friends visiting the area for the best coffee.

My husband was stationed in Elizabeth City about 2 years ago and we loved this coffee house! We were really upset after we moved and couldnt find a decent one. So we still order coffee from them! We do miss going into the shop though. It is such a great atmosphere. Very small town and people remember you and know... More

We were early for our check-in at our B&B so we walked around town and stopped in here for a mid-afternoon latte. Staff was very friendly and efficient. Great selection of items including bags of coffee. Coffee could be hotter. Another customer asked if they could make her drink hotter and the staff explained that the machine dictates the temperature... More

This place is sort of out of the way from the downtown - right near the bed and breakfast where we stayed, The Grice-Fearing House. We stopped in for a mid-afternoon pick-me-up and were very satisfied with a great cup of coffee. Relaxing atmosphere, nice vibe. Will definitely return when we next visit Elizabeth City.

Every time I go to Elizabeth City I have to go to Muddy Waters at least once. Everyone I have met there is very pleasant and makes wonderful coffee. I always get the Milky Way (hot) and it is always delicious.

Muddy Waters is one of the lynchpins of Elizabeth City. The coffee is great but just as important, the atmosphere is great. I had one of the best cappuccinos there, well mixed with enough foam. The next day, I ordered an iced coffee to go and it was prepared well. Next time, I'll make time to hang out at the... More

This place keeps upping their game with the comfort and décor of the place, while keeping all of the delicious favorites. Great quality coffee and I occasionally buy a pound of whole bean. I recently had a stay at the Elizabeth City Bed and Breakfast who had a fantastic breakfast and was walking distance to Muddy Waters.
