Excellent local coffee place!

Loved the coffee here, especially the Holiday Blend. Even went back to get some to bring home with us. Will become our go-to coffee place in OBX! Glad it has multiple locations.

Quite a neat place, but the ladies who worked there seemed very unhappy. I realize they have to wake up early in the morning, but they knew (I hope) what they were going into. I as a customer do not want to start my morning with their attitude. Highly suggest management to reconsider staff

Anytime I travel I always look for coffee shops! This was a few blocks from our rental, and i loved it! As soon as I walked in I felt welcomed by the staff! They were very friendly and outgoing!

Great local coffee shop! Great variety of daily brews and excellent speciality drinks as well. Try it once and you will want to take it home if you are on vacation or make it a daily ritual if you are a local.
