Stopped in for some quick breakfast takeout, and was greeted by two friendly young ladies who clearly loved their job. Nothing like a nice smile in the morning, especially when followed by some delicious muffins. Try the cranberry/orange in particular -- it was super. A nice place with nice people.

This is always the first place we stop whenever we visit the OBX for the day. We have had so many different selections I can't really say what my favorite is. The baristas are AMAZING! Always so warm and friendly. I love the atmosphere. I love the fragrance. I love the coffee!
