In one of the many shopping strips along 158 in the Outer Banks, stopped in for some coffee to start my morning and was pleasantly surprised. Was greeted with a friendly smile and lady at the counter. She was super friendly and very attentive on making sure she was helping my coffee needs for the morning :). It is a... More

This is the place to stop for coffee and some awesome paninis. Service is great and coffee incredible! Had the soup of the day, a lentil and quinoa soup, and it was incredibly tasty. This is the place to go around here for just a cup of coffee or a full on lunch. You won't be disappointed.

We were looking for a local coffee shop on our trip to the OBX. This place is not just local, it is also great. I had the best iced coffee and their Chocolate Chip Muffins are the bomb!

If you want to slow down and have a light, healthy lunch, and certainly if you are looking for a tasty vegetarian option, this place is perfect. It's very small, and has the boho-hippie feel of many good, creative little deli shops; understanding that, my hummus/veggie sandwich was just perfect. There are non-vegetarian options as well, but we didn't get... More
