Breakfast

Had a good breakfast. I liked the idea of using pans for plates. Wasn't crazy about having to keep getting up to get my own drink, but did like the varieties of coffee they carried.

This is a great place to stop for breakfast. They have a locals special that is only 5.99 and it is wonderful. It is not crowded and the food was amazing. I have already been once for breakfast and I plan on going again tomorrow.

We drive two hours a couple times per year just to eat lunch here! The food is fresh and the staff is very helpful and friendly. We never leave without a pretzel-bottom brownie for the road.

We used a BOGO coupon. The suggestion on it was that there was new management & a new attitude so we thought we would try again for lunch. It's nearby & we were hoping it might be another "go to" place, especially for visiting family & friends. When you first walk in, there's a counter with food and a register...that's... More

The place does not live up to its name. The service was slow. They made the menu complicated and for the cup and half they couldn't do an Italian sub, but they could do an Italian panini.

We went here for a late lunch on a Thursday afternoon. It's off seaon, so we were the only ones in there. The staff was very friendly and helpful. My wife has some pretty strict dietary restrictions and they were very accommodating and patient. I got the Reuben Special and I'm very picky about Reubens beacuse not everyone gets it... More

My husband and I were in OBX on vacation and tried this eatery at the urging of our son. When you enter, you will see a beautifully arranged store with a large selection of fresh and prepackaged gourmet food items. You are immediately greeted by the aroma of heavenly baked goods and freshly brewed coffees. You can order from a... More

Sandwiches are excellent. You order at counter and food is brought to you, so if you want a place to have a lunch meeting, this would be it. Once you've seated yourself, you're on your own and there is no waitress interruption while eating. The other nice thing is that if you're watching your portions, this is a good place... More
