Very good meals and deli

There was one server. We walk in and were greeted with a smile. We placed our breakfast order, got our coffee (self serve) and sat down. The meal came in a reasonable amount of time. My western omelet was very good as were the home fries and rye toast. My wife had scrambled eggs which were... read more

The best crab omelet and home-fries. Excellent coffee and fresh brewed Iced Tea, a great atmosphere. We wish we could have stayed and tried some of your other treats.

We didn't experience any of the negative experiences mentioned in some of the recent reviews . While the woman assisting us was not overly friendly she was by no means rude. The food sold us . It was delivered quick, hot, freshly prepared and delicious. The home fries and pancakes were outstanding and the coffee was great. Great spot for... More

Wow! Do they want me to cook my breakfast too? Waiting in line with a menu while people waiting for me to decide what I want. Very rushed feeling. Had to find somewhere to set my purse, on top of some merchandise. Older skinny dirty blonde woman grouchy and unfriendly. She didn't even tell me how much I owed her.... More

We picked this place because they have the gluten free options. When we stepped inside, we were in awe of wonderful atmosphere. Filled with good food and wine! The food was delicious! My gluten free son said it was one of the best sandwich he ever had. I regret we couldn't go there for the breakfast but the menu looked... More

we stumbled on this place a couple of years ago and make sure we go there for breakfast each time we visit OBX. The omelette are great and the biscuits perfect. You place your order, get your coffee and can sit either indies or outside. The meal is delivers within ten minutes and is cooked to order. No prefab eggs... More

I especially like to eat breakfast here but have also had lunch. The food is fresh and very good. The people working there are always great.

Serves breakfast 'til one. Lovely setting and atmosphere. Indoor/outdoor. Busy little place, but not during our visit (a perfect beach day). The front of GLG is a lovely bakery, deli area, nicely decorated with unique food/candies, wines, coffees, and gifts. They have a nice menu - you order and pay for your meal at the front register. For dine-in, you... More

Thank you for taking time to do a review of your visit. I would like to set the record straight...the tip jar at the front register is shared by all the employees on the front line including the dishwasher and bus person. Any tips left on the table go into that tip jar. Tips added to customers' charge receipts also... More

We were driving around Kitty Hawk and spied this place out of the corner of our eyes - it was in a strip mall and wasn't discernibly busy. However, that's not the fault of the food. There is a gift/gourmet/candy store entrance and at the back you place your order and it's brought to your table. The skillet breakfasts were... More
