A Wonderful Alternative to "a stack of pancakes" style restaurants

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... read 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

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.

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.

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.
