Sandwiches made to order, quick service- nice and clean! There are many, many choices for some place to eat here but this was convenient and located near shopping and sights you may want to see. Would be great for takeout lunch to go to the beach!

We travel to OBX (Hatteras Island) 3-4 times a year and are always on the lookout for places to eat along the way. We accidentally found Waveriders when we were looking for a different place. What a find! Great atmosphere, really nice owner, laptop stations, good music, and excellent breakfast wraps/sandwiches/pastries/coffee. It's a great spot to hang out, and a... More

Love this spot! Their coffee is awesome and sandwiches are equally delicious! My only qualm is that they don't open earlier. We hit this up with every visit to the OBX!

We are so happy that you loved our Coffee and sandwiches, you must be an early riser! In the 'off-season' we open at 7am and once we get to Memorial Day we open at 6:30am everyday. We try to open as early as we are ready and most times that is no later than 15 minutes early, most times sooner!... More

My husband and I stayed in Nags Head for a mini vacation. We really enjoyed this quaint spot. We say at the bar and both enjoyed a variation of a turkey sandwich. He had a club and I had the Gouda. We followed this delicious lunch with a peanut butter brownie! It's a great lunch spot! Neat, friendly staff! A+

We stopped here twice on our vacation and our coffee was consistently delicious every time. The folks there were so nice, the scones were scrumptious and my husband loved his breakfast sandwich. A great place to visit every morning!

The coffee was really good. The service was super-friendlly. The pastries, at least, the muffins, were the worst I have ever had, and that made me sad because i wanted to like everything about this place.
