As a huge coffee drinker I've visited many coffee shops during vacations. This one by far exceeds my expectations by knowledge of staff, friendliness of the staff, selection of beverages and sandwiches and cleanliness of the business. I visited daily during my Outer Banks trip. The breakfast sandwiches are excellent and prepared either by menu description or made to order... More

We stopped here for coffee one morning while we were staying on the Outer Banks. The menu had a lot of variety between the coffee, breakfast items, smoothies, sandwiches, etc. The food was very good, and there are tables to sit at to enjoy your food or, take it with you to the beach, which is close by. A couple... More

We ate here several times on this latest visit. We enjoyed the breakfast fare and had good sandwiches, from a large selection, at lunch. Moderate seating, although we never had a problem finding a place; much better than any other deli, which often have NO seating. There are also a few seats outside, which we opted for on a couple...

This was by far and away the best eats we had in Nags Head for lunch. To be sure, there are tons of great restaurants on the beach, but this really hit the spot. Sandwiches, coffee and desserts are the order of the day - get the Waverider sandwich or the Rueben, and the peanut butter brownie - yum!

We stopped by here for breakfast on the way to Bodie Island Lighthouse. It was fabulous! They also have a gluten free bread choice for those of us with Celiac. The prices were great as well. Supporting local businesses is the way to go!

Thanks for visiting while you were in town. We do enjoy seeing everyone enjoy our deck seating outside with a great view of the new Adventure Park (zip line) across the street. We actually don't have a fireplace, but our comfy chairs do make it look like a fireplace should be there! We will have to see about one for... More

A lot of places cannot make a raspberry mocha but Waveriders was spot on. I was so pleasantly surprised I just about laughed when I took a sip. Waverders had an abundance of flavors and a food menu to boot. Definitely will be back.
