Cafe Lachine catered our wedding in June. They did a phenomenal job. Food was delicious, all perfectly cooked and original. They worked in a timely manner and left the house kitchen cleaner than before! We highly recommend them for the quality of the food to anyone interested in getting married on the OBX or just having a meal there.

What an amazing breakfast! I was a bit worried when I saw how small the breakfast menu the food was perfect. The shrimp and grits, one of my favorite foods, was among the best I've ever had and the chocolate croissant was probably the best I've had outside of France. The French toast, which I was a but hesitant about... More

They catered two dinners for us at the beach house and absolutely blew us away. Service was impreccable and invisible, the Carrot hummingbird cake is amazing and the key lime pie is as good as it gets.

While small, Café Lachine makes up for its size by presenting a top-flight menu. We've been dining here since it opened and the food is always perfectly prepared. What impressed me recently is the shrimp and grits from their brunch menu. This dish is easily as good as that served in our other fave, the Blue Moon Beach Grill, The... More

Cafe Lachine has been wonderful for our island community! I am a Children's Librarian and we use them for catering for staff birthdays! Food is so flavorful with unique twists on classics! We always feel like we have been spoiled but have eaten food that is delicious and good for us, as well! The location is small and you have... More

We stopped here for brunch on our way back home. I wish we had stopped by sooner. They have a limited brunch menu but they also serve from their regular menu. I had the shrimp and grits and my husband had the biscuits and gravy. Both were very good. It was a quiet morning for them. We were one of... More

We had lunch there today. They serve breakfast sandwiches all day, so my friend was happy to order the egg and cheddar croissant. Buttery, hot and filling. I had the chicken salad sandwich on toasted wheat bread. Delicious! Lots of salad, juicy tomato and non-iceberg lettuce. The chicken salad had grapes and spiced pecans, no gooey mayonnaise.

Friends and I enjoyed our lunch very much. I had the best chicken salad I have ever eaten. It came with a pesto orzo salad that was just ok and a dense delicious brownie that was absolutely delicious. We will make this place a regular stop on our visits to the outer banks,

I found this place on TA and it did not disappoint. It is located in shopping plaza and could have been easily over looked. Food was all delicious. Will make it a point to visit again on next trip to Nags Head.

We found Cafe Lachine a few years ago (thanks to TA) and its on our "to-do" list every year. My wife and I absolutely love the peanut butter pie, which they don't always have, but luckily when I stopped in last Monday they still had a few pieces. Funny Story, I walked in the door and must not have noticed... More
