Great little place

We stopped for a quick lunch and were not disappointed. Not busy, and the menu had lots of cold or hot sandwich choices with a variety of interesting sides. The Cuban pressed sandwich was delicious.

Go for the crab cake sandwich on a brioche. Crab cake was huge and had lump of crab in it (not imitation crab)! It was a great combination with the brioche! Hubby had the fried green tomato sandwich which was tasty as well! Food was fresh and affordable! Friendly service!

I can only say you MUST eat breakfast here. Everything was wonderful, including the local home grown coffee. The only minor drawback for us was that all grits are served with ham bits and we don't eat pork. We really wanted to try the shrimp and grits, but what we had instead was EXCELLENT!

We had breakfast here twice that week and it was delicious. Highly recommend this family run cafe in Nags Head. Great pastries, cookies, brownies, etc.

We stopped for a late lunch. The scallop po'boy was as good as or better then New Orleans. The sweet potato fries are too thin for my taste but my wife loves them. The creamy crab soup was the best. The kids chicken strips were big enough for 2 little ones to share. The key lime tart was very good.... More

open for breakfast and lunch, don't miss going here. Homemade breads, soups and deserts. Menu includes salads, sandwiches and lots of great breakfast items. Get the chicken biscuit (lovely southern fried chicken, with applewood smoked bacon and cheddar on a homemade herbed biscuit) and you will be filled for the entire day!

Ate here twice while on vacay and really enjoyed breakfast, the chive muffins are excellent, light and fluffy and the egg sandwiches are good as well. Service was good as well.

We enjoyed a light lunch of black bean soup, a shrimp po'boy and a special of the day -- 3 small beef tacos. The soup was pureed and decorated with a white creamy spicy sauce...a delicious combination. The shrimp po'boy was loaded with large tender fried shrimp and the 3 tacos were both spicy and refreshing. Overall a very satisfying... More

This morning I had their stuffed French toast with mascarpone cheese and my wife had their eggs Benedict's. Both delicious - so was the coffee. Finally, a flavorful coffee.
