Always a Highlight of My Island Visits

Great coffee, great eats, great location, exceptional young people behind the counters & espresso machine. Always sad when they close for the season. Looking forward to next year. Thanks again!

Cool little coffee shop with good coffee, to boot! Tried a lemon poppy seed muffin as well which was very tasty. Enjoyed the visit. Lots of locals sitting outside enjoying the morning.

We had breakfast here every morning on our last trip so I was looking forward to revisiting this cozy coffee shop on our most recent trip. I had forgotten that they use all disposable plates, bowls, cups, etc. though (why??? Especially on an island with no recycling?) and forgot to bring my travel mug. Also, the seats and tables on...

Thanks for taking the time to write a review. We're happy you enjoyed your time spent at the shop. Just so you know for future visits to the island, we do, indeed, recycle here on the island! There are large dumpsters at our local dump for cardboard, plastics, and glass--separate from household trash. At the shop we try hard to... More

While visiting Ocracoke Island I usually hit up Ocracoke Coffee Company once per day. It's a great little local coffee house with plenty of seating inside & out if you wish to savor your coffee there.

I am not a local - but go here everytime I'm visiting. Great, laid back place. Terrific coffee, pastries, smoothies. I'm visiting this week. The music was extremely loud. So loud that one had difficulty hearing others speaking. I was inline to ask the barista if he could turn down the music so I could sit inside (it was cool... More

This is a fabulous little establishment! We visited it nearly every day of our week long stay. The employees were very helpful and accommodating on each visit. If you had questions, they assisted and even offered suggestions to best fit your wants. Lines are usually a little lengthy in the summer months, but for us, it was worth the wait.... More

My significant other and I visited ocracoke recently. We read great things about the Ocracoke Coffee Co, and were excited to try it for ourselves. My significant other ordered the Orange Creamsicle smoothie treat with homemade whipped cream and I had the Pumpkin Pie latte. Both were fantastic. The young man working was very informative about the island, telling us... More

Coffee was very good and barista technique was excellent. Muffins and buns seem to run out early, 10am Sunday the cupboard was almost bare. We visited every morning of our 3 day trip to Ocracoke. Being from Seattle we have great coffee available around every corner. We are used to great customer service. At OCC, the conversations were with the... More

We have been here twice while riding bikes around the Island, and we like this place very much. They have good coffees that are cheaper then Starbucks. You would expect a small business like this on a Island to have higher prices, so it was a pleasant surprise to find out otherwise. There is some seating inside but they have... More
