It seems there are not many restaurants in the area serving breakfast however ACC bucks the trend and has a great selection of options from healthy yoghurt with fruit through omelettes, fry ups, smoothies and the obligatory caffeine hit however be aware it stops serving breakfast on the dot at 11am and changes to lunch menu. All in all a... More

If you follow the "locals", you will end up here. It's no wonder because the food is fresh and cooked great.

Very good daily breakfast special and a very friendly staff. I really like any place that gives you both grits and biscuits. It fills up fast since it is right across from the KOA and is really great value for families.

What a great local spot! Walk up inside they take your order. They bring it over to your table when I it's ready. We had crab corn chowder, crab cakes, grilled and fried, fried fish, blackened shrimp, sweet potato fries and cole slaw. It was all fabulous! Fresh, cooked perfect and the people that were working obviously loved to work... More

Friendly people, clean, good service and quick for the most part. Prices were extremely high. Across the street from the camp grounds, if the pricing was lower the place would explode with business.

We were hungry, and asked others coming out, "Was it good?". They responded, "Great, but pricey." So we went in, and it's more like a small cafe. You order at the register and they bring it to you. We went in for breakfast. The food was delicious, hit the spot, and the coffee is not made with the crunchy Island... More

Staying at the beach and we needed a takeout breakfast joint. Placed an order on the phone and went to pick it up about 15 minutes later. Breakfast sandwiches were spot on and delicious. Hot, fresh and filling. The place was hopping when we got there so we were glad we ordered it to go. Reasonable pricing, and I would... More

We liked the food and service and friendly staff and good prices. This was not far from our campground Ocean Waves and was in walkable distance.

Went to ACC on our annual OBX trip. Just like the last time the whole experience was perfect. I had the fish taco's and the wife had the fried shrimp basket. Both were fresh and delicious. Very little wait and food was delivered quickly after we ordered. Give ACC a try while in the area. You'll be glad you did.
