i lived for years in the NNK and The Local was one of my favorite spots. Recently, I was able to return and chose lunch at The Local. Great, honest food and wonderful staff. The panini sandwiches need to stay on the griddle longer to melt the cheese totally, but The Carter Club remains my favorite. The staff is fairly... More

Great eating resource for morning, noon or take out. There are few eating establishments in this area and you would think the service and quality would suffer, but not here. Much better that a "Starbucks" and more options.

The scene: Looking for a cheap (and local) breakfast as an alternative to what was provided at the Tides Inn. The experience: A handful of locals milled about. Interior is quaint, inviting. They offer a selection of coffee, pastries, sandwiches, salads. After drinking a lot of coffee lately, I opted to get some hot cider instead. The cider came out... More

Nice place for coffee light fare. Really nice. Too noisy inside. Best to sit outside if possible. Compressors from refrigeration equipment is noise source need to moved or compressors replaced with those from the 20th century.

This little bistro features a delightful menu combining local fare and traditional favorites. Try to cajole the owner into making some of her southern pimento cheese. It's the best you will ever eat!

Stopped in for a cup of coffee and breakfast sandwich - both delicious! It was quite busy, but the staff is efficient, friendly, and accurate. Beware - The coffee is quite strong! They have a few tables inside as well as a few outside. Also serve home made ice cream , which we didn't try. FYI - Open every day... More

Truly delicious mugs of coffee. If you like the mug, you can buy it. I did! Pretty, high-ceilinged bathroom, too. Friendly counter-help, but the manager (owner?) didn't seem to want to interact with the customers.

Went to The Local twice in one weekend. Great coffee spot and lots of innovative sandwiches. Nice atmosphere. Great for a lazy Sunday morning.

Nice little place for breakfast or lunch. We had lunch here, and my panini was delicious. My son wasn't thrilled with the strawberry jam on his PB&J and the "grilled cheese" is only warmed bread & cheese, but everyone ate their meal. An easy bike ride from The Tides Inn.

We ate breakfast here every morning when we were visiting the area; I regret that we didn't stay for lunch too! The food is fresh, filling, and good; the coffee excellent, the service friendly and efficient. The Local has an appealing charm without being self-consciously cute. And it's clear the staff have a fine rapport with the regulars.
