We stopped in for a specialty coffee while on vacation and met the manager of the several cafe's on the Outer banks. He was friendly and helpful. More than that, when we returned in a few days for coffee, he remembered exactly what were had and many other details about us. It was nice to be known - made us... More

We went to the coffee canister and filled our cups...it was the end of the canister....so it was a bit cold....but we drank it none he less. The owner went to fill the canister, we waited and waited...and the canister was... More

Love the atmosphere and the customer service is spectacular! The coconut Americana was delicious! Don't forget to check out the wine and merchandise. The store is clean, the coffee and pasties are uber tasty, and the customer service is unrivaled.

Quaint coffee house. One of our favorite spots. Locally & family run. Nice place to hang out with friends & chat. Variety of coffees & great mugs for sale. Recommend especially during off season as just about the only place open. They have some good but small variety if homemade breakfast treats.

Even though I live here, had never ventured in. Was with a visiting friend who desired a good cup of coffee so we went in. Had the best cup of coffee ever, a most delicious muffin that was obviously fresh and homemade and friendly service. Went back a second time that same week, same service, same great coffee and same... More

Warm yourself with good coffee, pastries, and, most of all, friendly and interested staff in serving you. It's also a quiet spot for good conversation. I recommend it highly.
