Family had just arrived in the area to begin vacation and needed a bit of a break from the vehicle before checking into our cottage. The cafe was cool and comfortable, loved the porch and you will not hear any complaints on the cool treats from us.

Dropped in this morning for one coffee and one Chi-tea. The owner gave a friendly welcome and asked what we needed. It's a beautiful cafe and we both enjoyed our drinks.

We stopped in for some coffee and pastries before we headed down the road to the outer banks. The cinnamon roll was excellent, and the coffee kept us going until lunch!

My favorite iced coffee drink is their West 3rd! A great selection of coffee drinks and pastries. Nice place - all locations - to hang out and drink coffee, read a book or just chill with friends. Love their collection of magnets and other goodies by local artists for sale.

We had visited here previously and were looking forward to the great coffee that we remembered. We were not disappointed, and the cranberry-orange muffin was also fantastic! It's always nice when they offer to heat your pastry for you, too.

David and Kate took great care of us! The coffee and breakfast were perfect. The blueberry muffin and veggie cream cheese bagel are a must try!
