What a great little place! Loved the atmosphere. Comfy chairs and tables inside and on the front porch. The coconut crunch was so tasty, just like everyone had said. It wasn't a strong flavor but just enough. Grabbed a few biscotti to dunk and sat...More

As someone who loves to visit local bookstores no matter where I travel, I was glad that we stopped in here. It was smaller than I anticipated (only about two aisles worth of books), but was nice and intimate. With lots of local books and...More

Rude staff and mediocre overpriced coffee. Cute building though. Better to go to the coffee place in Corolla in the main shopping center.

Bookstore is quite small but there was a decent selection. Was looking for more in terms of children's books. Mostly board and activity books rather than story books. Coffee was excellent as was the HUGE blueberry muffin which was more coffee cake like. I also...More

Duck Cottage feature a huge variety of coffee from straight up to their famous "Mucky Duck" -- served cold with caramel, chocolate and, of course, whip cream. Space is small with limited seating and a modest "bookstore." Nice place to start your day.
