We stopped here to grab a quick breakfast on our way home. The biscuits were fresh and really good. Next time, we will try something else.More

We appreciate you taking the time to review us. We get up pretty early in the morning to make sure those biscuits are fresh for you at 5am and we wouldn't have it any other way! We hope you stop by the next time your...More

Wanted to love the food because the staff was really nice but the sandwiches ordered were super dry and just average. I would try again as the hot sandwiches looked better than cold we ordered to put in the cooler for the beach.More

Nice basic deli attached to a small hotel on the harbor. We ate looking out at fishing boats with the sound in the distance.

Large sandwiches served with delicious dill pickles and Zapp's chips. Quick service. Good value. Convenient for quick breakfast or lunch.

Thanks for the great review! It is a great pickle and what is a good sandwich if you have a bad pickle? Not on our watch!

Very casual. Order at counter. Small seating area. Probably a fair amount of take out. Good sandwiches, reasonable prices. Tries the tuna salad sandwich special (very good) and the shrimp burger (wanted it to be a little better). A good option in Hatteras Village.

We were fortunate to not be flooded by the storm like many places. The chips you enjoyed are made by Zapps and are indeed a very good chip. Thank you so much for taking the time to review us!

Eaten here several times. Usually for lunch before or after a half day charter. Sandwiches are very good...a little pricey, but not objectionable. Friendly staff. Recommended.

There are seats on the open porch but no table tops. There are also picnic tables near the water. If the closed in porch (A/C) is empty Molly is welcome there as well.
