Even before it was remodeled, this cafe offered the island's best breakfast. We look forward to the sausage gravy well in advance of our visits. Everything served is fresh and delicious. Our daughter's only disappointment is that there are no espresso drinks offered anymore.

I liked having a nice market on the island. Remember in the off season that the market closes pretty early. The cafe serves a nice breakfast.

Not in the market proper, but there is outdoor seating and places to leave your dogs if you need to do a quick shop. BHI is dog friendly.

The Maritime Market is Bald Head Island's only full-service grocery store, offering fresh produce, Prime Beef, and fresh NC seafood, along with a wide selection of craft beers, fine wines & a comprehensive selection of groceries. The Market also features a full-service deli with sliced meats, artisan cheeses & fresh-baked breads, and serves a full breakfast & lunch menu daily in our Cafe. During the high season, we also serve freshly baked artisan pizza and provide hand-dipped ice creams and other frozen treats. The Market is the "pot-bellied stove" of the island - a social gathering place where islanders & visitors meet, conspire & socialize. Each month on the full moon, The Market hosts the "Howl at the Moon Sunset/Moonrise Party on East Beach - an island tradition that attracts upwards of 1000 or more people during the summer events, and more intimate crowds of around 50 people during the cool winter months.
