This is a great little coffee shop. The owner was very friendly and appreciated our business. The coffee shop is open early and that's how we originally ended up there. This time of year it was difficult to find places open before 10 AM.

We wanted to try some local coffee for a change instead of the usually Star Bucks. The service is poor and this because there is only 1 person working who spoke English as a second language. The price of 1 decaf and 1 ice coffee was $8.00 ? Overall I would drive to Harris Tweeter where there is a Star... More

I stopped in for the first time today to get an iced coffee. I agree that the iced coffee was a little pricier than I usually pay, but it didn't really bother me. What did bother me was the fact that the employee didn't put enough ice in it. I went back to ask for a small cup of ice... More

OBXCOFFEE, Owner at Outer Banks Coffee Company, responded to this review

Laura, I appreciate your feedback and I also feel that there must be some misunderstanding. If your drink did not have enough ice in it, then without question of course we would put more ice in the drink for you. If you didn't realize that the drink was light on ice when you accepted it, you can easily just bring... More

Hi Wes, Just to let you know that we've never experienced someone so rude when customers are buying your products. We went into your coffee store 3 times & came out each time shocked at how rude you are. I just went in to buy a couple of drinks & you rudely / sarcastically said 'thank you' to me because... More

Stopped in for a cup of iced coffee. Went with an iced mocha latte. The coffee was very good and the staff was nice. Cool little shop. The coffee was expensive but nothing too crazy.

I visited here in July while staying in Corolla for a family vacation. The place was a bit strange but we weren't staying to drink our coffee so it wasn't that big of a deal. However, the coffee wasn't that good. It wasn't horrible but I've had much better coffee at many other places. Overall, I wasn't impressed and I... More

Hey Alex, Well after 7 months of hibernation it's great to see that you decided to reminisce and post some reviews. I can't say that we have ever been called "Strange" before, but then again, I suppose it’s all based on expectations. If you are expecting the normal corporate sterile uniformed Starbucks venue or the DD uniformed clinical environment then... More

i stopped in here on Friday morning for a quick refill of coffee and saw a glazed cinnamon bun and asked for it along with my coffee. i had my own cup--when i was told the bill $8.60+ i just paid it, but frankly that is ridiculous pricing.

All I had was a coffee. Simple. It was fresh tasting and the staff were friendly. I did try to go again on Friday to get a coffee, but it was closed at 2pm...so not sure why.

We roast our own coffee in house and have several specialized blends. Our coffee is roasted fresh, brewed fresh and served fresh. Beans are sold whole or ground and on-line. We serve all styles of espresso drinks, lattes, cappuccinos as well as cold drinks including smoothies and frappes. There is a large selection of pastries, cookies and handmade candies. A cozy fun Costa Rican atmosphere. We are open early. Stop by and try a brew.
