On our last morning in OBX, we hit up Island Smoothie for healthy fuel to start the day. I ordered the Ocean Breeze Acai Bowl and my husband opted for the Pirate’s Booty. Our order took a bit of time for them to complete, however...we literally walked through the doors as they opened. That was fine by us - we enjoyed sitting at a reclaimed boat-wood table, waking up to the world and adjusting to things like sunlight, gravity, other humans. (Sidebar: when reviews state that there is a long wait for food, that is sort of my “go there” indicator. Freshly prepared food takes time and love. As it should.) Their menu was extensive; offering everything from avocado toast to poke bowls to superfood additions. Island Smoothie is an excellent local spot for health-conscious travelers and/or simply lovers of good food.More

We ate here and had an order of 12 people. The cashier was great! We received 2 incorrect sandwiches....told the cashier that we were missing two sandwiches, and received 2 incorrect sandwiches. He said he was sorry and turned around and told the cook...who said...to him "well, did he check all the other bags?"...i heard all of this and responded "yes, We did check all the other bags, there were two incorrect sandwiches made."....then told him which ones were missing....he acted like WE had done something wrong and said "FINE! I WILL MAKE ANOTHER COUPLE SANDWICHES!"....then proceeded to come out into the eat in area and confront me and ask me what sandwiches were missing. I had already told him, and the cashier already told him, he just wanted to come out and confront me. Then he walked back and talked to another cook while pointing me out to that cook. Needless to say, I didn't eat the second sandwich he prepared for me. I WILL NEVER GO HERE AGAIN AND SUGGEST YOU DO NOT EITHER! PLENTY OF OTHER PLACES TO EAT WHERE THE COOK DOESN'T HAVE AN ATTITUDE.More

Place was busy and service was up to the challenge. Quick to take orders and drinks/bowls came out shortly after. Everyone was super friendly. Food and smoothies were high quality and very tasty.

Good vegan options. Good non-vegan options. We had the strawberry/banana smoothie, Avocado toast, and Turkey/Avocado sandwich... all were excellent. Friendly staff. 100%/A sanitary grade from the health department. Currently take-out only. Good for family lunch.

We first went to Island Smoothie in 2015 when we stayed in Corolla and went three times in our week long visit. When we came back down in 2018 we stayed in Kitty Hawk but made it a point to drive all the way over...to get some delicious smoothies. The workers are super nice and helpful and the smoothies are refreshing and amazing. I will always come here on our visits.More

Stopped for a quick bite. I ordered from a desk out front and the food was brought to my car. Great social distancing practices. I had the bacon and avocado toast and a mango smoothie. Both excellent. Will definitely come back for more.

My wife and I stopped here for some smoothies after reading the rave reviews from other customers. We were not disappointed! The individual that helped us was great and suggested the peach smoothie, which my wife loved. I had the strawberry banana, that was excellent...too.More

I love their smoothies and am very impressed with how they have adapted to a pandemic. They offer online ordering and you pick your food up from an outdoor counter. Everyone wears a mask, and it's obvious that they are taking health and hygiene seriously....I had only ordered from them a few times in the past, but this summer they have become my go-to spot. I love how fast and easy it is to snag some lunch on my way to work. The orange sherbet smoothie and the dreamsicle smoothie are my two favorites.More

Sunset Açaí Bowl was delicious!!! Friends enjoyed the Ocean Breeze Açaí Bowl. Big enough for a meal or split with someone as a snack. Suggestion: Ribs in bottom of plastic bowl trap peanut butter; maybe get different bowl or put peanut butter at top.

We stop here every year when we stay in the outer banks. Everything that we get is always delicious. I love the acai bowls. They're the best around! The service is a little slow, but it is worth the wait!

This place is top notch! Amazing smoothies, bowls and sandwiches. My husband and I were at OBX this past week and visited the place 5 days in a row, because we couldn’t get enough! The staff is super friendly, makes everything to order and the...smoothies are out of this world. I even loved the espresso smoothie and I don’t drink coffee! My husband couldn’t stop raving about the bowls. We hope to see you next year!! Thank you!!More

I’m obsessed with Island Smoothie, they have so many different flavors of smoothies and açaí bowls and they are all DELICIOUS! They’re literally the best smoothies I’ve ever had and I’m so sad that they are not local to my hometown. When I’m on vacation...in OBX, I go to Island Smoothie everyday and get something from here. It’s my go-to place for something refreshing and yummy! I even packed 2 for the ride home back to Massachusetts, and luckily with my cooler they stayed cold and were amazing for my trip back. I cannot recommend Island Smoothie enough! Favorite flavors for you to try: Peach, dreamsicle, and morning espresso! Give em a try, you’ll be happy you did!More

Absolutely the best açaí bowls and smoothies in town! Avocado toast and nitro cold brew is a great breakfast option too! A must stop for everyone! I promise you will not be disappointed! I wish they would open a shop in VA Beach!
