Nice little coffe shop and friendly staff. Good bagels, pastries. If you enjoy a real good cup of coffee and do not mind spending several dollars for it, give it a try. Cheeper to brew coffee at home but a nice treat once in a while.

The friendly people at this shop and the artsy atmosphere coupled with the great coffee, specialty coffee/tea drinks and homemade baked goods made this my favorite morning spot each morning of our vacation here in OBX.

Super cute arsty cafe - serves great coffee drinks, pastries and yogurt bowls. We ordered the spinach feta croissant and the yogurt bowl with chia seeds, hemp seeds and pecans = YUM! Cool art on the walls too.

We loved that this restaurant offered many options for coffee and tea. The coffee and tea drinks we tried were delicious.

The coffee is wonderful and the pastries are delicious! I like the eclectic art pieces they have around by local artists. The place invites you to sit and relax.

All three locations are great but we usually stop in at the Manteo location. The store is spacious and well-decorated. The coffee is always excellent. I can see why Starbucks cannot make a dent in OBX. The pastries are tasty and always fresh. The service is efficient yet personable. We stop in numerous times during our summer week. Don't miss...

Very disappointing... The staff was unfriendly, seemed not to want to be there, was not helpful, and was very slow. We expected fresh coffee and a choice of varieties. They had 3 premade coffees in the pump dispensers. When asked what kind of coffee they had, the cashier just pointed in a general direction and said something like "over there."... More
