We had a fantastic healthy start in the morning. Excellent green smoothie with granola, berries and nuts. We even got sallads to go for a lunch picnic. I'm so happy we found this place!

I have a LOT of dietary restrictions, so finding a place that makes tasty food that I can eat is rare. This place was it! We ate there every day of our visit! Next time I'm in town will definitely come back.

Hands down the best "stop by for a treat" when visiting the Outer Banks. Mimosas, coffee, smoothies, breakfast casserole. Good food made with fresh ingredients. Service is superb - friendly casual atmosphere. We make a point to come in every day we're in Kitty Hawk.

Stopped here on our way home for breakfast. Arrived right at 730 opening time and owner worked fast and expertly to make our smoothies and bagels. Amazing veggie cream cheese and an egg and cheese sandwich! Very good. Will come again on our next trip.

Quirky seating options but the food is worth stopping by any time. I have been in her a number of times and have had a great meal every time. The coffee is good as well. Add it to your rotation!

I am so thankful that Neshla puts together such fresh wonderful salads at her cafe. My friend and I went there for lunch with Mary's granddaughter Emma Gonzalez and we shared a terrific lunch experience.
