Great staff, inventive vibe, excellent options. Kick back and relax on a sofa or at a table. They have a great room off the main dining room for small groups or business meetings. You're going to love it!

Had breakfast here the morning of 31 August. I thought the coffee was Great & the breakfast sandwiches were tasty. However, it is not a traditional breakfast restaurant more a sandwich place. Would I go back...yes, in fact I went back for their coffee.

With a great selection of coffees and other breakfast beverages (I don't know all the lingo, but if it has to do with latte or frappe or cappuccino or triple skinny cow marinated mocha they have it on the menu), pastries and breakfast sandwiches, Waveriders is worth a visit; it will probably turn into more than one. Fun place to... More

This was the most pleasant surprise. I was looking for a clean and updated cafe for lunch, and this nailed it! My mozzarella sandwich was the perfect balance of every ingredient, and I had a lovely English Toffee iced coffee to accompany it. Highly recommend. Nice hide out in the sun.

Came here with my family. We all got sandwiches and they were all delicious! The atmosphere is super comfortable and welcoming. It's a coffee shop/sandwich place/bar. They have a small but nice selection of beers. Service was friendly and quick. I'd definitely recommend!

Awesome place to bring your dog! Decided to go there our second day at Nags Head to get breakfast and coffee...the breakfast sandwiches and coffee was amazing! The outdoor patio area is very cozy and the umbrellas at the tables provide great shade. After finding out there was some good music (open mic with blues) that Thursday we stopped by... More
