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

Stopped here after a workout at the 'Y' for a breakfast sandwich and a coffee. We liked the décor, kind of beachy and very clean. The sandwiches are well priced, around the 4-5$ range.

Waveriders has a great relaxed atmosphere and we enjoyed the place as much as the food. We went for lunch with two young kids and the staff were terrific. Sandwiches were great.

For a little place in a strip mall, Waveriders Cafe turned out to be quite a find. Clean and cute, the cafe sports an ample bar which we did not sample. We ordered sandwiches. My "Chuck" (turkey, feta, avocado, and spinach) was fresh and delicious! Recommended for lunch, probably good for an evening beer too.

Found a new favorite recently when we stopped at Waveriders for coffee and had the best breakfast sandwich I've had in years. Lots of options, you can pretty much design your own meal! Charming atmosphere, very helpful attentive staff and wonderful food and drink options.

This is a laid back place to get a bite to eat. Nice atmosphere and not a place that all tourists know about. Watch for them to have music a couple nights a week. They have beer on tap but not a full bar. Staff is nice and try their best to make your orders how you want.
