Cafe Lachine is a hidden gem in Nags Head. We just enjoyed a wonderful breakfast, I had stuffed french toast (brioche,) and my wife had eggs benedict (the eggs were perfect.) Great service from a charming staff. Highly recommend!

Great wine and amazing dinner. The food is well prepared and fresh. Had the best poke tuna and scallop with cauliflower purée I have ever tasted in my life. I can't stop thinking about the depth of flavor in the short rib. This hidden gem puts out 5 star meals you will not forget.

I'm not sure you can even call this delectable breakfast dish French toast, it is unlike any I have ever had. Filled with delicate lemon marscapone & covered with a hint of maple syrup & fresh fruit, all I can say is yum! I all but licked the plate! Coffee is outstanding, service is just right. We drove from Avon,... More

The day we arrived we stopped here for lunch. The lunchbox special was my choice and the butternut squash soup was very tasty. The portion size was perfect. The day we left we stopped in for breakfast. We did the menu ala crate mainly because we watch portion sizes and we got exactly what we wanted for less money than... More

We r from MD; our friends from Richmond. We usually meet them at their beach home a couple times a year-we had a great time, riding out Hurricane Huron. We ate at several establishments; enjoyed every meal, trying a new one near our friends' home-Cafe Lachine. We enjoyed the experience so much, we went back the next day for breakfast.👍

Wonderful lunch with a great menu...tough to choose! Tea is fresh and service friendly, where no one is a stranger. Desserts are homemade and worth the extra calories! Seek out Cafe Lachine - you'll be happy that you did!

My 3 business associates and I spent (unexpectedly)over a year near Nags Head finishing a project. Cafe Lachine was our hands down favourite for breakfast , lunch and dinner. We all loved the food. Homemade all the way. We came so often that we called Kevin, the principal, Lachine! The owners and staff all wonderful people. I'm going to miss... More

This place was great. The berry lemonade was the best lemonade we have had down here. I got the shrimp po boy with potato salad and fruit salad. Everything tastes delicious, the potato salad is like a redskin potato salad. My friend got the pulled tacos, small portion for the tacos but said they were awesome. The waitress was also... More

Breakfast of champions. Wait was a bit long before b-fast came out. You can order a-la-carte. The French Toast was amazing. Fingerling potatoes however, could have remained over fire for a bit longer, they were on the raw-side. Art work was a distraction for the long wait. If you are in a big hurry, you will likely need to go... More
