Your sweet tooth will be more than satisfied with a visit to Cafe Lachine. They also pack to-go picnic lunches as well as offer eat-in service. This has become one of our favorite stops.

Our only disappointing restaurant experience. The interior is tired. When you enter there is a small counter area with a refrigerated shelves below the cash register with prepared food that look tired, fruit not quite fresh, etc. and then a dining area to the left. Nothing we ordered resembled the beautiful photos on their web site. Our server was not... More

Lunch for the two of us was very good. She had the Pear Salad. I had the Italian Sub. Both were very good. Sub was overloaded with cheese and meat - almost too much to handle. I was a great bit dissapointed that my favorite soda b everage was no longer available, as they had gone to bulk rather than... More

Stopped in quick en route to the beach and enjoyed a fantastic breakfast and friendly staff. High quality food but not pretentious. Would absolutely return!

You have got to eat hear while in the Outer Banks. The biscuits and gravy are fantastic! Try the different baked goods. They are all great.

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
