“The apple "uglies" were very good”
Reviewed April 24, 2014

This bakery is "famous" for the apple uglies, which is fried doe with apples, cinnamon, pecans and frosting. The "ugliies" were very good...it is a meal in and of itself and tasty. Not sure that I would go out of my way for one, but it was very good. I was told that people build their vacations around visiting this location for the uglies...not sure I would go that far (lol), but it was very good. Looked like they had other baked goods, which I did not try. I did have the breakfast sandwich (bagel with egg, cheese and sausage), which was just average. Service was pleasant and fast. If you happen to be in the area, try an ugly. I wouldn't go out of my way for it though.

“Apple Uglies!”
Reviewed April 22, 2014

Worth the stop! This great little bakery has fantastic donuts, and you have to try the apple uglies! My son described them as apple cobbler wrapped in cinnamon bun--yum!

“Apple uglies”
Reviewed April 22, 2014

Wow. Wow. Wow. Best bakery item hands down. Also had the cinnamon roll which was good as well. Tried bagel sandwiches and they were well portioned for the price and fresh. Get there early as there's always a line. Worth it

“A Must Stop in Hatteras”
Reviewed April 17, 2014

So far we have visited 3x in the past week.
The Apple uglies are big, gooey, and delicious. $3.25 a piece is a bargain. They are huge. Take some home since they are just a fresh with just a pop in the microwave.
The breakfast burrito with bacon was $5.70 and was worth it. The tomatoes they used were amazing.
Overall this is a solid place that gets busy. They run out of stuff by early afternoon, so go early.
Definitely stop in and try, especially if you are by Hatteras Lighthouse. It is right around the bend.

“Outstanding!”
Reviewed April 9, 2014

The apple uglies are HUGE! The cinnamon rolls and HUGE! Both are about the size of a dinner plate, the apple uglies are probably bigger. All the pastries are to die for! This place is outstanding and they make huge quantities and still sell out! Great place, and a must try!
