Such a great place with awesome decor. My sandwich was tasty and the ginger iced tea really hit the spot. If you have the chance, try the bread pudding. It's absolutely delicious!

We stopped here every morning of our weeklong trip to OBX. Great juice selection, as well as delicious sandwiches. Call ahead and they'll have your order waiting for you!

I live locally here and this is my favorite place for breakfast, lunch, and dinner now. I greatly appreciate that they provide excellent customer service and high quality meals which are full of nutrients, vitamins and are very healthy and delicious. The atmosphere is very pleasant, everything looks very fresh and clean. Cool A/C feels great on a hot summer day. Good music playing and beautiful artwork on the walls. The owner and the other ladies who work there are very friendly and sweet. Even if you are by yourself you won't feel lonely there. If you have a dog, you can also have a meal at a table outside with your best friend near you. The owner is very thoughtful and does the best possible to create a great dining experience for the guests.

I have a dairy allergy and it is always difficult to find good meals to eat when traveling, often ending up with me in disappointment due to extremely limited menu options (e.g., salad, plain chips, or french fries). Given that it is one of the top 10 vegan restaurants to visit within the area, my partner and I stopped by upon arriving to the OBX for lunch. As expected, this restaur ant/bistro had MANY delicious dairy-free and vegan food and drink options. The owner was kind, friendly, and super generous. We ordered a turkish pastry, a juice, and a dairy-free sandwich. The food was definitely fresh and of quality. On top of this, the owner offered us various samples of food and drinks. We would have otherwise have returned for dinner but our day's plan got thrown off!

I highly recommend this place if you want a delicious and healthy meal friendly to folks with food allergies AND be in good company :)

FYI this restaurant's sign is easy to miss, especially when driving. Look for signs that say COFFEE or CAFE (forgot which one) in that strip mall.

A nice healthy meal away from home is always a treat on the road. The juices are delicious. That pretty much goes for the sandwiches and salads too. Get away from the larger restaurants, take a visit and chat with the friendly owner. Kale never has tasted so good.
