“Morning View - It's True”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2013

We asked at the hotel if there was a Starbucks close by. The ladies laughed and told us to go to Seven-Eleven. We asked a true Nags Head local and she recommended Morning View. Here's the skinny: Get you coffee fix at Morning View, but don't tell anyone. A regular cup of coffee at Morning View is significantly better than any cup you will get at Starbucks. For a mid-afternoon boost, try a double shot of expresso topped with the chocolate whipped cream. Forget the wi fi, turn off the smart phone, stop texting. Isolate yourself in this small cozy coffee joint and enjoy the brew. But promise, don't tell anyone where it is. A bunch of tourististas swarming this place with ruin it. BTW, the art work on the walls is very good, and for sale.

“Fresh Roast - Local Delight”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2012 via mobile

Whenever I get to OBX I make a point of going to Morning View for some fresh-roasted beans to take home. This cozy enclave has everything one needs in a small, local coffee shop. The pleasing aroma of fresh coffee, local art all over the walls, music, wi-fi, and friendly atmosphere. My preferred beans: Costa Rican Rainforest.

“Where the locals seem to go”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2012

As a tourist in the off-season, I found this place while searching on my Garmin. So glad I did. While enjoying a delicious cup of coffee and utilizing their free WiFi, I couldn't help but notice the number of customers who came in that the staff seemed to know. Friendly conversations, a warm and inviting sitting area, and of course, the great coffee, would certainly be a draw if I lived in the area. Sure hope I have the opportunity to return!

“One of my new favorites”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2012

Exceptionally good espresso and coffee drinks. The atmosphere is very warm and welcoming, the baristas knowledgable on all different types and variations of drinks. Their selection of baked goods also was quite impressive, the amount being sold and consumed while waiting for my drink was evidence enough of how good they must be. All in all, a definite "be back". One of the best Cafe' Breve' i've had. Well done Morning View, well done!
