“Essential Ocracoke”
Reviewed November 27, 2013

This place is where the natives and residents, as well as tourists, come for their coffee and conversation. I went three mornings in a row during my stay. And had the best vanilla latte ever, all three times. Same price as a Starbucks. Baked goods were yummy, even ones in the day-old basket for just 1.25. I loved just sitting and watching people come in and out. The regulars would get their refill and stuff a dollar in the box for that. Their staff are part of this place's charm - great sense of humor and wanting to please, creating waves or other designs to top off the latte. Lots of outdoor seating and I was able to sit out one of the days. The other two were inside cold-weather days. They even had a major award 'leg lamp' perched on top of their electric fireplace. ;)
