A quaint little coffee shop tucked away in the Dunes Shops mini strip mall, on the main OBX road. Very limited seating inside and a couple seats outside. They offer soups, salads, panini, wraps, sandwiches, breakfast items, smoothies, juices, speciality coffees and ice cream drinks....More

We had a fantastic healthy start in the morning. Excellent green smoothie with granola, berries and nuts. We even got sallads to go for a lunch picnic. I'm so happy we found this place!

I have a LOT of dietary restrictions, so finding a place that makes tasty food that I can eat is rare. This place was it! We ate there every day of our visit! Next time I'm in town will definitely come back.

Hands down the best "stop by for a treat" when visiting the Outer Banks. Mimosas, coffee, smoothies, breakfast casserole. Good food made with fresh ingredients. Service is superb - friendly casual atmosphere. We make a point to come in every day we're in Kitty Hawk.
