We came into Forbes for a mid-afternoon coffee. I ALWAYS need decaf and the girl working was sooo nice and helped answer all of our questions. She was able to make me a decaf Night in Rodanthe (and I think she made it into a...latte instead of a frappe) with about half the sugar as "normal" (less pumps of flavor) and it was delicious! We also got some taffy and it was so good. The store is really cute! I could have purchased shirts and mugs and all sorts of things. But I was most impressed by the individual attention to get a coffee specialized for me and how tasty it was!More

Butter Pecan ice cream is outstanding. Customer service is as well. Clean and friendly service and loved looking at the assorted novelties.

We stopped at this shop and browsed the kites with the intention on buying one, the manager or owner in charge was giving a class to two or three new employees on customer etiquette . He assessed we was on the market for a kite...but not just any kite we wanted a nice one ! We wanted the dragon with the 6-8” wing span but they was out of stock so he steered us to the USA kite , he allowed me to bargain with him as if we was in a thrift shop and gave me a 5$ off coupon for my purchase since it was over 50$. He was business like but also super nice . I’ll be revisiting this shop when I go again in September . I then walked down the porch and went into Forbes coffee and fudge shop where I tasted chocolate covered fudge and bought some for my grandchildren and also purchased walnut fudge ! The smell of coffee will knock you down when you walk through the door which i didn’t care for but the taste of the fudge made up for the smell .More

Great fudge, and a huge assortment of salt water taffy. Also, lots of knick-knacks and t-shirts. We lucked out with end of season prices, too.

I did some reading on their website before visiting and looked forward to getting some good chocolates for gifts to take back after my time at the beach in Rodanthe. The store was staffed by two very young people with little interest in helping me...and less knowledge of their products. I asked about “cold packs” which the website was adamant folks should buy if the temp outside was over 70 degrees. They looked at me like I had 2 heads, had no clue what those were. I suffered through their disinterest and lack of knowledge and bought 3 boxes of chocolates. I included several pieces of chocolate covered bacon which I have had elsewhere and which was incredible (I thought it sounded awful till I tried it!). When i tasted it I nearly spit it out. Just awful. The other chocolates were good. Not amazing but good. I will not be going back when I return to the OBX next year.More

It’s always a must for me to stop here when we visit Hatteras Island! Fell in love with their specialty iced coffees about 8 years ago & come here every chance we get!! We love the Sandbar, Nor’ easter, Hip Hip and #40.

This is a made to order coffee shop with a lot of variety and good friendly service. The coffee is good, the candy is freshly made with all kinds of variety and the ice cream is good humor but at least a cold option on...a hot day. Candy is a bit pricey, but its a beach local, and the coffee is no more than Starbucks. Friendly staff that was willing to chat.More
