Stumbled on this restaurant on a day when not much was open. Very efficient cashier and great food. Had the omelets in skillet served with grits, and a delicious biscuit. Would recommend this place highly, also had a reasonably priced selection of wine by bottle.

My wife club sandwich was $12 my chicken sandwich was $8 neither sandwich was worth the money. No one said anything to us the whole time we were in there we had to find someone that work there to find out how we order. When we left no one said anything. If you're looking for hospitality and good prices? not... More

We stopped here for breakfast. It was really different and quite unique. They had a nice array of different coffee choices. The restaurant is attached to a store with lovely varied and different items to buy, including nice wines etc. Definitely would recommend this as a good place to eat.

The pumpkin pancakes were great along with the hashbrowns. They have lovely lunch sandwiches to choose from too. I have eaten here before and wasn't disappointed either time.

Awesome breakfast and brunch options! Friendly and quick service! You can find food that is diet friendly or super indulgent. Their pastries are amazing...I recommend their cinnamon buns and scones.

The menu has great pictures but it's not of their food! The menu has a picture of pancakes with pecans apples and caramel. We got pancakes with pecans. When I complained the rude lady told me those were stock photos and they don't have pancakes like that. Maybe she should have mentioned that when I pointed to the picture when... More

We ate breakfast here midweek during our stay on the Outer Banks. Restaurant clean and orderly, but I did not like entering thru a bar/liquor store (sorry.) You ordered at a counter and then waited in the eating area for your food to be brought in. This felt more like a place to bring business associates rather than family dining.... More

Breakfast is served until 1pm. I had sweet potato pancakes (delicious!), eggs and bacon. You order your meal, the wait staff brings it to you. Lunch is also served; there is deli part where you can order it. They also sell sweets local to OBX and candies you haven't seen since you were a kid.

Delicious sandwiches, coffee, cookies and don't forget wine. It has a cute little store to pick up unique gifts or bottles wine.
