Delicious & HEALTHY breakfast today while visiting in OBX. Hard to eat healthy when you eat out but my "Avacado toast" w sweet potato slices as the "toast" w an over easy egg & avocado on top (more like guacamole) w a side of Taylor pork roll for a treat. Great find!

My husband and I had lunch there. It was very good. I had the brie salad, delicious chai tea, and a slice of sinfully good gluten free chocolate cake. My husband had a vegetable and sausage soup, a sandwich, and apple pie. They do have gluten free bread and a few other gluten free items.

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.

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.
