I come to the Outer Banks every year, discovered this place a few years ago. Excellent coffee and muffins (cranberry orange), friendly people always. A good place to chill with good stuff to eat and drink!

The hot chai latte is excellent: spicey, not too sweet. The muffins are very good also. Staff are very nice. Good seating area inside.
