Smells scrumptious. Nice coastal feel and very friendly staff. I stopped in searching for a specific new release Charles Todd novel, and although I wasn't successful, we picked up a nice treat, some tea, and relaxed on the porch. Nice stop!

We love Duck's Cottage for early morning coffee. We take home the Coconut Crunch every chance we get. Nutty and very sweet with medium body and sweet aroma.

Cute little place!! I love how we stumbled upon these quaint little shops in Duck. We made an impromptu stop here and with teenage girls we couldn't get away from the boutiques.
