Tiny hole in the wall with an outdoor seating area and bar that's shaded by an oak tree. Lots of seating. A grassy area was roped off, perhaps they use it for a dance floor? An eclectic collection of beach debris and old vehicles hangs...More

We're a laid back, locally owned and operated coffee shop and beer garden located right in the heart of Corolla, NC. Enjoy a delicious coffee or espresso drink in the morning, or cool down with a frappe or smoothie after your morning walk or run. Our spacious patio will allow you some shade from a hot day while you relax under our live oak where you can also check out The Beer Garden. The Beer Garden offers 60+ craft and domestic draft, bottled, & canned beers, including 12 on tap and around a dozen local brews from NC. We serve several varieties of house wines by the glass or enjoy our select mini/half bottles of wine as well. There's a little bit for everyone here! We're family and four-legged friendly, so bring your friends and family and enjoy a game of corn hole one afternoon, or come back for our summer live music every Tuesday - Thursday through Labor Day weekend. We hope to see you all soon! Closed for the season but will reopen in May 2017!
