Absolutely the most adorable bookstore/cottage/coffee shop you will ever set foot in! Their coffee is outstanding and you just can't beat going local (even if you are a tourist!). This place is a well kept secret.

The coffee here smelled so good. This is a well stocked book store. I particularly liked the North Carolina specific books they had there

We love this quaint little place! It has incredible coffee, a wonderful staff, and a small but great book selection! It's location on the sound is very peaceful, and there aren't really ever too many people. They have a nice sitting area, and good options for the kids too (their chocolate milk is wonderful!!)

A lovelly book shop coffee shop but very popular, ver small and not much seating. There is some outside seating around the Cottage but not helpful when it is raining. Located in a boutique style shopping centre; again not ideal with young kids. Nice to have seen the cottage but will not be going back.

What an awesome little book store! I love their blind date selection! Great idea! We were there for a book signing with Mary Kay Andrews. Sweet lady! She was very gracious despite the drenching rain.

Favorite place to get coffee in the Outer Banks. Best drink is an iced coffee with a shot of coconut flavoring--tastes just like the beach (and not artificial at all). They have an interesting and frequently changing selection of books, including many from local authors. They sell a variety of newspaper, but beware that in the summer the national papers... More
