Enjoyed a mid morning breakfast with my wife. We were seated right away with hot coffee immediately. Our orders of sausage gravy biscuits and pancakes with bacon was awesome and the portions were huge. Great start to the day.

We ate here multiple times on a short stay in Ocracoke. Tried pancakes (pecan and plain), French toast, eggs, biscuits, grits, and oatmeal. Great food across the board. Someone in town told us about this place, and it was a great recommendation!

Laid-back restaurant, typical menu, great choice for breakfast! Ocracoke Village has a number of restaurants from which to choose for lunch or dinner, but there aren't many places serving breakfast. This one is good, quick, and affordable.

Decadent biscuits and gravy or more healthy egg white omelettes, no better way to start your day. Fast, friendly service.. an Island Tradition!

Extremely quick service, even with very large group (18). Staff is always friendly which is why we're there nearly every morning of vacation

I am almost 100% certain they are open year round. I used to work, from time-to-time, with the school there in the winter months and I ate there quite often. If you want to make sure, call them (252) 928-5701 and ask. You... More
