Unique interior, offering a wide selection of pastries, coffee, smoothies all the way to oil and vinegar, books, dessert and a lounging area. Free wifi and reasonable prices for a house blend. Not terrible.

My family comes to Emerald Isle every year and our family rides bikes down to this smoothie shop almost every morning. Awesome smoothies and selection of pastries.

Great little coffee shop - a huge selection of drinks, lots of seating, and great bagels. I love coffee shops that have a lot of drink options and this one has them - iced, shakes, hot coffee, and tea galore.
