This was one of the nicest places I have been to in a long time. The owner, the bus boy,, waitress, hostess and everyone is out to make sure you have a nice meal.

We usually go here right when we arrive to get a good breakfast. It is busy and a long line, but it's well worth the wait. I get the pancake breakfast. It comes with eggs, potatoes, & your choice of meat. It's the best breakfast on the outer banks, great atmosphere too.

Saw a great review in the local "Coastal Times" about how "Stack 'em High Pancakes" was ALSO a terrific place for lunch. So with 2 'locals' who'd never been there before, spouse and I went for lunch. We arrived about 12:30 pm -- 90 mins before "Stack 'em High" closes at 2 pm. As we expected, there were only two... More

Hands down, this is the place to eat breakfast when you are visiting the Outer Banks in Kitty Hawk. The French toast is delicious, just get your strawberry toppings on the side. It's a busy place because the secret is out. But the servers are busy getting you what you need and are very friendly and attentive. Check it out... More

Even though it was nearly 11 am, I really wanted breakfast. This was one of the only places we could find that serves breakfast all the time. There was a bit of a line when we went in, but we ordered and were seated within about 10 minutes. They had very good iced tea, perfectly cooked over medium eggs, and... More

We ate breakfast here and thought the food was good but nothing spectacular. Wait staff was very friendly and we got our food quickly. Seemed to bea place that a lot of the locals eat at.
