Love almost all of their items. The sweet potato fries, chicken salad on croissant, hoho cake, and tiramisu are to die for. Will return many times.

The best lunch place to go in Nags Head. The chicken salad was by far the best I've ever tasted, as was the potato corn soup. Loved the breakfast potatoes. Hubby had the shrimp and grits with 2 eggs on top. I tried the grits - amazing. We took 2 desserts to go. The cappucino though is just average, not... More

We went on our family vacation with 13 people. We called and they made room for us to all sit together. The food was excellent and the service was wonderful. All the servers are friendly and eager to meet your needs. I can't wait to go back. The kids even loved their breakfast!

Your sweet tooth will be more than satisfied with a visit to Cafe Lachine. They also pack to-go picnic lunches as well as offer eat-in service. This has become one of our favorite stops.

Our only disappointing restaurant experience. The interior is tired. When you enter there is a small counter area with a refrigerated shelves below the cash register with prepared food that look tired, fruit not quite fresh, etc. and then a dining area to the left. Nothing we ordered resembled the beautiful photos on their web site. Our server was not... More

Lunch for the two of us was very good. She had the Pear Salad. I had the Italian Sub. Both were very good. Sub was overloaded with cheese and meat - almost too much to handle. I was a great bit dissapointed that my favorite soda b everage was no longer available, as they had gone to bulk rather than... More

Stopped in quick en route to the beach and enjoyed a fantastic breakfast and friendly staff. High quality food but not pretentious. Would absolutely return!

You have got to eat hear while in the Outer Banks. The biscuits and gravy are fantastic! Try the different baked goods. They are all great.

Good place for a quick breakfast or lunch but the big surprise is the gourmet meals for dinner. Wow!

Cafe Lachine is a hidden gem in Nags Head. We just enjoyed a wonderful breakfast, I had stuffed french toast (brioche,) and my wife had eggs benedict (the eggs were perfect.) Great service from a charming staff. Highly recommend!

Thank Michael S
