Literally the best sandwich I have EVER eaten- seriously. I am vegan but my boyfriend is not, and he agrees! TONS of vegetables, perfectly marinated tofu, all made with love- I am absolutely addicted. *If you are into fresh juices try them all- you won't be disappointed. So grateful that this little oasis is located in the Outer Banks...my one... More

Love this place! Stop in everyday when we vacation in OBX. Coffee is great, food is wonderful and staff couldn't be friendlier.

We read a quick review about this place, so instead of eating at the hotel restaurant, we gave this place a try. This place has many vegetarian and organic healthy food and drink options. I was just going to get a cup of coffee, but ended up getting quiche. OMG, it was very tasty. It was worth $7. We felt... More

In one of the many shopping strips along 158 in the Outer Banks, stopped in for some coffee to start my morning and was pleasantly surprised. Was greeted with a friendly smile and lady at the counter. She was super friendly and very attentive on making sure she was helping my coffee needs for the morning :). It is a... More

This is the place to stop for coffee and some awesome paninis. Service is great and coffee incredible! Had the soup of the day, a lentil and quinoa soup, and it was incredibly tasty. This is the place to go around here for just a cup of coffee or a full on lunch. You won't be disappointed.

We were looking for a local coffee shop on our trip to the OBX. This place is not just local, it is also great. I had the best iced coffee and their Chocolate Chip Muffins are the bomb!

The bean is the best place to start the day with your favorite coffee or pick from their menu. In the summer I love the mocha smoothie. It is a coffee milkshake to die for - ask them to make it thick. Even though it is in a strip mall it has a cool vibe. My wife doesn't like coffee... More

Great local spot for good coffee, shakes, etc. How you would expect a coffee shop to be in NYC. Lots of tats and piercings to go along with your excellently prepared wake up call.

If you want to slow down and have a light, healthy lunch, and certainly if you are looking for a tasty vegetarian option, this place is perfect. It's very small, and has the boho-hippie feel of many good, creative little deli shops; understanding that, my hummus/veggie sandwich was just perfect. There are non-vegetarian options as well, but we didn't get... More
