Got trapped in the Grayson winterstorm at Nags Head and decided to give it a try. The food and service were really amazing. The tomato soup, the shrimp with grits and the braised portobello were just perfect.More

The food here is phenomenal! Only been there once, but it was amazing. Little tight, but it didn't bother us. My expectations were low, as it is in a non descript mini-mall shopping center, but inside is nicely done.

Our desserts are freshly baked daily. We don't always have the same offerings, however, the flourless cake often is offered. I can't guarantee it, but Ibcan guarantee what we have will be fresh. Cheers and bon appetit!
