Best kept secret in Nags Head!

Best kept secret that is right out in the open in Nags Head! Delicious, fresh made breakfast and lunch. My favorite is the eggs Benedict with crab cakes. Huge portions for a very reasonable price. Their boxed lunch is also the bomb - $10 for a sandwich, side, dessert and a drink! Favorite drink there is their iced tea with mint syrup. Give it a try - you'll be A believer!

The biscuit was the best I’ve ever had!

We read the reviews on Yelp and decided to try it. My husband went in and ordered take out. We all got the biscuit with chicken and fries. The biscuit as well as the chicken were fresh and delicious! The biscuit was the best I've ever had!

It’s rare for me to award a five. I think they hit the bar.

Very good shrimp and grits...
My wife had the crab cake, ham, egg, and cheese sandwich. They were out of brioche bread, so my sister had her French toast (with Mascarpone cheese) made with white bread - she thought it was awesome. My mom thought the gravy on the biscuits was too rich, so dad happily obliged finishing it.

And the food and coffee were great!

Stopped in for breakfast before heading back to VA. It took a while to get our food because one of the cooks didn't show up, but due to the wait the owners decided not to charge us. Very classy move. The other tables there got free meals as well. And the food and coffee were great! Extremely friendly staff. Thanks for the meal!!

Friendly service, great food, very accommodating

Friendly service, great food, very accommodating. I'm gluten free and dairy free and had a hard time while I was on vacation. I had a delicious almond milk latte and an amazing BLT on gluten free bread. I'm glad I read a review that the location is in a strip-mall and to not let it deter me. The inside is simple and the food and service are perfect!

Best breakfast in Nags Head!

Best breakfast in Nags Head! Chicken tender biscuit, shrimp and grits and stuffed French toast were excellent. Always add the sausage gravy to the grits ... Delish!!

Shrimp and grits were among the best I’ve had.

This place is amazing!! Do not get breakfast anywhere else in OBX. Shrimp and grits were among the best I've had. We originally were waiting for a table at the local greasy spoon next door didn't even know this place was here until we stumbled upon it. So glad we did.

We’ll definitely be back!

This is a delicious cafe! I ordered the crabcake sandwich on the herby bread with sweet potato fries and was not let down. Like other reviewers have stated, the crab cake contains a lot of meat and barely if any fillers. My boyfriend ordered the Reuben with french fries and loved it.

The employees are all very friendly and attentive. The atmosphere is nice with a lot of cool blues all over. We'll definitely be back with our next visit to OBX! This was well worth the drive from Corolla!

Enjoyed it very much

Enjoyed it very much for the brief 15 minutes I was here! Fresh coffee, breakfast sandwiches, scones and assorted bakery foods. They have a boxed lunch that comes with your choice of sandwich, side, and desert.

A bakery case that made my mouth water!

We had breakfast here on our way out of town. We enjoyed various biscuit sandwiches ( egg, chicken, and I had the soft shell crab) and muffins. Everything was delicious. They also offer some other baked goods and unique breakfast dishes like the marscapone stuffed french bread. They offer lunch too which also looked like it would be good but did not get the chance to try it. They have a bakery case stocked with cupcakes, cookies, tarts, cakes and pies that made my mouth water.

It. Was. Fabulous!

“Our family spent our Thanksgiving vacation in the Outer Banks, and we ordered out Thanksgiving dinner from y’all (primarily because one of our guests is gluten free and we know you take this seriously.)

It. Was. Fabulous!! By far the best turkey we have ever eaten. The sweet potato casserole, the stuffing bread pudding, the cranberry sauce: all great. And oh the ho-ho! Thank you so much for making our Thanksgiving great.”

Absolutely Delicious Johanna and Kelly were great! Very professional, timely, prepared, and the food was incredible! The team came to our house for a nice dinner during our last night of a bachelorette party. All of the courses were spaced out perfectly, all of the dishes were perfect temperature, and their prep/cleanup were impeccable! They were super nice and helped us take group photos

Best Brunch & Lunch! Amazing brunch spot for Sunday’s with delicious options. We shared biscuits and gravy, stuffed French toast, and a chicken biscuit. I can’t decide which one was better! I have also enjoyed picking up a quick lunch (buffalo chicken wrap!!) during the week. Always consistent, prices reasonable, and staff friendly. Yum yum yum!

Great Lunch Spot Went to lunch with a friend, service was great, food was delicious and atmosphere was just right! I would recommend this restaurant to anyone seeking a good lunch spot during the week because they are only open Monday through Friday!

Catering We often eat here for wonderful lunches and we recently had a large party catered. Everything was amazing! Food was delicious with lots of variety/choices & it was so easy too! We had plenty of food for about 50 people & everyone loved it. Highly recommend this great place!

A Welcome Addition on Roanoke Island! I had lunch today at Johanna's with a friend. I was so happy to go because I've been hearing about Johanna's for a few months and hadn't been there yet. It's a great spot and everything good I've heard - nice and relaxed, nicely tucked away, and a good atmosphere. My friend had a generous salad and iced tea while I could not resist the special - a fried green tomato and crab cake sandwich with pesto pasta. Delicious and also generous. I did not try them but there were some great looking desserts and the menu is varied and creative - and fresh tasting. I'm so glad I've finally eaten here!!(!

Friday night wine dinner We ventured well off of the beaten path to get to this relatively new restaurant. They have started wine dinners every Friday night. Tonight’s typical 3 course dinner with good wine served with each. AND all done in a room with a roaring fireplace. What a treat. Foods were tastefully prepared and presentations were well done. Everything hit the spot. Restaurant is open 11AM to 7PM, with Sushi Dinners on Thursday’s and Wine Dinners on Friday’s, both 6 to about 8PM, reservations required. Suggest you mark this place on your “must visit” list.

Amazing Find The husband and wife who own the place are both culinary school graduates and had their own place in Nags Head for 7 years. There is a wide variety of choices for every diet and appetite and even a cold case for items to grab on the go. Vegetarians and vegans can really enjoy the place. Food was delicious and fresh. I consider it now my go to place from Manteo or Nags Head. You can't go wrong !
