Nestled in downtown Manteo, this spot serves the spectrum of specialty coffee drinks, both hot and cold. Pair your beverage with fresh bakery items such as scones and biscotti or cookies and treats from Sweater Box Confections. Or try a smoothie or some of their homemade cream-cheese spreads on a Barrier Island Bagel. Open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m., this cafe offers a quick breakfast on the run or a place to relax while enjoying a muffin and a morning cup. Outdoor seating is available. Vineyards on the Scuppernong from Columbia, N.C., operates a tasting station here, and if you find something you like you can buy a bottle of their wine. The folks who run this little gem are particularly friendly.
