There’s another great OBX place that you need to try! Today I visited Art’s Place in Kitty Hawk for the first time. I didn’t know what I had been missing. It’s clearly a local OBX hangout and it feels like it would rival John’s Drive In, The Pier, Sam & Omies’ or Tortugas’ Lie.
I had seen it recommended in Best of the Beach for breakfast, but somehow just never made it there. After a barista friend recommended it to me again, I teamed up with a friend and decided to go this morning. I was a little nervous since their tagline is, “Local’s welcome, tourists tolerated, sometimes.”
This place is positively iconic. Stepping inside was like stepping back in Outer Banks time. You’ll just have to visit to see what I mean. The staff was very friendly and the food was WONDERFUL! We sat at the bar and ordered their breakfast sandwiches, which are “HUGE” (quoting the menu.) I can’t wait to go back for lunch or dinner. They were voted Best of the Beach for their burger in 2016.
We were invited (by same barista friends) to go to the Jazz night tonight, which is apparently wildly popular, but the evening filled up. Oh well, gives me something to look forward to next time.
Wishing you Fair Weather and Fond Memories,
