On an overnight stay on Ocracoke Island with Mrs. Bfast w/Nick, we found ourselves brunching our way around the island in the morning. You need good coffee to start the day, and it’s nice to say that Ocracoke has a few good options to choose from.

Our first coffee stop – yes, our first – was right down the road from our hotel, on the main street of the small island village. We were automatically drawn to Live Oak Coffee because of their use of scrumptrulescent on their signage. (If you don’t get the reference, watch the SNL video here.)

This is the second season for Live Oak, and there’s still a small sense of the shop getting on its feet. But the high quality coffee and all the snacks and accoutrement are there.

They also have the coffee shop seating and wifi if you need a break or a study spot, plus the comfortable chairs inside and out front if you’re just lounging with an iced coffee. Nothing says relaxing on the island like sitting in big wooden Adirondack chairs while sipping a cold iced coffee. Also note that Live Oak serves responsibly-sourced Counter Culture Coffee.

So now you know: if you’re staying on the island and need to get your morning jump-started, just walk down the main drag until you find Live Oak!
