Outer Banks Food & Drink

Everything tastes better at the beach.

Groceries, restaurants, and nightlife are just a short drive away from the 4x4 beaches, in Corolla, the northernmost town on Hwy 12 before the hard road ends.

Lighthouse Bagels & Deli

Restaurants and Catering

Our Featured Favorite:
Lighthouse Bagels. Best Bagels in the World, and so much more! For breakfast, choose from dozens of made-from-scratch bagels with your spread of choice, or opt for a breakfast sandwich, baked goods, or homemade donuts. For lunch, choose from their delicious sandwiches, subs, and salads, or build your own sandwich on a bagel, ciabatta, or your choice of rolls. Located in Monteray Plaza.


Corolla Restaurant Guide - Enjoy the variety and ask your server about their live music and entertainment schedule – restaurants and bars are host to the majority of Corolla’s night life!


Kitchen Witch - Catering in the 4x4 area.

OBX Butcher Block

Butcher Block. Stop by to fill your fridge with fresh meat, local seafood, Boar’s Head deli supplies, and fresh deli salads.
