La Dolce Vita

Posted by on May 21, 2012 in Dining | 0 comments

La Dolce Vita is an Italian restaurant in Tim Buck II in Corolla. I have been there a few times for lunch around spring break time, and I thought it was just okay. But I went there for dinner this week and was very impressed with the food and the atmosphere. I never noticed that there was outside seating before, but we sat outside on a really nice night. From the patio there is a view of the nearby pond with fountain, mini golf range, and The Currituck Sound in the background. Our meal started with a greens salad with an incredible house Italian dressing, and fresh baked bread with dipping oil. Our entrees were traditional pasta dinners. They also have many seafood/pasta dinners as well as many specialty gourmet pizzas. They have a kids menu. I’m looking forward to our next visit to La Dolce Vita.

You can reach them at 252-453-0069 or see their menu online at La Dolce Vita. From Eagles Landing, go out the main entrance, north on 12 for about a mile, left into Tim Buck II, and go to the back side of the center.

We usually find what we need at the Harris Teeter store in Corolla. But if you are looking for better beef, better seafood, and better produce along with a lot of personal attention for your shopping, then this is the place to go. Tommy’s is known to have the best crab cake on the Outer Banks.

Brew Thru

Brew ThruWhat a great concept – drive into a garage and order beer, soda,and snacks without getting out of your air conditioned car. Some say that it is not a trip to The Outer Banks without at least one visit to the Brew Thru. If you drive around The Outer Banks, you will see their stores in several locations.

Their annual T-Shirts are also an Outer Banks classic collector item. On the day before Hurricane Irene last Summer, this was the only place we found open in Corolla to replenish our supplies.

Brew Thru is located in Tim Buck II shopping center in Corolla. You can reach them at 252-453-2878 and you can learn more at their web site Brew-Thru.

Duck’s Cottage

Posted by on May 6, 2012 in Coffee | 0 comments

Duck’s Cottage is a bit too far to drive just for coffee, but if you are going to Duck or passing south through Duck you should stop at Duck’s Cottage for good coffee, espresso drinks, newspapers, books. We have been to Duck’s Cottage many times, mostly in the off season. I am mostly a black coffee drinker, but I do like the lattes at Duck’s Cottage.

It’s a nice place to just hang out. After you get your coffee, walk over to the boardwalk and enjoy the view of The Currituck Sound where you will see incredible sunsets. And there are some nice little shops along the boardwalk

Duck’s Cottage is located in The Waterfront Shops in Duck. You can reach them at 252-261-5510 or learn more at them at their web site Duck’s Cottage.

They are primarily open only for lunch, but on Mondays during the Summer, they serve dinner. The Monday dinners are a limited set of dinner meals plus the standard lunch menu options. The dinner menu is very reasonably priced. You will need reservations for the Monday evening dinner.

Pizzazz Pizza

Posted by on May 6, 2012 in Pizza, Take Out | 0 comments

Pizzazz is our most frequent place for pizza on our trips. It has a few tables, but is mostly for take out. They serve traditional style pizza starting with cheese and you add your toppings, and they serve specialty pizzas such as Greek, Hawaiian, California White. They also serve salads and subs.

They do deliver, but with the summer crowds, you will be better off picking up the pizza yourself. We usually find Pizzazz to be open much further into the off season than other pizza places in Corolla.

Pizzazz is located in the Harris Teeter shopping center which is walking distance from Eagles Landing. You can reach them at 252-453-8858, and you can see their menu online at Pizzazz Pizza.

We have rented bikes here several times, as recently as our Spring Break week in April 2012. They will deliver the bikes to your house if you rent for the week, but we recommend going to the shop to pick out the exact bikes that you want.

The bikes could be your beach transportation for the week to The Currituck Club beach access, but remember to cross the road carefully at the crosswalk. You will find many other items to rent such as chairs, umbrellas, cribs, etc.

Duck DonutsDuck Donuts is a very popular donut store in The Outer Banks. In the past people (including ourselves) drove down to Duck in the morning to buy a box of their donuts.

In 2011 they opened a Corolla store, and now they are walking distance from Eagles Landing. The donuts are made to order with the topping of your choice, and of course you can get coffee there too.

Duck Donuts is located in the Harris Teeter shopping center. You can learn more at Duck Donuts.

Bacchus has a great selection of fine wines, gourmet foods, imported cheeses, Angus beef, desserts, deli meats, and sandwiches.  We shop there often in the summer and the off season. They have a few tables for eating lunch at the store, and we have been there many times for lunch, but it is also a great place for buying your to-go lunches for your day at the beach. We also highly recommend their fresh salsa which is sold by the pound and is perfect for happy hour at the house. Bacchus has wine tasting events every Tuesday, and we have heard good reviews from some of our guests.

Outer Banks Coffee Company is conveniently located just a few doors down from Lighthouse Bagels, so it’s an easy stop while picking up your morning bagels. They sell coffee beans by the pound. They can grind it for you, but remember that there is a coffee bean grinder at Eagles Landing. They make and sell coffee drinks like Latte, Mocha, Cappuccino, and there is an in store seating area with free wifi. I usually just buy a pound of my beans and make it at home. My favorite bean is the Outer Banks Blend. They are open most of the year.

Lighthouse Bagels

Posted by on May 5, 2012 in Take Out | 0 comments

Lighthouse Bagels are absolutely awesome. Even people who believe that a good bagel can only be found in New York City believe that these are great bagels. They are made fresh in the store each morning. We usually buy a bag of bagels along with a tub of their home made cream cheese. They have a wide variety of bagels with different cream cheeses, but I always like their plain bagel with plain cream cheese. They also started making donuts this year. I sampled a few of their glazed donuts this year. Due to the popularity and reputation for great bagels, you’ll find the store packed in the morning, but they do a good job of moving people through the line quickly. There are a few picnic tables in front of the store.

Lighthouse Bagels is located in the Food Lion Shopping Center in Corolla. You can reach them at 252-453-9998 or learn more on their web site at Lighthouse Bagels.

Harris Teeter

Posted by on May 5, 2012 in Shopping | 0 comments

Harris Teeter is the closest and nicest grocery store to Eagles Landing. The meat, seafood, produce, and wine sections are top notch. They have a great deli section with Boars Head meat, and they make subs and sandwiches to order. This is the best and least expensive place to buy subs in Corolla. They have a great beer cooler and a pretty good wine selection. The store is open 24 hours in the summer season. The store is walking distance from the house.

Unlike some states where beer and wine must be sold in a special store, In North Carolina beer and wine are sold in grocery and convenience stores. Beer and wine cannot be sold before noon on Sundays, but I have never had a problem with that law. Also keep in mind that plastic bags were banned in The Outer Banks a couple years ago. So you need to either bring your own tote bags or us paper bags which are much harder to carry. You will also find a Red Box machine at the store for DVD rentals.

The crowds on check in day is always a major concern for vacationers in Corolla. Back when Food Lion was the only grocery store in Corolla, the Saturday crowd was so bad that the lines went all the way down the grocery aisles. Since Harris Teeter opened there is much more shopper capacity, and it has not been a problem. I have found wide open check out stations around 5:00pm on many Summer Saturdays.
