About the restaurant
Cafe Pamlico's mission is to provide a world class dining experience through exceptional food, outstanding detail oriented service, an inspired wine and cocktail program, and gracious attentive Southern hospitality. Our contemporary coastal cuisine is driven by locally sourced seafood, meats, and produce. Our menu changes frequently in accordance with the fresh ingredients our chefs discover on the island, most notably the fresh local seafood we feature. The fish we serve each evening is frequently taken from the nets of friends that very morning. We are committed to supporting local farmers and artisan food producers first, sustainable resources second, and organic third. The Cafe serves elegant gourmet dinners prepared by our world class chefs from four to seven nights each week, depending on season. Dinner reservations are highly recommended, as the restaurant is often filled to capacity by reservation. We are open to the public every morning for our famous casually elegant breakfasts, called "Best on the Outer Banks" by National Geographic Traveler. Cafe Pamlico is committed to extending gracious hospitality beyond the walls of our restaurant and into the community. We manage our organization in an ecologically sensitive and economically sustainable manner, driven by genuine concern for our environment and the jobs we create in our community, and always in accordance with the customer satisfaction policies of our business model. We invite you to learn more about Cafe Pamlico by downloading our current brochure, or by getting in touch with us. Whether dining in one of our intimate well appointed dining rooms, at our elegant copper topped bar, or al fresco on one of our soundfront decks, you will experience exceptional food and service which the Times of London described as "Fabulous" while surrounded by the natural beauty and grandeur of the Pamlico Sound and the Cape Hatteras National Seashore.

Wonderful experience from start to finish. Everyone was so professional and kind, the view from the patio is breathtaking and the service is elegant but not stuffy. The food quality is also stellar. Drink options are creative and fun, and the live music is perfectly ambient. The only thing we noticed that wasn’t perfect was the slight wait for drinks but the server did come and tell us the bartender was backed up. We were a group of 11 so I’m sure it was a tough on the staff. Overall, beautiful meal and I would go back here a million times.

It was a very special Fathers Day for our family and Solstice did not disappoint. Our needs were met with a seaside table, waitress was attentive and friendly and the food was spectacular. After dinner easy access to the beach was enjoyable. Only wish was to have more selection for the dessert menu.
