Hatteras Restaurants: Breakfast Spots

Whether you want breakfast to be a big, sit-down affair, or you’re looking for a grab-and-go goodie to the beach, Hatteras restaurants have the eggs and bacon or scones and coffee to satisfy. Several restaurants here open early for breakfast, with American classics, such as stacks of pancakes, eggs, bacon and breakfast burritos. For a classic taste of the South, head to locally loved carry-out spots for a biscuit sandwich. For those of us who crave sweets in the mornings, plan to have breakfast at a Hatteras Island restaurant. Bakeries, coffee shops and other eateries draw crowds with home-baked fritters cinnamon rolls, fritters, muffins and more. Don’t forget the cup of coffee or latte to go with them.
