Breakfast, drive to Buxton, go to Orange Blossom Bakery. Also consider Buxton Munch for lunch or pick up food their late and have an early dinner.

Gidget’s in Avon has good pizza.

Oceana's in Avon serve both


RE: Staying in Avon this weekend




I second the Orange Blossom in Buxton- get an apple ugly. For dinner Pangea near the pier in Avon is good


RE: Staying in Avon this weekend




Gidgets and La Fogata were great for carry out dinners when we where there in June. We ate all our breakfasts at the house so I can't give you personal experiences but there are several bakeries or breakfast places like Island Bakery, Duck Donuts that have good reputations on here. We also got carry out from Froggy Dog. It was ok but I think it did not travel well, I think it would have been better if it was served fresh, but that's not an option at least for us right now. Once this all blows over, I plan on eating at Froggy Dog. Safe travels and hope you have a great time.

I'm always amazed that someone hasn't come up with the idea of a food truck/ hot dog cart type concept that sells simple southern breakfast sandwiches on the side of 12.

I would think you'd make a killing selling BECs, sausage biscuits, etc. for $3.

Sorry, there will never be food trucks on the side of NC12, or any other road. Way too dangerous! Add the cars pulled up in front and behind the food truck and people getting out on the driver's side to get food, and you might as well just park the ambulance and EMTs there too.

Food trucks have been tried for a few years on OBX, and there has been a Battle of the Food Trucks for the past few years in the spring (or fall?) at the Event Site in Nags Head. But food trucks haven't made money here, and no one really wants them parking in their parking lots for fairly obvious reasons: congestion, trash, competition.

As for $3 breakfast sandwiches, I don't see one cent of profit at that price. Unless they can sell coffee at $10 for a small cup.

I think he was probably suggesting in a parking lot off of 12. There used to be one in Rodanthe (by the old Sting Wrays), but I'm not sure if they are still there. Food trucks have been very trendy and popular for a little bit now. COVID-19 has probably increased that business model.

Agree that $3 breakfast sandwich is probably not going to work.

Theres a taco truck off 12 in the Tri Villges. Has been for at least 4 years. And there's Eduardos off 12 in Ocracoke that has been there nearly a decade. Not sure when the last time you were on the Outer Banks with your eyes open was...

Check out "Stu's Food Truck" parked at Avon Pier in the mornings. Check Facebook for hours.

There’s the Taqueria Las Ahumaderas food truck in a lot in Rodanthe, Stu’s Food Truck in the Avon Pier parking lot, who serves great breakfast sandwiches, biscuits and gravy, and a good lunch, and the Bandit BBQ food truck in the parking lot at Right On 12 tackle shop in Buxton. All great choices.
