The Dancing Turtle

Across from the fishing harbor in Hatteras Village, you will find a one of a kind place. The Dancing Turtle was established in 2004 and since it’s opening, the café has become a place for locals and visitors alike to kick back with their favorite brew, relax with friends, and share stories of their island adventures. The first thing you will notice when walking through the front door is the welcoming atmosphere and friendly faces. It’s hard to describe, but people have said it feels like a warm hug every time you walk in to the Turtle.

In 2012, Evan and Brian, with their pups Jackson and Haddie close by their side, took over the shop with the plan to continue the long standing history of the Turtle and make sure it remains a place everyone feels welcome. On your next visit to the Outer Banks, make sure to stop in!
