OBX Fall Food & Drink Tour

It’s fall y’all!

Autumn is here, and we all know what that means: the weather is cooling off, the days are getting shorter, and all the fall food and drink flavors that we love are finally calling our names. Luckily, we know just where to satisfy those seasonal cravings here on the Outer Banks. Join us as we travel town by town, highlighting our favorite fall food and drink suggestions on this tasty autumnal tour.

Whether you’re looking for a comforting meal, warm beverage, or sweet treat, there’s a fall food or drink treat nearby just for you. Take your fall treat to the beach and check the surf while you’re out.

Kill Devil Hills

Ashley’s Espresso Parlour
100 E Helga St, Kill Devil Hills, NC 27948

Charis Coffee Company
107 G Budleigh St, Manteo, NC 27954

Few things bring us more joy than biting into a soft and flaky cruffin from Charis Coffee Company, except when that cruffin tastes like fall! With new flavors out every week, there is a cruffin to satisfy every taste bud. But make sure to get there early or they might disappear!

Twiddy & Company Home-Cooked Favorites

And while we think the best way to experience fall includes a taste tour through OBX, here are a few of our home-cooked fall favorites to tie you over ’til your next getaway.

Butternut Squash Risotto

This butternut squash risotto is our go-to comfort meal. Paired with shrimp, this warm dish will become a coastal fall favorite.

Autumn In Paradise

One sip of Autumn in Paradise and you will be back on the beach! Don’t forget to stock up on Kill Devil Pecan Rum to give this drink the perfect OBX touch.

Pumpkin Cookies

A recipe passed down through generations, these pumpkin cookies have stood the test of time. From our family to yours, we share this fall favorite with you.
