Two Outer Banks favorites, located at the Dunes Shops in Kitty Hawk, have merged into one even better combination under new ownership and a new name - Outer Bean Juice & Java and Seaside Gourmet.

The new owner has blended both businesses that were once separately side-by-side with a tasteful, modern décor, which she enhances by hosting monthly shows featuring works by local artists.

Along with other additions, the new restaurant features an Outer Banks exclusive fresh juice bar. You can start or end your day in the healthiest way possible by enjoying any number of combinations of nutritious and energizing fresh fruit, vegetable or combination drinks, along with smoothies and specialty coffees. Baked goods, snacks and sandwiches will continue to be available as well.

Seaside Gourmet’s delicious meals are as great as ever and can now be enjoyed inside on the premises, as well as to go. The Gourmet prepares its meals using only local seafood and all the locally grown and organic produce that’s available. Along with fresh seafood entrees, blackened or herb-seared, they now offer a marinated chicken special, along with their yummy grilled or stir-fried veggies, complemented by their special secret seasoning recipes. As before, there are several outstanding vegetarian selections, including Gourmet’s one-of-a-kind havarti-stuffed risotto cakes.

With a style they call “elegant simplicity” the Gourmet also offers individualized menus for weddings and other special events.
The Gourmet serves lunch and dinner, with bagels, wraps and salads from 3 - 4 pm, and the coffee and juice bar is open at 7 a.m.
