In a renovated gas station, this wonderfully cheerful bistro has large front windows and lots of patio seating. The herbed hummus with toasted pita is fantastic, as are the fat crab cakes and baked crab-dip appetizer. Other choices include salads, veggie wraps, seafood enchiladas, burgers of all kinds, and hearty sandwiches. Light eaters beware: even the Waldorf salad comes with a million pecans and apples; expect lots of cheese on any dish that includes it. The café
also serves specialty cocktails, maintains a thoughtfully selected wine list, and offers North Carolina beers.
