A morning on the shore is even better with a fresh baked donut, pastry, or breakfast sandwich, and the Outer Banks has plenty of delicious bakeries to get a visitor's day going.
A number of these bakeries have become traditional stops for long-time vacationers and locals, like the Orange Blossom Bakery in Buxton, a tasty but unimposing shop that almost always has a porch full of hungry patrons on a busy Saturday morning. This bakery is world famous for its Apple Uglies, a regional treat that's filled with warm donut dough, apple filling, and a buttery glaze that's served warm and tastes like a homemade apple pie.
Just a few miles away in Frisco, the Gingerbread House Bakery serves up hearty morning breakfasts in addition to homemade pizzas and subs to dinner patrons, and even offers take-out or delivery service in the summer months.
With so many tasty options available around every corner, vacationers are encouraged to remember that a vacation is all about indulgence. Feel free to taste some of the best aspects of the Outer Banks with a trip to the local bakery, and load up on delicious breads, pastries and decadent desserts to share with all the foodies in your family.
