Duck’s Cottage Coffee & Books turns ten years old on Sunday, celebrating a decade of slinging coffee and peddling books along the Outer Banks. Owned by partners Allen Lehew and John Power, Duck’s Cottage prides itself on its “eclectic, hand-picked mix of fiction, nonfiction, cookery, children’s biographies, and local and regional books.”
It also prides itself on coffee, including the Cottage Specialties: the Mucky Duck, the Nutty Duck, and the Swan. Delicious! And if you don’t know what those are, then that’s just the excuse you need to get out to Duck this summer and taste them for yourself. And, you know, maybe shop for a couple books while you’re there.
Happy birthday, Duck’s Cottage: many happy returns!
