There is great surf in North Carolina!
Yes, you have read that correctly. While most surfers wouldn’t think of North Carolina when thinking about booking a surf vacation, the coast offers a variety of locally known surf spots. Hence, I was excited to experience that lifestyle being transferred into great vibes at cafes and restaurants alike.
So, on one of the mornings of our weekend trip to Wilmington, I dragged Yael to the BLUE SURF CAFE. Naturally, as I have loved surfing and the simplicity of a surfer’s lifestyle for years now, the name of the place sparked my attention, and all I wanted to find out was what the interior design would look like and what the food would taste like.
Entering the cafe, I was suprised by the size of the place. Even though it was quite big, the design made it coastal and comfy. The staff was extremely friendly and helped us pick our perfect choice for the most important meal of the day. The only negative, I would say, was the absence of milk options. For someone who’s lactose intolerant, not getting coffee because the only thing offered was cow’s milk, was a bit of a bummer. However, the interior design, the atmosphere, and the food made up for all of it. In the end I ordered the homemade lemonade instead of the usual cappuccino. I must admit, I am kind of glad they didn’t offer soy or almond milk – otherwise I would have never had the pleasure of trying their fabulous lemonade. So there we were, eating and drinking great food, while flipping through surf magazines.
PS: When you eat at the BLUE SURF CAFE, make sure you try their home made ketchup – it is sublime!
The Blue Surf Cafe can be found at 250 Racine Drive, Wilmington, NC 28403.
