Situated in a quaint, Victorian cottage under 300+ year-old live oaks in the sound-side village of Colington Harbor, The Colington Café is the gem of the Outer Banks dining scene. Southern Living rated it as The Best Restaurant for the Best Price on the Outer Banks. Its homey interior reflects the area's humble beginnings without sacrificing elegance.Diners select from an eclectic menu that ranges from filets with French-inspired sauces to Southern-style backfin crab cakes to grilled local shrimp topped with a tropical fruit salsa. Guests will also delight in the presence of historic North Carolina artwork. Despite its upscale atmosphere, this restaurant maintains surprisingly modest prices on an outstanding menu.
