We are a family of coffee addicts! For us, we need a cup of coffee to get a cup of coffee and one of our favorite things to do when we are exploring a new city is to seek out the local coffee shops. Very close to the Little Washington, North Carolina waterfront boardwalk, is the cutest café called Coffee Caboose Etc.
This adorable building, built in 1913, is made out of a train’s Caboose. Because of that, seating is sparse, but who cares when you can grab something caffeinated and go out exploring! The young girl serving us our drinks was incredibly sweet and our lattes were superb. You could easily tell that this family owned establishment was a local hotspot. There were lots of delicious sweets to choose from as well, but we passed, as we knew we were going to lunch soon.
They even have an area for children to play, so that their parents can enjoy their beverages. That is a total win in my book! Additionally, next to the café is a Sleeper Car, which you can rent as accommodation. It is complete with a queen-sized Murphy bed, futon sleeper, couch, living area, kitchenette, and full bathroom with shower. It is quaint, comfortable, and convenient to all that Little Washington has to offer. Reservations are available through Airbnb.
Another thing that we found out the following morning, which happened to be a Sunday, is that most places in Little Washington are closed on Sundays. Not Coffee Caboose Etc! Now that we were properly refueled it was time to do something that required energy. . .
