Fall in Love with These Cozy Spots

With only a few more weeks of early evenings, warm afternoons will be here before we know it! Before you start packing up your sweaters and jackets, be sure to soak up the last few days of winter by enjoying these cozy spots around Hampton Roads and North Carolina:

Grab a Drink

Colattao Coffee House

1115 Independence Blvd #102, Virginia Beach, VA 23455

  • This cozy little coffee house is Virginia Beach’s best kept secret! With dimmed lighting, lush plants, and plenty of cozy seating for conversation (or for studying), this hole in the wall cafe is just as beautiful as the tasty lattes they make!  

Pangaea Coffee Emporium

 200 Fountains Ln Suite A, Poquoson, VA 23662

  • Sip your specialty coffee or matcha under the glow of the moon and the hundreds of vines and plants that adorn the ceilings and walls throughout this stunning cafe. Designed to look like the inside of a jungle, this Instagram-worthy spot is the perfect place to spend an afternoon playing board games, reading a book, or simply enjoying the scenery. 

The Kraken Coffeehouse

615 E Main St, Elizabeth City, NC 27909

  • Enjoy a frothy latte or refreshing frappe on the banks of the Pasquotank River at this nautical themed cafe! The Kraken Coffeehouse is a local favorite, offering plenty of specialty flavors, local merchandise, and even mushroom coffees!

Cafe Davina

231 Pinner St, Suffolk, VA 23434

  • Experience Paris by taking a trip to Downtown Suffolk! Cafe Davina is a European-inspired coffee bar and crêperie food truck located at the gorgeous Pinner House Boutique Bed and Breakfast.

Grab a Bite

TRIO Restaurant & Market

3708 N Croatan Hwy, Kitty Hawk, NC 27949

  • TRIO has everything you need, whether you are looking for a cozy night out, or a cozy night in. Keeping with its name, it offers three different sections: a vast cheese counter, gourmet beer and wine shop, and a charming restaurant offering fresh fare. 

Quemar Wood-Fired Concina

1201 Laskin Rd #100, Virginia Beach, VA 23451

  • Nothing says cozy like moody lighting, covered patios, and made from scratch flavors. If you are looking to treat yourself to mouthwatering Latin American dishes, Quemar has an array of incredible plates to choose from that are perfect for sharing (or keeping all to yourself- I don’t judge). 

Press 626 

626 W Olney Rd, Norfolk, VA 23507

  • Set in the charming historic Ghent section of Norfolk, Press 626 is housed within a stunning 1906 Victorian home, providing an intimate and relaxing atmosphere. This quaint cafe and wine bar is the perfect setting for afternoon charcuterie or a romantic date night.

Grab a Book

AFK Books & Records

4801 Shore Dr STE D, Virginia Beach, VA 23455

  • Shop secondhand! AFK Books & Records has over 30,000 new and pre-loved books, comics, and audio books to enjoy. Perfect for music lovers, they also have thousands of vinyls that suit all tastes and budgets, and even offer pre-listening so you can try before you buy!

Prince Books

109 E Main St, Norfolk, VA 23510

  • Set in Downtown Norfolk, Prince Books has been open since 1982! The charming brick bookstore offers a wide selection of books ranging from sections on poetry or boating to sections on home design or history! This cozy spot also offers events and an in-store cafe!

The Recycled Reader

1725 City Center Blvd, Elizabeth City, NC 27909

  • Opened in 1997, this cozy mom and pop bookstore is filled to the brim with gently used books, puzzles, and book themed gifts waiting for their next home. Visitors to The Recycled Reader gush about the friendly staff and ability to turn books in for store credit! 

I hope this list of cozy beverages, books, and bites offers you the support you need to get through the next few weeks until we see warmer temperatures again! Until then, stay warm and I hope you enjoy the simple (and cozy) joys of the season!
