(Satellite phot of Hatteras Island, I pointed the location of Island Perks Cafe Restaurant, Orange Blossom Bakery and others.)
Orange Blossom Bakery and Cafe…
This place absolutely has the right to be famous with its Apple Uglies, Donuts and all other baked goods.
The place is amongst the old places of the Island, so let’s firstly take a look at its history shortly.
The place was originally built as as the Orange Blossom Motel in the 1950s, the name comes from orange trees that were located on the property.The original owners of the bakery are Mr & Mrs Barnette.After Mr. Barnette passed away, the motel was converted to a bakery by Doris and Allan Oakham and Lillian Hundley.Henry and Michal who bought the bakery in 1991 made some major conversions, and added the café to the bakery, hence our name of the Orange Blossom Bakery & Café!Tab and Stacy Stacks bought the bakery from Henry and have endeavored to keep all of the wonderful things about the Orange Blossom just the same – and make small improvements from customer suggestions.And finally, in summer 2007, Cahrley Pereira has started to own this spectacular place.
