Your Perfect Afternoon at The Infusion Cafe


If you’re looking to do something unique, fun, and tasty on a quiet afternoon, we’ve got just the place for you while on your vacation to Emerald Isle! A place "steeped in history," full of great food, and a fabulous atmosphere, this is a "must" on your vacation. 

Just a few miles from your vacation rental in Emerald Isle, join the friendly staff at the Infusion Café in Morehead City for some great food, tea, coffee, and amazing entertainment! Open Tuesdays through Fridays 10am until 5pm and Saturdays 11am until 3pm, this is a wonderful spot for some great memories and great food.

Their menu includes an array of delicious sandwiches, soups, quiche, fresh salads, and gourmet desserts. The Infusion Café is also true to its name with over a hundred blends of tea, coffee, and fruit infusions from all over the world! With so many choices of green, black, herbal (my favorite), and rooibos tea as well as specialty blends of coffee, and a delicious entree from the cafe, this is the ideal place for a relaxing afternoon.

If you arrive between 2:30 and 4pm, the Infusion Café also offers a "proper formal afternoon tea.” In the traditional tea-time way, you will be able to enjoy a Victorian style tea service with your choice of tea as well as a three-tiered server of delicious tea time snacks—made specifically for you! Served in beautiful vintage and antique bone china, this will certainly transport you to a peaceful, perfect afternoon worthy of royalty. (Just make sure you call ahead and make your reservation!)

You can also enjoy an array of coffee blends on one of the comfy couches, or enjoy it with your delicious café lunch. Locally roasted, you can also purchase coffee by the pound to brew at home or enjoy a cup served in a French press pot. Baristas can also make you specialty coffees to your taste.

The Infusion Café, however, is not only a great place for a quiet lunch and some tea or coffee though. They also hold special events throughout the month for a truly memorable experience. Every first Saturday of the month, reservations are required for the Formal Tea Event that brings in actors to bring to life the theme of the event. Wizard of Oz, Alice and Wonderland, and the Hundred Acre Wood have been some of the remarkable tea events thus far with many more to come! Another fun event is the dinner theater or "Destination Dinner” performed by the Infusion Café every 3rd Saturday of the month. With events in the past including presentations of Les Miserable, Princess Bride, and The Hobbit, you really can’t go wrong! With so many good things in one place, it’s no wonder that they ask for reservations before you arrive so that you are ensured a spot!

This is such an amazing, fun, memorable place to enjoy great food, delectable desserts, and an infusion of delicious drinks. The Infusion Café is truly a gem of the Crystal Coast—one that you must experience for yourself!

Located inside the History Place in Morehead City, you can find out more about their fabulous events and amazing menu on their Facebook page and official website.
