Duck's Cottage is currently closed due to Covid-19. Our shop is small and makes social distancing next to impossible. We have made the decision to close for the health and safety of our staff, friends and customers. Downtown Books is taking phone-in orders Tuesday, Thursday and Saturdays from 11-3 and will be delivering in the afternoons from Manteo to Duck. We continue to ship both books and coffee from this website! As always we thank you so very much for your friendship and loyalty over the past 18 years and keep all of our customers wrapped in the most positive of thoughts. We look forward to serving everyone again in the near future. Be well friends.
This is the online home of Duck's Cottage Coffee & Books and Downtown Books. Two very independent bookstores located on the beautiful Outer Banks of North Carolina. In our virtual store you'll find our popular artisanal roasted coffee that we ship within the 48 contiguous states; upcoming events at both stores; Outer Banks titles ranging from fiction to history to children's books; directions to our stores; a link to our newsletter and blog and .. the ability to search for and order not only the books we currently have in stock, but anything available through our warehouses as well.
