Many of our readers were disappointed when one of the island's most popular restaurants, the Cafe Atlantic, closed its doors more than a year ago. If I remember correctly, the Cafe, owned and operated by Bob & Ruth Toth, opened in 1988. Amy recently found these photos of the building when it was brand new.
This winter Garrick & Jacqui Kalna have been having the former Cafe Atlantic remodeled and expanded, and have plans to open a new venture there, the 1718 Ocracoke Brew Pub, in the spring.
I will publish more information about the 1718 Brew Pub as the grand opening approaches.
