Is this a coffee shop that sells hats or a hat shop that sells coffee? Either way, The Nags Head Shop is the oldest espresso bar on the beach and brews coffee and espresso-based drinks as well as smoothies. A few treats like biscotti and muffins are available too. The hat selection is grand, from outrageous novelty hats (Rasta wigs and the Dr. Seuss variety) to tamer sun hats, Tilley hats, Real Deal Brazil hats, cowboy hats, ball caps and visors. They also sell many popular brands of high-end sunglasses plus Minnetonka Moccasins, sandals, T-shirts, jewelry and gift items.
