Carolyn and Gary Schena moved to Hatteras Island in 2003 with a vision of escaping big city life and enjoying a relaxed way of living at the beach. They started Studio12, an art studio and gallery that also served french press coffee. This was the origins of Samantha's Coffee Smoothie, named after their daughter. Samantha's has manifested into its own cafe complete with espresso machine, high tech blenders and fresh baked goodies! We love serving 100% fruit smoothies because we know you can feel good about what you are putting into you body, and we even offer organic selections too! Do stop in and enjoy a good cup of coffee or dynamite smoothie!
