Down Eats: The Kitchen Table in Havelock


Since opening up, the Kitchen Table has been offering people in Havelock an alternative choice when it comes to freshly made food with unique twists.

Whether it’s the homemade muffins, or the healthier options, each dish is crafted by owner and chef Debra Silva.

“Really the only kind of food you could find was fast food or junk food, and I always wanted some place that had homemade food that I didn’t have to make that didn’t cost an arm and a leg,” she said.

Following culinary school in Morehead City, Silva began serving people in Craven County.

One of the most popular dishes is the classic biscuits and gravy, featuring homemade butter-milk biscuits with an ocean of homemade sausage gravy.

“It has almost a full cup of gravy,” Silva said.

“The biscuit is really flaky, nice and warm and airy. You get that buttery taste,” said WNCT’s Josh Birch.

The restaurant has become a staple for many, with some saying they come at least one or twice at day.

“It’s clean. The food is delicious. It has people that have personality that wait on you,” said Margaret Lewis.

Silva puts a twists on the classics, like the Cali Turkey sandwich, which features a homemade sriracha avocado spread.

“It reminded me of California. I was stationed out there for about 12 years off and on,” Silva said, who served in the Marine Corps before opening up the restaurant. 

The regulars say they’re really glad The Kitchen Table opened up.

“We have a lot of Italian, we have a lot of fast food, a lot of Mexican, but this provides us with a variety of food that we ordinarily do not have,” said Judy Bird.
