About Us 

Hello to all of my loyal Live Oak Cafe patrons. Sorry it took a little while but I’m finally letting everyone know what is going on with the Cafe. As of Labor Day weekend 2017, I closed the doors as a full service restaurant. I would like to thank everybody who supported the restaurant for it's wonderful 15 year run and to all my wonderful staff who over the years made the Live Oak Cafe into a truly great restaurant, I couldn't have done it with out you!

Now, this is not the end of the story. After 15 years, a lot has changed and it was time for the Cafe to evolve. So starting in September of 2017 the Live Oak Cafe has become:

The Live Oak on Howe

We are now exclusively an event venue and catering service. In conjunction with Bobbi Blackmon from The Confectionary we can provide any type of off-site catering from small cocktail parties at an individuals home to full blown wedding receptions and anything in between. As for the The Live Oak on Howe, we can accommodate private parties from 15 - 65 people depending on the style of service. So give us a call and we will work with you to tailor make your event, one to remember!

Whether it is at your house or ours.

614 N. Howe Street
Southport, North Carolina 28461


We hope you enjoy this site as we have made it more mobile friendly.
