I've been frequenting Front Porch Cafe ever since I've been vacationing in the OBX, and it's always been my go-to spot for coffee and relaxation. Great coffee, friendly staff, welcoming ambiance...you just can't beat it.

I ordered some sort of chocolate latte that was awesome. The iced caramel latte my wife ordered was strong and delicious. The muffins tasted great as well. STOP going to crappy Starbucks and support a great local business! Good hustle!

Found Front Porch Coffee last year and returned again this year. Just as good, the best cup of coffee I have had in the Outer Banks. Excellent customer service and atmosphere. Save yourself the trouble and just go here for the perfect cup of coffee.

The coffee and espresso have a great flavor that's not covered up by the syrups in the espresso drinks. Service was personable; enjoyed talking with who appeared to be the owner or manager. Will definitely be back while in town!
