Great Coffee and atmosphere

Many cool things to buy - and great coffee. Stop in and see them! They even have a large too go coffee box if you need to get coffee for the family or friends. They have tea, and really nice mugs you can buy, too.

You love to see a small business be successful and grow. It's great when they celebrate their success by supporting community events and organizations and that's what the Front Porch Cafe has done. They promote civic events, support local organizations and fellowships, and promote other small local businesses. Of course, the coffee and treats are terrific! Next door you can... More

Instead of getting coffee at the hotel, we ended up getting coffee from Front Porch during most of our stays in Outer Banks. It seems like a local joint that locals go. I just wanted coffee, so for $2.25, I got 16oz regular brewed coffee. They have other types of coffee, and you should try it, especially if you want... More

I found the Front Porch Cafe years ago when I took my daughter to Glazin' Go-Nuts (located next door). I have been hooked ever since, and we always stop for a cup of tea or coffee, on our way

My regret is that we didn't find this coffee house/cafe until the last day of our stay in Kill Devil Hills. We'll definitely make it a regular stop next year.
