West 3rd is always a great idea. Love this place and have for years. Apparently, I'm not the only one!

I went to this cafe twice over the last week, and I was very pleased both times! Front Porch Cafe defies its strip mall location (though it is a nice, new strip mall) with very quaint and colorful exterior and interior, furnished with local arts and crafts, plenty of comfy seating and brightly colored Adirondack chairs. The service was good... More

We stopped in here for a coffee and glad we did. We went again the next day. The place is amazing. Nice open space with a large area to sit and relax with wifi, also has take out. We had coffee (lots of great choices) and also split a bagel. We will go back!

Good Wi-Fi, tasty coffee. NOT a charming location, in a strip mall on the busy highway but easy to find.

Last time I was in KDH, I stopped at the tiny cafe for coffee and was pleasantly surprised by the quaint beachy feel, friendly staff and awesome coffee. I'm happy to report that 3 years later, I was just as happy as I was during my first visit. I recognized staff members (some who have been there for 15 years!)... More

Great coffee in a laid back, friendly setting; muffins were good too. It's in a strip of stores with not much of a view but if you just want a great cup of coffee, drop on in then take your cup to the beautiful beach 2 minutes away.

A bit hard to find, but worth searching out. Charming little coffee play with a great breakfast croissant.

Great coffee and pastries. I loved the scones. The atmosphere is so relaxing. We were in the Kitty Hawk location but later that week we were on Roanoke Island and they have one down there as well. Super cute building too! Will definitely go back and I have already told everyone about this place.
