Best Coffee...Anywhere!

Great local coffee shop! Great variety of daily brews and excellent speciality drinks as well. Try it once and you will want to take it home if you are on vacation or make it a daily ritual if you are a local.

I stopped in very early for an almond chai latte and was not disappointed. Very foamy and spicy, just like I like it. The price was more than your local St*rbucks, but it's well worth it considering the quality. Check out the great pottery during your visit.

If you're in the Kill Devil or Nags Head area, I highly recommend this place for either your morning cup of coffee or your afternoon pick me up. The service is good and the coffee is some of the smoothest I've had. I usually visit starbucks but if I had a Front Porch Cafe near by, I'd definitely be a... More

We always stop several times at one of the Front Porch Cafe locations when visiting the Outer Banks. They have many different hot and cold coffee drinks, and we have enjoyed everything we've tried. We always get several bags of our favorite coffee, their Dawn Patrol (whole bean for grinding at home) before leaving the Outer Banks. Then we usually... More

I didn't eat here, but I got an iced caramel machiatto (spelling is off, I know) and it was the best I've had..and I drink a lot of coffee! The price was the same as other coffee houses.

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
