LOVE this place!

This is always the first place we stop whenever we visit the OBX for the day. We have had so many different selections I can't really say what my favorite is. The baristas are AMAZING! Always so warm and friendly. I love the atmosphere. I love the fragrance. I love the coffee!

We regularly stop into a Front Porch Cafe for some of their excellent coffee, fresh baked goods and comfortable areas to chat.

My wife and I wanted to try this little place based on reviews. My wife ordered a mocha latte at first, and as I was asking questions about their coffee, she decided to change her order to coffee. We both had a cup of "The Secret to Life." It is a dark roast, which we both prefer. We loved it,... More

This place is one of the great things about the OBX. Baristas are super friendly - Abby, Maria, Kendall, Penny - talking about you:) - and all of them - and the coffee is locally roasted and responsibly sourced.
