This is a great little coffee shop. Good coffee and also sells Kombucha. They have free wifi and it's a great place to get a little work done before hitting the beach.

I had heard great things about Front Porch Café, but had never stopped there. While planning my daughter's wedding, one of our vendors (Flower Girls) suggested meeting there to discuss some details. The quality and selection of coffees is unbelievable. You could go there everyday and get something different each time. The staff was friendly and efficient. The seating area... More

Enjoyed the coffee and the atmosphere during our 10 minute stop to caffeinate my group headed to Corolla. Would love to try a pastry in the future!

Good place for a coffee break! Didn't get any pastries so I can't comment on that. The coffee is the best. They also have fresh ice tea.

We first went to take a look at the baked goods. It seemed more like a great coffee spot. Open and very relaxed, pleasant atmosphere and smelled of roasting coffee beans. We went back a few days later to buy a "fresh" baked good to eat on the way home. Very disappointed. Very few items in the display case at... More

Our family has been coming to Nag's Head for Christmas week for three years now and we ALWAYS create time to stop at this awesome coffee shop. Beyond making creative, delicious lattes, you can tell it serves as a nexus of community life. I love reading the ads for classes and activities on the boards, and flipping through the various...
