Front Porch does a nice job roasting their beans and brews a good cup of coffee. Don't let the strip mall locations put you off, the interior of each of their locations is interesting (see the pic below). They are a locally owned company and, in turn, they support local artists, businesses and projects. They have muffins, bagels, etc. so... More

My favorite drink is the Organic Surfers Trifecta with a shot of love (also know as a shot of hazelnut). If you are a true connoisseur of coffee, you need to try it. My wife's favorite is the Papua New Guinea Trifecta with a shot of hazelnut. The smoothest cup of coffee you'll ever drink. The Front Porch Cafe staff... More

I always stop here on leaving NC. I really enjoy the muffins; good variety and tasty, e.g., morning glory or blueberry. Didn't have the orange cranberry, but it looked good too. I also like the choices of tea or coffee. The chai latte is particularly good.

We stopped here for breakfast on our way to the Bodie Lighthouse. They make an excellent Mocha and the pastries are very good. The atmosphere is interesting and comfortable. AS for cost, about the same as Starbucks but much nicer.

Went here twice in one day! Once in the morning for coffee before breakfast, and to another location in the afternoon when it got chilly. Excellent coffee at both! Spent the afternoon reading in the cozy shop and picked up a bottle of wine for dinner on the way out :)

Nice coffeehouse with great coffee/drinks and atmosphere. I recommend the dawn patrol roast or a caramel latte. Nice amount of seating and spots to check your email.

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.
