Amazing coffee! Their Apple Pie Latte is one of the best signature drinks I have had in a while. They rival Caribou when it comes to great specialty drinks. A must stop if you are ever in the Outer Banks.

While we try to portray our business as accurately as possible in the Trip Advisor listing as a coffee shop, there is no separate listing for different food service entities. We are sorry if we did not offer you the venue that you were expecting. If you were to note the signage on the front of our business, it clearly... More

Ordered a mocha with almond milk. It was so bad I had to ask for it to be remade with soy. Still was not very good. Won't go again.

We are very sorry for your disappointing beverage. Sounds like the drink was oversteamed--Soy and almond milk are very touchy to overheating. I will address it with our staff so it will not happen again. Please visit again and your order will be on me. Thanks, Paul Manning, owner More

Took breakfast here two days running last week. Both times we got really good, strong coffee and excellent quality, home made croissants.

I've been to the Front Porch Cafes in all three locations, Kill Devil Hills, Nags Head & Manteo, all in North Carolina. The atmosphere is comfortable with free wifi. Many different kinds of excellent coffee and tea. Cakes & muffins are available. Some musical entertainment. You can't go wrong if you stop in.

The best coffee shop I have ever tried. The locals favorite is my favorite. They will tone it down for you if you like it less sweet, Have it your way. And the pastries are soo good! Get there early for a good variety!

Was in search of a well made so latte. Front Porch Cafe was great, the inside is so clean and easy to just sit and enjoy your coffee. The pastries all looked amazing. I tried the bacon egg and cheese pastry it was very good.

If you're looking for great coffee, a friendly and efficient staff with a great vibe, Front Porch Cafe is your place. I got an Iced Coffee, which the staff said is organic and brewed each morning. They have a ton of other brews and have a nice collection of pastries. Free wifi was a plus!
