This was a nice place to visit for breakfast. The morning glory muffin was still warm when served, it was delicious. Had a cherry cheesecake pastry, again, delicious. Friendly service and very clean. We will be going back.

Our last day of vacation and we visit for coffee and bagel. Staff is friendly, service was fast and bagel was good! Coffee choices were outstanding. The smell of fresh baked pastries in the air . Felt as welcoming as home and I am sure we will come back on our next visit to obx!

Front Porch in Manteo has great coffee, very good croissants, friendly staff, newspapers, and locals for regular customers. Just one more reason to visit Manteo on Roanoke Island.

We were out driving around Manteo for the day. We were looking for a WIFI spot to have a little down time before going to The Lost Colony presentation. Great coffee, relaxed atmosphere. They even have board games available. The kids played several before we leave.

Don't go in and think your gonna get a meal! It's a coffee shop with pastries. Nice place to go chill out and read the paper and talk with the locals.

This coffee house is located on the main highway in Manteo. It serves coffee, hot tea, and pastries. They also have a wine selection. It is a good place to go to have a hot drink, read, or use your laptop. Friendly people; good place to relax.

The staff are very friendly and it has a wonderful atmosphere. You have a large variety of coffees and teas to choose from which can make for difficult choices. And they have choices like muffins, cinnamon rolls, etc.

Came into the front porch cafe for the first time and experienced tremendously good service and food as well. Our waiter Elizabeth was very attent with us in making sure we had everything we needed. She recommended us both spectacular plates; the French toast and the hummus and chicken pita. On top of that the bust boys were extremely helpful... More

Good atmosphere great coffee...would definitely return....very friendly service....the coffee is artisan roasted on the outer banks....they source their beans seeking out small independent farmers with a focus on sustainability....as quoted from the coffee cup.

This was great for breakfast. Our lattes were a little sweet, but otherwise very good, and the filled croissants were outstanding.
