This location is bigger than our normal one in KDH, but the service was just as friendly. We love the "Dawn Patrol" and brought a bag home with us. We try a different kind of coffee each time and have never been disappointed. They will even custom mix different brands for you and are great to recommend coffees according to your taste.
We were also looking to replace a broken coffee mug purchased there years ago and when it was determined that they no longer carry that particular style, they recommended we check at a place in downtown Manteo. Love that kind of community-minded service.

This is a lovely stop in Manteo. We stopped for breakfast after a night in a local motel. I had read other reviews, and decided to try it. I got a latte and croissant, and my husband had a mocha. The cafe was clean and cute, with plenty of seating. the local art was good, and the offerings were varied. The drinks were a solid 7/10, above average for me.

The coffee was ok, but nothing to brag about. The rolls and muffins were ok, but I have had much better elsewhere. The inside was large, but most people came in left with their purchase. Yes you could have your coffee, on the porch, but the only view is the traffic.

Reviews were confusing, this is not a restaurant, it is a coffee shop. The coffee and cookies were great but this was about all they had, not a place to get a full breakfast. Still it was very good coffee.

Thank you for taking the time to post a review on the Front Porch Cafe, and thank you for visiting us, we greatly value your feedback. While we put great effort to accurately portray our business on this site, all food service establishments are listed under Restaurants in Trip Advisor's reviews, they do not provide sub listings according to menu. Our web link on the site will take you to our website where our full menu is listed.

While we make no bones about being a Coffee Shop, "coffee and cookies" is a far cry from all that we offer! Our bakery selection features over a dozen different items, all baked on site daily--including ham, egg and cheese croissants.

Stopped in for a bagel and had some awesome chai. They also have a lovely selection of locally made cards as well as other items. A nice place to relax!
