I've tried all of the independent coffee shops in the greater Outer Banks area and Front Porch Cafe has the best coffee and espresso of them all. If only I could exchange those many test cups from the other shops for a single Front Porch...More

This is a wonderful coffee shop with excellent coffee beans and beverages. They have tasty pastries, too. The baristas are friendly and they'll serve up your drink quickly.

Second time going here, definitely not the last. Beautiful local artwork, a fun kids table and gift shop with wine are a few perks of you choose to drink your delicious and organic coffee at the shop. Is busy but they serve you quickly.
