I ordered some sort of chocolate latte that was awesome. The iced caramel latte my wife ordered was strong and delicious. The muffins tasted great as well. STOP going to crappy Starbucks and support a great local business! Good hustle!

Found Front Porch Coffee last year and returned again this year. Just as good, the best cup of coffee I have had in the Outer Banks. Excellent customer service and atmosphere. Save yourself the trouble and just go here for the perfect cup of coffee.
