When I visit my son in Kill Devil Hills, I start my mornings with a visit to the Mile Post 6 Front Porch Café. The staff is really friendly and the coffee is delicious. The little knick-knacks are fun to check out when you're there too.

This is a small shop with just some drinks and muffins. No seating was available except for outside or in a room next door. The coffee was fine and the staff was friendly, but very limited selection of food. It's fine if that's what you want.

Nice little coffe shop and friendly staff. Good bagels, pastries. If you enjoy a real good cup of coffee and do not mind spending several dollars for it, give it a try. Cheeper to brew coffee at home but a nice treat once in a while.

The friendly people at this shop and the artsy atmosphere coupled with the great coffee, specialty coffee/tea drinks and homemade baked goods made this my favorite morning spot each morning of our vacation here in OBX.
