Great staff, great vibe and great coffee. Really, really outstanding coffee. Having drank some foul swill on the drive down from Canada, this place was a real find. Intend to visit every morning of holiday for coffee. Also..... inexpensive for gourmet coffee. Kids loved the pastries and cakes.

This is my morning ritual at the beach. Coffee, pastries, and WiFi. It is located in a cute strip of shops with a pottery making place and bead shop next door. I like the friendly folks and pleasant atmosphere!

We stopped in for some afternoon tea/coffee. We only had drinks, but they had other options there. The service was good, the coffee great and I personally enjoyed a fabulous tea! You could enjoy sitting on sofas/chairs or a table atmosphere.

It was surprisingly hard to find a coffee shop or a quick breakfast in the outer banks, so we got lucky with the front porch cafe. Good non chain coffee and home made baked goods, they aldo had made to order breakfast and lunch if you want more than a pastry. Also have local art and other things available for... More

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.

Thank RobertaC1632
