The Outer Banks hosts a lot of travelers throughout the year, especially during the summer months, and you can bet that those travelers are thirsty and in need of caffeine. Many of them have traveled long hours to get to the Banks. In recent years we’ve seen a string of local coffee shops and roasters spring up around the barrier islands. One of the first we discovered was the Front Porch Cafe.
Front Porch has three locations around Manteo, Nags Head, and Kill Devil Hills. The company is home to Kill Devil Coffee roasters, and you can purchase the beans at the stores. Their chalkboard menus give you a complete list of the beans available and their sources.
They also have a big display of teas available. Overall, we’ve found Front Porch Cafe to be a very friendly and welcoming stop. It’s nice being able to support local businesses while we’re on the island, rather than running through a generic drive-through. If you’re passing through the area, or if you need some coffee beans for your vacation, stop on in!
