Front Porch Cafe has three community coffeehouses with deliciously fresh-roasted coffee (that you can watch being roasted at the Nags Head location), and the stores feature plenty of seating and free WiFi. Known for offering some of the best artisan-roasted coffee on the beach, they serve an array of specialty coffee drinks, teas and chai. Look for nitro brew and kombucha too. Fresh pastries like croissants, muffins, cinnamon buns and turnovers are baked on site. A wide variety of whole bean coffees are for sale, as is a great selection of beer and wine. This is a great place to hang out — it’s open year round with extended summer evening hours and a community bulletin board with local news and events. Their Nags Head and Manteo locations also serve wine by the glass or bottle to go at competitive prices.
