Great place for a cup of Joe. We found this little place close to our vacation rental on S Virginia Dare Trail (2905) - right next to the Food Lion.

Best coffee had in the Outer Banks. No need to look further. Tried Waveriders for coffee, it was good. However, had coffee at both Nags Head and Kill Devil Hills Front Porch locations and it just cannot be beat. Once found, I returned every morning.

Got the SF Caramel latte and it was Delicious. Highly recommend this local coffee shop. Not many baked goods available when we were there at 3pm but the sprinkle cookie was Delicious according to my daughters.
