Co-owner, Front Porch Cafe
Susannah’s passion runs deep for uniquely prepared foods with high quality ingredients. Together with her design talent the Front Porch Café is a captivating, fun environment quite unlike most “coffee shops” around the country.
The Front Porch Café was first opened in 1999 at the original Milepost 6 location. Over the years, the business has successfully expanded to 3 locations, adding storefronts in Nags Head and Manteo. The café roasts all of their coffees in house, and bakes a wide assortment of pastry from scones to croissants and muffins.
Susannah trained with King Arthur Flour in breads and pastries under Jeffrey Himmelman, and is a certified Barista Trainer. She and her husband Paul Manning moved to the Outer Banks 16 yeas ago and reside in Kill Devil Hills.
