Caffeinated Love Notes

We have another Front Porch Café love story for you as we continue to celebrate our 20 year anniversary – and this one is guaranteed to make you say, “Awe!”


Kimberly Parks is the owner and master stylist at Bangs Salon, which happens to be in the same Milepost 6 shopping center as our Kill Devil Hills Front Porch location.


For the last eight years, Kimberly’s sweet husband, Brian, has made it his daily routine to stop into our coffee shop, pay for his wife’s coffee, and use our staff’s trusty Sharpie marker to write a sweet love note on Kimberly’s coffee cup. Then he leaves it for Kimberly to come in and pick up before she starts her work day at the salon. When she swings by our shop, the staff is ready with her hot cup of the best coffee on the beach, and a little love from her hubby.


I mean – how cute is THAT?


A few years ago, it occurred to Kimberly to begin photo-documenting the cups. She has hundreds of them captured now to remember forever. We’ve included a photo collage with just a small sampling of these priceless caffeinated love notes!
