In a word: disappointing.
A simple modification (fresh instead of caramelized onion) to my omelet was denied by the kitchen and owners of the establishment because the contents were purported to be pre-mixed in the back.
They were unable to serve the dish unless it came out as described on the menu.
..seriously? Fair enough. No more Front Porch Cafe for me.
Yummm – I really like coming here for the occasional brunch. I say occasional only because it priced a little higher than an every weekend kind of place. Other than that the food is really good with large portions, and the atmosphere is inviting.
Great Food – Yes we had to wait for dinner but it was a Friday night at 7pm. The food was great. the service was amazing and the view is worth evry dollar.
Great Place for Brunch – My boyfriend and I traveled to the Cafe for brunch after reading all of the reviews. The trip was well worth it, there was no one on the corner bugging you to eat there, mostly locals (what a relief). The food was excellent and the service was wonderful. Daniel is the best.
The food is amazing and the location is great. – There are a ton of restuarants up and down Ocean that try to get you to eat there, I am so glad we held out for the Front Porch. The food is so good and the service is great! We went there twice and wait maybe 10 minutes at the most. Not to mention it is not that expensive. I was trying to stay on my diet while on vacation and I found a ton of healthy food options at Front Porch that made it really easy.
Good food. Slow Service. – this place has good food, big portions and at low prices. The service is a little slow - probably because they include the gratuity even on a party of two.
Aside from the wait, great breakfast & lunch joint! – I came here for brunch w/ a friend and though we waited about 15-20min for a table, I think it was well worth the wait. I had an omelet, she had a grilled chicken breast sandwich w/ pesto -- we both loved our food but were disappointed with the mediocre fruit bowl that accompanied our meal. Our food was reasonable considering we were right on beautiful Ocean Dr.
Great breakfast spot – Biscuit meal is fabulous! The bacon and potatoes are scrumptious. Fresh squeezed orange jusice was very refreshing. Also a wonderful spot to watch people passing by on the beach front.
Best Brunch on the Beach – I love this place! On Ocean Drive where the competition is severe, this place shines by delivering real food. You can feel the effort put into each plate. I?m not talking fancy gourmet...I'm talking simple yet delish dishes. The breakfast bonanza with sliced tomatoes on the side is the only hangover helper I could ever recommend. The staff is friendly...the menu is huge and wholesome. The dinners are good too...try the chicken breast stuffed with goat cheese and the Mango chutney on top. The secret got out a year back though so expect a wait on weekends for breakfast...
Great portions – I would go here for the food, which was delicious and large portions. Typical SoBe pricing, but you do get what you pay for here. The location is far enough off the beaten path of Ocean Drive, that getting a table isn't too difficult. Staff was nice, but do not go for a quick bite, just relax and enjoy the quieter side of Ocean Drive.
