Peaceful Patio, Good Food

I love sitting on the patio at Back Porch as there are lots of tables, a deck, and a water feature; however, no dogs are allowed. There are separate breakfast and lunch menus - I've only had breakfast but it's always been good - I really enjoy the spinach quiche. The service is good - nothing... read more

My wife and I came here for lunch one day. I said I knew of a cute little place where the food is great. I was a little embarrassed about the service we received. The guy serving us was so unbelievably rude that we asked to speak to a manager. The same guy explained he was the manager. We then... More

Chorizo burrito had puddles of grease around it. Mimosa was very small and cost $7. Cinnamon roll was ordinary and cool; it seemed a bit old and not homemade.

We visited this wonderful spot as part of a group of about 20. We had the separate outdoor room for our group. Considering our group size and how busy the restaurant was, the service was amazing. The kitchen made a few errors on some orders, but they promptly fixed and a few free cinnamon rolls were handed out as well.... More

Came here because of a Groupon. Odd location near Odell's but very interesting and homey building. We came Saturday morning and were seated immediately, but the line soon picked up after us so come early. We got the chorizo burrito and the two egg platter. The thing that annoyed me the most is that for already being $8-$10 entrees, the... More

I love this place for breakfast. It is far better than the trendier places in the heart of Old Town. They bake their own stuff and they put a little twist in the standard fare breakfast items. I've become addicted to their green chili sauce so if you're like me try their chorizo omelette.

Fine, that sums up the experience here. Long waits between ordering,receiving food, coffee, the bill and the correction to the bill. (We were charged for milk to put in our coffee) The patio is a charming area walled in on the 2 street sides and foliage on the other 2 sides. The menu leans to Mexican influenced items but you...

The Back Porch Cafe is still one of the best if not THE BEST place for breakfast in Fort Collins. The bread is homemade right there and whatever you order will taste like it is homemade too. Service is exceptional and we highly recommend this wonderful place for breakfast or lunch.

We dropped by the backporch for a late lunch and enjoyed the fact that it was just before closing and not very busy. We sat out on the proverbial back porch and had a nice meal. The portions were generous and everything was cooked just fine. It just wasn't better than average, except for the fact that my meal of... More
