Usually on South Beach when the gratuity is already included, the service suffers. However, this was not the case for my front porch cafe experience. I dined for breakfast, which I know can get very busy, especially on a Sunday morning. To my surprise, I was sat instantly, and my server ERIC greeted us within a minute. The food came... More

Would highly recommend Front Porch Cafe for breakfast. The food (we had the Philly cheesesteak omelet and the French toast) was absolutely delicious. The service was very good and quick, especially for as busy as they were. Not to mention sitting on the porch gives you a great view while you enjoy your meal. Can be a little pricey, but... More

Decided to have a late snack before heading home. The menu here changes and the pizza I had the time before wasn't avaliable. After looking over the changed menu I decided to just get appetizers. The others preferred a fish special. The food arrived quickly and was very good. Service was quick and friendly. A nice late night snack.

I went for breakfast because everyone says this is the best place in SoBe for french toast. I thought the food was average and I've had much better french toast. My breakfast was $22. French toast, eggs, sausage, juice, and fruit. Also, they add a "service charge" to the bill. My food was $22 but the bill said $25. I... More
