Following a recommendation from our hotel we wandered over to the Front Porch and had an awesome breakfast! Our server ERIK was fantastic! Attentive with great suggestions for food and an eagle eye for a "3/4 empty" set of Mimosa and Bloody Mary glasses :)! When we visit South Beach again we are sure to return.

I had a groupon for the front porch which was great but the Happy Hour is so good. Small plates are very fresh and cooked to perfection and the drink specials are at a great price.

My friends and I visited Miami and thought that the Front Porch Cafe looks good for lunch. The hostess was a young woman and when we asked how long the wait would be she said She wasn't sure and had to find someone else to ask. When we did get seated, we sat with four people at a table outside.... More

They serve breakfast all day which is really great. We were a group of 6 and were greeted and seated very quickly and welcomed. We decided to eat outside because it was a great day. Service was fast with a large menu of great dishes. My husband and I choose the breakfast burrito which was great. All our meals came... More

We went here for dinner one night because of a Groupon ($20 for $40 of food/drink). We had reservations for 7:30 but decided we were hungry around 6 and they took us early without issue. We sat overlooking Collins Ave which made for good people watching. We were still within happy hour so tried the discounted appetizer of calamari -... More
