We are the PENNSYLVANIA couple that had a very nice dining experience at Front Porch Cafe. Our server Chris was the absolute BEST!!! He was better than any hotel concierge at pointing out local attractions in the South Beach area.

As a local in South Beach, this is one of my favorite spots for breakfast! Elizabeth, my usual waiter, delivers exceptional service as does the rest of the staff. And the food is always delicious (and quick!) I highly recommend that everyone enjoy a meal there!

So we walked all the way down Ocean Drive passing restaurant after restaurant soliciting our business. But I was on a mission because I had heard about The Front Porch. It did not disappoint! We sat outside - we were in the sun but there was a nice breeze. Our server, Jose Carlo, was exceptional! He was smart, kind, attentive... More

As a local its tough to find good food on Ocean Drive at a good price point. This place hits that mark. I was supirsed at the value and portion size. The Front Porch has always been know for good food since it used to located down the street and it sttill conintiues.

We only had a short time in the Miami area, after our cruise ship docked and before our plane departed. I did some research on Trip Advisor and this restaurant came highly recommended. It did not disappoint! Lunch was absolutely delicious, and our waitress Elizabeth, was attentive and respectful of our limited time. Great food, great service and an amazing... More

Elizabeth was the best waitress ever. This place has unbelievable food, atmosphere and service. The French Toast and Green Eggs are outrageous.

During our four day stay in Miami's South Beach we ate twice at The Front Porch. It had the curb appeal we were seeking. A place where we could dine outside and watch the parade of people without being right on the street. It really did feel like sitting on the Front Porch. Our server, Peter, was welcoming, knowledgeable and... More

Had the best Mahi ever! Moist,flaky with a delicious pico d gallo accompaniment. Service was great. Paid bill & added gratuity. Did not notice that a "service" was already added to the check which was for a party of two. Tipped $35.00 on a $65.00 check. Pretty European-not expecting that in Miami. Peter, our server was a great conversationalist

A visit to the Front Porch cafe for brunch is a must whenever I visit Miami Beach. The extended menu covers everything you'd ever want for a fab brunch experience. I'm always partial to the omelettes, either the Mediterranean with the sun dried tomatoes, or the Californian, with the avocado. Bloody Marys and a cappuccino seal the deal and make... More
