We stopped here for breakfast on our way to the Bodie Lighthouse. They make an excellent Mocha and the pastries are very good. The atmosphere is interesting and comfortable. AS for cost, about the same as Starbucks but much nicer.

Went here twice in one day! Once in the morning for coffee before breakfast, and to another location in the afternoon when it got chilly. Excellent coffee at both! Spent the afternoon reading in the cozy shop and picked up a bottle of wine for dinner on the way out :)

Nice coffeehouse with great coffee/drinks and atmosphere. I recommend the dawn patrol roast or a caramel latte. Nice amount of seating and spots to check your email.

This is a great little coffee shop. Good coffee and also sells Kombucha. They have free wifi and it's a great place to get a little work done before hitting the beach.

I had heard great things about Front Porch Café, but had never stopped there. While planning my daughter's wedding, one of our vendors (Flower Girls) suggested meeting there to discuss some details. The quality and selection of coffees is unbelievable. You could go there everyday and get something different each time. The staff was friendly and efficient. The seating area... More
