Nice spot for great coffee and baked goods.

Large selection of coffee and teas, as well as great, fresh baked products, i.e. croissants and bagels. Carbonated drinks are forbidden, so you must bring your own.

We stopped for a cup of coffee and a break. We were very happy we stopped. Wonderful coffee, very friendly service. Nice atmosphere and clean. Wonderful coffee...next time we'll sample the treats. We enjoyed being able to sit at a nice table and relax. Table arrangement is inviting and no need to be concerned about scraping elbows with the people... More

This place always has good coffee, but the cinnamon rolls are really to die for. It's part of our vacation tradition.

Before leaving for home, we stopped by the Front Porch Cafe. I regret that we did not find this place earlier. I picked this place because of the wonderful reviews on Tripadvisor. The blueberry muffins were to die for and were hot out of the oven. We also ordered a few lattes that were made extremely well. thank you for... More

Strolled in after a workout and needed fueling up with an iced americano. They knocked it out of the park!! Delicious, many bean varieties and specialty drinks. Nice cafe seated area as well.
